I made the most delicious, gluten-free roast braised in my slow cooker the other day. It was lean and flavorful and it sliced easily so it was easy to serve. The juices were fragrant with the Mediterranean seasoning and the savory vegetables. And, to top it all off, the sandwiches that I will make from the leftovers will be wonderful… We’ve had this before… Many times!
When I did thicken the juices to make a gluten-free gravy the way my husband likes it, we really enjoyed it. I used sweet rice flour for thickening this time. But, arrowroot powder or potato starch flour would work too if you’re cooking paleo.
A little while before serving time, I stirred the thickener into some of the juices and then stirred that back into the crockpot. It made such an easy gravy! There was plenty of flavor in the juices, so without any thickening it would still be excellent if you are on a low-carb diet.

I always like to have a few quick healthy meals handy like this gluten-free recipe made from kale, onion and peppers.
My husband actually likes this combination with kale, even though he never gets excited when he hears it’s on the menu. (Don’t tell him that I know he likes it J)
Having several 30 minute meals ready to go when necessary can be a lifesaver.
For more protein to go with these veggies, you can cook an egg or two in the center of the pan during the last few minutes of cooking time. These eggs are not technically poached since they aren’t in water deep enough to cover them, but they will cook nicely if you…
