Basic Fat Free Gravy

Basic Fat Free Gravy created by PaulaG

Several years ago, DH was in the hospital with a heart condition and was placed on a fat restricted diet. This recipe was provided by the hospital and I have used it since to make wonderful gravy, especially at Thanksgiving and Christmas. Browning the flour is the key to rich fat-free gravy

    Made for zaar tag. This was really easy to make and it turned out to be very good! I found the kitchen bouquet at my local super-walmart in the BBQ sauce aisle. This low-fat recipe is a keeper!
