Ingredients for Basic White Sauce with Milk (Bechamel) Recipe

1 c Nonfat milk
sm Piece of onion (about 1

1/8 ts White pepper
2 tb Instant nonfat dry milk
1 tb Cornstarch or arrowroot

Basic White Sauce with Milk (Bechamel) Preparation

In a small saucepan combine milk, onion, carrot, nutmeg and pepper. Bring to a boil, then cover, remove from heat and allow to steep for ten minutes. Pour the warm milk through a strainer, pressing down on the vegetables to obtain all the juices. Let cool. Combine dry milk, cornstarch or arrowroot and flour. Add one or two TAB cooled milk to the dry mixture and stir to a smooth paste. Return the milk to the saucepan, add the flour paste and stir over medium heat until mixture boils and thickens. If sauce will not be used immediately, cover and refrigerate. Cold sauce will thicken; thin with a little flavored cooking juice, wine or stock. Makes about 1 cup; recipe is easily doubled. VVegetables steeped in hot milk add flavor to this versatile sauce, which can replace the butter-flour-milk white sauce in any of your recipes. It also forms the base of a salt-free cheese sauce that in its turn can dress vegetables, open-fac sandwiches, macaroni or baked potatoes. From Gemini’s MASSIVE MealMaster collection at
