Supper in a Hurry

Some days are busier than others.
Although I have my menu-by-the-month plan,
there are days when I want something made lickity-split.
This is one of my go-to dishes
when I'm almost due at work and
Big K is just walking in the door.
It can be very versatile, depending on your likes.
We serve it over rice or pasta,
or even over homemade rolls.

2 C frozen veggies (we used peas & carrots)
1/2 yellow onion, minced
1 t salt
1 t poultry seasoning
1 1/2 T flour
1/2 C veggie broth (or chicken broth)
2 cans albacore tuna (or chicken)

Sautee onion in a skillet 5 minutes with olive oil. 
Add veggies and seasonings, cook until tender.
Add flour and stir 1 minute.
Add veggie broth and stir until gravy
is the desired thickness.
Mix in tuna.

*For a gluten-free version,
just add gf flour mix instead of all-purpose flour.

Love those one-pot wonders!

Brown gravy is made using homemade chicken
(or veggie) stock
and a bit of flour (or gf flour mix) cooked with the veggies.

Next time you're in a hurry to put supper on,
use this delicious and easy go-to stew.
