I tried to work out a few Sauce & Gravy recipes in order to CUT some of those nasty fat calories! Here are two basic ones.
* For a fast creamy gravy, mix 1 single serving size instant creamy soup mix with 1 tablespoon cornstarch in a small saucepan. Then stir in 1 cup evaporated skim milk. Cook and stir until thickened & bubbly. Cook & stir for 2 minutes more. This recipe makes 1 cup; 4 servings. Only 68 calories for each 1/4 cup...1 g of fat!
* This quick sauce can be used to top veggies, fish, chicken or whatever you like! Mix 1 can (10 3/4 ounces) reduced fat condensed cream of celery, mushroom or chicken soup, 1/4 cup evaporated skim milk and 1 teaspoon of a dried herb - such as basil, dill or tarragon - in a small saucepan. Heat and serve. Makes 1 1/2 cups; 6 servings. Per 1/4 cup: 35 calories, 1 g. of fat!
Play around with these....but you get the low-fat idea. Enjoy.
