Fat-Free Oil Substitute

Our new EVOO from Reversing Diabetes. It's been a little tricky seeing what it's good and not so helpful in. It doesn't prevent sticking when roasting, but it does help dressings stick to the greens - without oil. 

1 cup cold water
1 tablespoon low-sodium vegetarian broth powder
2 teaspoons cornstarch

Place the water in a small saucepan and whisk in the broth powder and cornstarch. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring constantly, until thickened and clear.

I make 2 cups at a time and refrigerate the extra.


  1. Ok trying to do more oil free after reading whole foods vegan momma's blog. So do you use veggie boullion and crush it or is there a brand you use to make this? Thanks.

  2. where you get the veggie powder?


Let me know what you thought if you've bitten one of my bites!
