Easy, Quick Vegan Dinner Idea: Salad and Baked Potato with Fat-Free VEGAN Gravy!
Posted Aug 19 2009 12:00am
I've been working on a gravy made from potatoes. I feed the boy potatoes but he won't eat the peels and I hate to throw them away so I blend them with onion, garlic, a bit of salt, then cook that until it thickens. It's a tasty, fat-free gravy made from something that would normally wind up in the compost so it makes me happy on a few different levels!
Last night I had the brainstorm of adding oats and it came out pretty good.
IngredientsUse the skins and small pieces left over from cutting up a potato 1/3 cup rolled oats 1/4 med yellow onion 1 clove garlic 1 cup water or more if needed salt and pepper to taste (Optionally, you can add a tbs of olive oil but then it won't be fat free)
Everything in the blender until very, very smooth then transfer to a saucepan and cook over low-med heat, stirring constantly gravy-like thickness is achieved. The longer you heat it, the thicker it will become. You can add more water if it gets too thick.
