Gravy can really make or break your meal – but if you are trying to eat a low sodium diet, it can be hard to make a good one! To make sure it’s not lacking in flavor, herbs like sage and thyme can be added. You will not miss the salt in this one!

To make this recipe, you only need five ingredients. Unsalted butter, flour, low sodium chicken or turkey broth, fresh sage, and fresh thyme combine to make a delicious herb gravy that you’ll love. It’s quite a simple procedure – melt the butter in a small pot, whisk in the flour, and heat until it’s golden brown. At this point, pour in the broth while whisking and then add the herbs, cooking until thick. That’s it!

You can store this gravy in the fridge for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 3 months. If it’s too thick upon reheating, you can add a bit of broth or water to loosen it.
