"This savory sauce dresses up any vegetable in a flavorful way," says Wendy Bohman of Howards Grove, Wisconsin. "I created the recipe when I was dieting and was sick of plain cooked vegetables. The sauce has great taste and minimal fat and calories."


  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon chicken bouillon granules
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon dried tarragon
  • Dash pepper
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons fat-free milk
  • 2 tablespoons water


  1. In a small saucepan, combine the first six ingredients. Stir in milk and water until smooth. Bring to a boil over medium heat; cook and stir for 1 minute or until thickened and bubbly. Serve over hot cooked vegetables.
