    Hi, I'm having a late tea & fancy some gravy with it, I seen a while bk that you can make a syn free gravy with oxo cubes & water & to thickening it up use Mr mash, I was just wondering if I did that would it be syn free & also if anyone has tried it is it nice? Thank u xx

    Hi, I made it last night 2 oxo cubes with water then added Mr mash to thickening it up, it was soooooo nice. I love gravy & now I can have it & if oxo cubes are syn free & Mr mash is free then so is the gravy :) xx

    I used 2 oxo cubes in a mug and then add the Mr mash to thickening up to my liking, had it last night & I'm currently having it now with boiled potatoes, vedge & lamb shank, lovely jubbly :) it may look quite thick in the mug but once poured its not & its very rich & beef xx

    A way to make it even more tasty is do do exactly what you did, but also fry some onions in frylight too. Add them to your gravy and blitz with a hand blender. Makes it really tasty!
