This is an old Dutch recipe. Options have been noted for making it lighter in fat and calories. The flavor doesn't change much when making it lower fat. Nutmeg is very common in Dutch cooking. It's used to flavor vegetables and meats. You might use it lightly until you are used to the taste in this type of dish. We love it. Maggi aroma (dark liquid in a small bottle)is found in the ethnic foods isle in my supermarket. It could also be found near the gravy seasonings or condiments. If you can't find it at all, try a little soy sauce or Worcestershire, although the taste will be somewhat different.
