Fatless White Sauce
Okay, so you don't get the buttery flavour, but you do get a lovely, creamy-smooth, milky white sauce which is most helpful for those needing to cut the fat content of their diet.
This recipe is from Delia's Complete How to Cook. Makes about 10 fl oz (275 ml)
All you do to make this sauce is place the milk in a small saucepan, then simply add the sauce flour and, over a medium heat, bring everything gradually up to simmering point, whisking vigorously and continuously with a balloon whisk until the sauce has thickened to a smooth, rich creaminess.
Then add seasoning and allow it to cook very gently for 5 minutes on the lowest possible heat.
