Good for You Gravy

For more nutrition, I use bean liquid remaining after cooking beans to replace water when making gravy. I use 2 Tbsp. butter, 2 Tbsp. flour, and 1 1/2 to 2 cups bean liquid. In pan stir flour into melted butter, cook til bubbly - the browner the better. Add bean liquid slowly and keep stirring until thickened.

I have found that using the water from boiling potatoes gives gravy a wonderful flavor. There may even be some things that are good for you in the potato water, too!
