Gratifying Vegetable Gravy [Recipe]
There are two types of people in this world; those who liberally dress their Thanksgiving dinner in gravy and those who prefer a healthy dollop of cranberry sauce instead. In spite of my sweet tooth, when it comes to roast dinners I’m pretty traditional and typically lean towards a generous pour of gravy. Don’t let it’s liquid consistency fool you though, as it can be far from light when it comes to calories.
Depending on how it’s made and quite how liberal you are with your pour, your gravy could contain between 10-20 grams of fat and carbs per serving. That’s a lot when you think about all the other foods you’re likely to consume throughout the day.
Gravy is typically made from the juice of cooked meat and thickened with flour or cornstarch. In this recipe, we cut the fat by using vegetables and water as the base for the sauce. So not only in this gravy fat-free, it’s also gluten free and completely vegan!
Now you can enjoy that extra slice of pumpkin pie cheesecake! 😉
