When my Beloved went gluten free again, I could no longer use my favorite green enchilada sauce from a can.  Wheat flour was in it.  There are gluten free enchilada sauces out there but you pay a pretty penny and my Beloved would rather not have chicken broth.  Vegetable broth is good but not chicken.  I decided I needed to try to make green enchilada sauce.  It is actually quite easy.  There was not anything difficult about it so then I had to wonder why I wished to use the can stuff.  Just a sigh.....

Vegetarian Gluten Free Green Enchilada Sauce

1 onion, peeled and minced

1/4 cup olive oil

1/4 cup millet flour

2 cups vegetable broth

1 (4 ounce) can chopped green chile, drained

1/2 cup chopped green onions

1/2 cup chopped cilantro

1 tomatilla diced (optional)


In a large pot, put the olive oil and heat over a medium high heat.  Add the onion.  Let the onion get brown.  Mix in the millet flour.  You want the millet flour to make a roux and not taste raw.  

Add the vegetable broth.  Mix until there are no lumps.  Mix in the chiles, green onion, cilantro, and tomatilla.  Let it cook for a few minutes and then blend.

It is really that simple.  I made extra and put in jars for the freezer.  Next time, I may add a head of roasted garlic.  Yum!
