Healthy Gravy

Healthy Gravy

Oh goodness!  What’s a pile of mashed potatoes without a ladle full of gravy?  The problem is, gravy is a pretty carb heavy delicacy because it’s traditionally made with flour.  Well, you may now welcome gravy back to the table with this flour free healthy gravy!

Did I mention it’s super delish?  The other good news is that although I used chicken broth to make this gravy, you certainly don’t have to use it.  You can absolutely substitute chicken for beef or turkey.  For vegan options, use either vegetable or mushroom stock!

This delish recipe is found on page 42 of my recently published cookbook, Healthy Holidays with the Unconventional Foodie.  It is one of 52 amazing, full-color recipes that you are sure to LOVE!  You can pick up the book HERE.
