Biscuits and Gravy: My #1 go-to choice at any breakfast restaurant. And also 5000% of my daily calorie intake. Okay, maybe that’s an exaggeration but let’s just say fitting Biscuits and Gravy into your macros is not exactly a wise choice unless you plan on eating only egg whites and broccoli the rest of the day.
Luckily, I have created a healthy, low fat gravy recipe that can be enjoyed any day of the week and even if you are on a strict diet! This gravy honestly tastes like the real deal without the added lethargy and guilt.
One 1/2 cup serving is only 80 calories, 10g protein, 3.2g fat and 2.2g carbs!
These go great with my healthy Sweet Potato Biscuits or if you just want to eat a bowl of sausage gravy by itself, that is perfectly acceptable too (That’s what I did for lunch today)!
To start, mix ground turkey with seasoning and egg whites. I have found that adding in egg whites will get rid of that “dry” turkey flavor common from using meat with little fat. You may also use lean ground beef, if desired!
Add 1 tbsp olive oil to skillet and cook turkey on medium high heat. Once turkey is cooked thoroughly, remove with a slotted spoon and set aside.
Pour 1 tbsp olive oil on skillet and mix with 1/4 cup oat flour. Gradually stir in 3 cups almond milk (make sure it is original, not vanilla!). Season with more salt and pepper, if desired. Bring to a boil then simmer for about 10 minutes. Add 1-2 tbsp cornstarch to thicken if needed.
Stir in ground turkey and serve warm over biscuits, potatoes, rice, or any of your favorite foods (I’d love to see your ideas!)
