1 tablespoon of flour has 9 carbs. I make white gravy with 1 tablespoon flour and 1 tablespoon butter. Cook flour a few minutes before adding 1 cup milk. Makes baked chicken much better, and we don't eat that much of the gravy.

I use a roux in gravies and sauces, in cheese fondue, and in many soups and
​stews. I also use it in my Chicken Picatta. There are times I use mashed potatoes in soups to thicken the broth instead of using a roux.

My poor daughter, now 40, grew up hearing me say over and over, "first you make a roux" and knew she'd never be a cook without that skill. She's now married with a child of her own and is a wonderful cook; whereas I rarely make a roux any more as a single person, because I have grown tired of cooking just for myself, for the most part.
