Used in lasagne and pasta bakes, bechamel sauce is made with 1 tablespoon each of butter and plain flour to 1 cup of milk. For a smooth bechamel sauce, follow these steps.
Step 1: First, heat the milk – this helps it incorporate into the flour mixture in step 2. Tip: for extra flavour, add onion, herbs and spices and strain before step 2.
Step 2: Stir butter and flour over medium heat until combined, then remove from heat. Add the milk gradually, stirring constantly.
Step 3: Place over medium heat. Again, stir constantly, until thickened – this evenly distributes heat, so the sauce stays smooth.
