Helpful hints

  • Use this gravy instead of canned cream soup, as the sodium content is much lower. Change the flavor by adding various herbs and spices.

White Gravy for Casseroles or Pot Pies
queengc says:

I use this recipe to make chicken pot pie but had to use unsalted butter because I cannot find unsalted margarine. What company make it? Dietitian comment: Use the unsalted butter. There's been a big change in margarines over the past few years due to the trans fat content.

I live in a small town and i can't find nondairy creamer that does not have a flavor added. Where can i find unflavored creamers? Dietitian comment: You could substitute rice milk or almond milk without phosphate additives.

I have been using cream of mushroom or chicken and feeling guilty because of salt. No more! and i'm going to try it over steak.

I made this gravy to accompany chicken breasts. My husband thought it was the best thing I have made in more than 30 years, Renal diet or before ESRD. I've made it for other foods as well. Always a hit!!

I don't use celery and use 50/50 rice milk and non-dairy creamer and it works well.

I used this recipe to redo a casserole my son loved growing up. I tripled it , and i used Coffee Rich , which requires dilution with water. Instead of the water , i added chicken broth to simulate cream of chicken soup. It worked like a charm. Even non ESRD eaters liked it !

Using all 6 portions only gives 15 tablespoons ... not enough for any casserole or pot pie.
