Lighten up your holiday spread this season by cutting the flours and starches from your gravy. Onion, garlic, and fresh winter herbs make for a flavorful base in this recipe. And rather than cornstarch or flour thickening it up, ground chia blended into the broth creates a smooth and naturally creamy sauce. Great for topping mashed potatoes, vegetables, and roasted meat.
Pour the filtered water into a large jar(one with a tight-fitting lid works best).Add the chia seeds and stir well with a whisk or Mini Mixer.Allow it to sit for 3-5 minutes for the chia to plump up then stir again, making sure to scrape down the sides.
Alternatively you can place the lid on tight and shake well to mix the seeds, allowing them to sit for the same period between shaking.
Continue to mix or shake every 30 seconds until the mixture has gelled up to the perfect consistency andIt’s ready to use right away.
