Another Reason to Love Veggies

I think we've found the easiest, most tasty, and guilt-free gravy out there! After you pull your roast from the oven, pour or ladle off a good portion of the roast juices into a blender and add a bunch of the veggies. Blend well, add seasonings if needed, and more broth/veggies depending on the consistency you want.

Easy veggie gravy, and it's so, so good. Plus, when making soup with the chopped up roast leftovers, just add broth, some cooked barley, peas, salt, thyme, and the rest of the gravy. Serve with warm rolls or cornbread. Two meals in one!

What are your favorite low-effort recipes or tricks for turning out multiple meals in one fell swoop? I so want to know!


  1. Anna, I am PUMPED about trying this. Oh. Yum.

    We had your roasted chicken last night. Pan licking wonderful! It remains my favorite dish out there!

  2. Awesome! Why have I never thought of adding veggies to the gravy--healthy and added consistency!

  3. Sounds delish!! I will give it a try.

  4. Oh yum! That's right up my alley...and such a good idea. Thank you for sharing. :)

  5. Oh, I love this idea! We're not huge gravy eaters but I think this recipe would be a hit.

    Right now my low-effort recipes are cereal and oatmeal... perhaps I'll get back to cooking someday!
