Although not a perfect dessert recipe, I use my Bechamel sauce for a number of purposes. I use it for dishes like Pasta, Pesto, Fries, Sandwich, truffles, Lasagna, salad dressing and cake dressing. Yes, it might sound a little different but, I do use it for cake dressing too. It gives the sweet flavory taste to my cake. I tried it with the rhubarb cake and it tastes just perfect.
If you use it with the veggies or pasta, it gives you a very unique gravy taste. This white sauce is cheesy and creamy which can be used in any recipe of your choice. Overall, you get a sweet, tangy and flavory taste with the Bachamel sauce. Also, with this vegan variation of Bechamel sauce, it becomes more healthy and environmental friendly.
How to Make Vegan Bechamel Sauce
I always wanted to be a part of this grand Vegan Cookie event. I was prepared for this day and so, had initially decided to prepare a completely unique kind of cookie but, then what is better than a tasty yet healthy vegan recipe to showcase my talent and give away a great push to the newly turned vegans. So, here I am, with this delicious vegan recipe that you can mix with a number of dishes to get the unique flavor to it.
- 4 Cups of Cruelty-Free Milk (Here I have used Soy Milk)
- 1/4th Cups of Vegan Butter
- 1/4th Cups of Onion Powder (For cake sauce, you can use flavored beans like vanilla beans)
- 1/4th Cups of All-Purpose Flour
- A Pinch of Ground Nutmeg
- A Pinch of Salt
- 3 Tbsp of Nutrirional Yeast (Optional)
- 1 Cups of Shredded Parmesan Cheese (Optional)
Step 1: Take a medium-sized bowl; start heating it at a medium flame on a stove top
Step 2: Add Vegan butter in the bowl and let it heat
Step 3: Once the vegan butter melts completely, add the all-purpose flour in the same bowl and whisk the flour until it all gets mixed up
Step 4: Now, lower the flame from medium to low and add a cup of soy milk and mix again
Step 5: Then, add the onion powder, nutmeg and salt to the bowl, after this, again add a cup of soy milk and now mix all the ingredients in the bowl (make sure there are no limps left)
Step 6: Now, you can add the parmesan and nutritional yeast in the bowl and stir it well
Enjoy the taste of this amazingly tasty béchamel sauce in several dishes. You can also get a thicker version of this sauce when you milk some amount of corn flour in the mixture. If you wish to have sweeter sauce than this one, then you can try out the vegan custard.
