Nannas Recipes in Four Sentences....super aromatic, tasty packets!


Home made aromatic, tasty gravy...super creamy too!

Easy, creamy and delicious over chips, sausages, chicken, meat or pastry goods.

Add 1 tsp stock powder (or 1 stock cube), 1 pinch dried garlic, 1 pinch dried onion, and a grind of pepper to 250mls of boiling water in a microwave safe jug, stirring to dissolve the stock cube.

In a separate jug or cup, combine 3 heaped tsp cornflour with 2 Tbsp cold water, stirring to a paste.

 Add the cornflour mix to microwave jug and stir well, then add a dash of milk and a dash of soy sauce to add creaminess and colour.

Microwave on HIGH for 60-90 seconds, stirring every 20-30 seconds.

Gluten free as well!

To make Pepper sauce, add green peppercorns to taste.

To make Garlic Sauce, add 3 cloves freshly crushed garlic.

For Mushroom sauce add a handful of thinly sliced fresh mushrooms.

For Diane Sauce, add one small onion that has been diced and sautéed lightly, one crushed clove of garlic, and a dash each of tomato sauce (ketchup), and Worcestshire sauce.

You're welcome.

  2. Mimi, these are such good posts. I will most certainly be trying the gravy mix. We need to keep thinking of innovative ideas all the time - exercise the little grey cells, to help keep our budgets interesting. Thank you, Lyn.

  3. Hi Mimi, thankyou for these posts. I need them. This gravy one is great. My husband likes Maggi gravy but its so expensive I hope to convert him to Mimi's Gravy. Clare
