This gluten free vegan bechamel sauce is ready in a few minutes and it’s perfect to make your gluten free savory dishes even richer and tastier!

Course: First dish, Main Course, Sauces
Keyword: bechamel, dairy free, gluten free, lactose free, vegan, white sauce
  • 40 gr margarine / vegan butter
  • 50 gr gluten free starch (potato, corn, rice, other)
  • 500 gr plant based, gluten free milk (sugar free, unflavoured)
  • black pepper (optional)
  1. Put a non sticking pan over low/medium heat, add the margarine and the starch and while the margarine starts to melt, whisk everything until you have a semi solid batter

  2. add a third of the milk and whisk pretty fast, so that the batter melts and no clumps form

  3. add the rest of the milk and keep whisking until you have a smooth batter

  4. add a pinch of salt and nutmeg powder and mix

  5. taste the sauce and if needed adjust with more salt and nutmeg, according to your taste

  6. keep mixing the bechamel, it will slowly get thicker and it will be ready when the sauce is thick and creamy

  7. if some small clumps have formed it’s ok, if you will use the sauce for baked dishes the clumps will melt and you won’t notice them

  8. you can also add a pinch of black pepper if you like
