Gravy with your Weight Loss

Vegetarian Gravy
3 cups water
1/4 cup minced onion
3 Tbsp. mushrooms, finely diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1-1/2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
4 Tbsp. whole-wheat flour
3 tsp. parsley, minced
3 tsp. olive oil
Pepper to taste

In a skillet, sauté onion, mushrooms, and garlic in 1/2 of the olive oil for a couple of minutes, and then transfer them to a bowl. Add the remaining oil and stir the flour into the skillet; continue to stir until the flour browns. Next, add the water and whisk until it starts to boil; then add Worcestershire sauce and allow mixture to thicken (about 5 minutes in total). Add in the onion, mushrooms, and garlic and cook for 1 minute more, and then remove from heat. Tip: if gravy is too thick, slowly stir in more warm water to make it thinner. Makes 12 to 14 servings. Perfect for your weight loss routine and P90x routine.
