Mushroom Gravy

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Here’s a recipe for one of my favorite Gravies, Mushroom Gravy. To make this Gravy you’ll be needing Canola Oil, fresh Mushrooms, Garlic, Turkey Gravy, Parsley, Dry Sherry, and Chicken Broth. There’s 18 calories and 1 net carb per serving. The recipe is from the Diabetes Self Management website where you can find a huge selection of Diabetic Friendly Recipes, Diabetes News, Diabetes Management Tips, and more!

Mushroom Gravy
There’s no need to buy prepackaged versions — this quick and easy homemade gravy requires just a few ingredients and some simple steps. A perfect complement to your

mashed potatoes or main course!

Ingredients
2 teaspoons canola oil
4 ounces sliced fresh mushrooms*
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 can (10 1/2 ounces) turkey gravy**
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
1 tablespoon dry sherry (optional)
1/4 cup water or chicken broth

Directions
Yield: 10 servings
Serving size: 2 tablespoons

1 – Heat oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms. Cook 6 minutes, or until lightly browned, stirring frequently. Add garlic; cook 15 seconds. Add gravy; cook until heated through, stirring frequently. Stir in parsley and sherry, if desired. Thin with water, if necessary.

*Tip: Fresh mushrooms are best to use in this recipe because canned mushrooms would add sodium in addition to the sodium already found in prepared gravy.

**Note: Using prepared gravy is an easy way to help control fat, sodium, and carb intake, especially during the food-heavy holiday season. With canned gravy, you know exactly what the nutrients are per serving size, something you can only guess with homemade gravy. An appropriate diabetic or heart-healthy serving of gravy is 2 tablespoons.
