Milk Sauce/Gravy/Soup- Ten Minute Meal

Creamy Milk Sauce/Gravy/Soup/Rue (Seventh of 10 Ten Minute Meals)

 

If you learn to make a Rue it can save you money and time.  Use it anytime you would use a can of creamed soup.  It is better for your health, saves you money, and tastes great.   It will make you holiday meals the best.  Be brave.  Don’t worry if you have a few lumps the first time, it will still taste great.

If you use it in a recipe instead of a can of creamed soup, use only half of the liquid.

 

  • Melt 2 Tbs. butter or other fat in frying pan.
  • Add 2-3 Tbs. flour and brown for 1-2 minutes on medium heat.
  • Add 2 cups of a mixture of milk, water and/or broth.
  • Season with salt/pepper and spices to taste.
  • Stir until thick.
  • Turn the heat off and add 2-4 Tbs. of grated parmesan cheese.

Hamburger Gravy

Add cooked ground beef to the gravy and serve over toast, noodles, rice, or potatoes.

Veggie Gravy

  • Add steamed asparagus or other cooked vegetables and serve over toast.
  • Add some cooking water to the sauce to make the right thickness.

Creamed Soup

  •  Cook any vegetables like carrots, potatoes, broccoli, onions, etc.
  •  Drain and save the water to use to thin the soup.
  • Add the creamed sauce.
  • Add the reserved water to make the soup the right thickness.

I use it to make chicken pot pie, potato soup, stroganoff and so much more.  Let us know how you use a rue to make your meals great.

Enjoy!
