Call in to speak with the host
Thanksgiving may be the most popular day of the year for family gatherings, but it’s not always the healthiest. Traditional holiday gravy, for example, runs upwards of 500 calories per serving. To reduce that gut-busting number by about 80 percent, Chef JoAnna Minneci—whose celebrity clients include Modern Family star Julie Bowen and Devious Maids star Roselyn Sánchez—has a simple yet delicious solution. “Take regular button mushrooms and cook them in a little vegetable oil until they’re very soft. Then blend the mushrooms with some flour and vegetable stock. Then put it back in the pan to let the flour thicken,” she tells Chefs Line host Jenn Beisser. Stuffing, too, can be madeover as a healthy dish. “Add diced green apples, grated carrots or celery, which will increase the bulk without adding many calories,” says Chef JoAnna. “And use a vegetable stock instead of the pan drippings, to moisten the stuffing.”
