To make a quick and simple gravy, pour out all the pan juices. Strain and skim off the fat. Heat on low in a saucepan. Mix 2 tbsp (30 mL) cornstarch with some water until dissolved. Add this to the gravy and heat to a simmer until the mixture thickens.
  1. Make sure the turkey is thawed and giblets have been removed.
  2. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
  3. Pat the bird dry with paper towels.
  4. Rub the turkey with olive oil, inside and out.
  5. Combine all spices to make a rub. Sprinkle generously onto the bird, inside and out.
  6. Halve the lemons, quarter the onions and peel the garlic.
  7. Stuff the cavity with the lemons, onions, garlic and thyme.
  8. Place the bird into your roasting pan. Add wine and chicken broth.
