Dear Cancer Project supporter,

This gravy is low in fat and takes just minutes to prepare. Serve it with No-Meat Loaf (February 11), and green beans for a wonderfully traditional meal.


Makes 1 1/2 cups

1 1/2 cups water
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons raw cashews
1 tablespoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
4 teaspoons potato flour

Combine all ingredients in a blender and process until completely smooth. Transfer to a saucepan and bring to a simmer, stirring constantly. Remove from heat.
