  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary, or 1/4 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Melt the butter in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add the carrot, onions, rosemary, pepper and garlic. Sauté 8 minutes, or until browned. Stir in the broth, scraping the pan to loosen the browned bits. Stir in the turkey and rice; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce the heat, and simmer 1 hour and 15 minutes ,or until the rice is tender.

Lightly spoon the flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Combine the flour and milk in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk. Add to the pan. Cook over medium heat until thick (about 8 minutes), stirring frequently. Stir in the sherry and salt.
