WFMW: Heathly Eating - Low Fat Gravy

When I first started doing a Weight-Watchers-wannabe program that used something like the Points system, I found this and was thrilled to see that it was only 1 point for 1/4 cup!

Low-Fat Gravy

1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1/2 cup finely chopped fresh mushrooms
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
2 cups reduced-sodium fat-free beef or chicken broth, divided
2 tablespoons cornstarch
Pinch pepper

In a saucepan, saute onion, mushrooms and parsley in 1/4 cup broth until vegetables are tender. Combine cornstarch, pepper and 1/2 cup of broth; stir until smooth. Add to pan with the remaining broth. Bring to boil, stirring occasionally; boil for 2 minutes. Yield: 2 cups.

Nutritional Analysis: One 1/4-cup serving equals 19 calories, 1 g fat (0 saturated fat), 2 mg cholesterol, 28 mg sodium, 3 g carbohydrate, 0 fiber, 1 g protein. Diabetic Exchanges: 1 Free Food.

Hey,this sounds delicious to be low fat. I need to buy some cornstarch. I
thought about entering the wfmw, but didn't get around to it. I have a recipe for "ice cream sandwiches" they are great! lol
