Healthy Biscuits and Gravy!
I talked so much about our beloved Greek yogurt in my last post that it's only natural I share our recipe for Greek yogurt biscuits in this post! Biscuits and gravy are a staple back home down South. I do believe I have posted our standby classic recipe here already... This morning, however, Zach suggested we try to create a light, healthful, vegetarian version - viola!
Green Onion Biscuits with Veg Gravy
2.5 cups white whole wheat flour
5 tsps baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup fat free Greek yogurt
4 green onions, green and white parts minced
1 cup almond milk
12 oz vegetarian "sausage" patties, chopped
1 T olive oil
2.5 cups vegetable broth
1/4 cup gravy mix or flour
To make the biscuits, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt.
Stir in the green onions.
Whisk together the wet ingredients, then fold them into the dry.
Use an ice cream scoop to portion the dough onto greased baking sheets.
Bake at 400 degrees F for 12 minutes.
While the biscuits are baking, make the gravy. Brown the veg "sausage" in the olive oil, then quickly whisk in the broth and gravy mix or flour. Continue to whisk over medium heat until thickened, adding more broth or gravy mix/flour as you feel necessary to create the right texture. Serve warm, over the lovely biscuits!
