1. Ramblings

Thanksgiving is right around the corner and if you belong to the 95% of US Americans who just need to have your turkey, use this low fat recipe to indulge and still stick to your diet plan.

By the way, not the turkey is the "bad food", it actually is quite lean, but usually the stuffing and the gravy are full of fat and calories. Use this healthy and low fat gravy recipe for full flavor and a good consciousness :-)

Enjoy!


2. Low Fat Thanksgiving Turkey Gravy

Don't be afraid to pour lots of this delicious gravy over your holiday turkey, it's full of flavor but low in fat.

Ingredients

  • Pan juices from turkey
  • 1/4 cup (60g) flour
  • 4 cups (1l) fat free chicken broth
  • 4 tablespoons red wine
  • ground black pepper to taste

Directions
Strain the pan drippings from your Thanksgiving turkey and pour into a gravy separator.

Place roasting pan on stove top over medium heat.

Sprinkle flour into pan and stir until golden brown. Reduce heat to low.

Return drippings to pan (the fat is now in the separator and will not be used), add chicken broth and wine.

Stir with a whisk until blended.

Turn heat back up to medium and cook, stirring constantly, until gravy thickens.

Season with black pepper if desired. Pour into a gravy boat, ready to serve

Enjoy!

Makes 4 cups
