White Sauce – using spelt flour

 

 

Spelt flour is an excellent alternative to wheat flour (you know how I feel about white flour).

It’s easy…. use it the same way you would white flour, but you may need to add more fluid.

  1. In a small, heavy saucepan, melt 2-4 tablespoons of butter over low heat.
  2. Blend 2-4 tablespoons of spelt  flour into the melted butter.
  3. Cook over low heat, stirring for 4-5 minutes until the mixture is crumbly. Cooking for this length of time will minimize 'flour' taste.
  4. Slowly add 1-2 cups of milk, stirring constantly (I whisk with a metal fork).
  5. Continue cooking slowly until smooth and thickened.
  6. For thin white sauce, follow the instructions above, but use 1 tablespoon of butter and 1 tablespoon of flour. Thin white sauce is used in cream soups.
  7. For thick white sauce, follow the instructions above, but use 3 tablespoons of butter and 3 tablespoons of flour. Thick white sauce is used in soufflés.
  8. For heavy white sauce, follow the instructions above, but use 4 tablespoons of butter and 4 tablespoons of flour. Heavy white sauce is used as a binder for croquettes. 

You can add mozzarella or parmesan cheese to taste.

What I use white sauce for:

  • lasagne
  • vegie bakes
  • as a pasta base to salmon, dill, capers etc
  • to cream soups
  • to add bind/ texture to vegetable, tuna and lentil patties

I don’t use white sauce more than once or twice a month… it’s like desert – it’s not something that you want to make a habit of as bribery, to disguise vegetables or flavours, but rather to add new dimensions to left over's & large cook-ups.

THIS IS GENUINE. NO SCAM. Hi! My name is Myriam Boyer. I want to tell my testimony to the whole world how this great and powerful man called great baba helped me to bring back my partner. My man left me for another lady for five years. I almost gave up until my friend advised me and introduced me to this great man whom she met on the internet. I never believed at first but she encouraged me and i tried to believe and contacted him on his email. I told and explained everything to him and he assured me that he will help me and that i should not worry too much. I believed him and i did all that he asked me to do which i did and it work perfectly and my husband came back to me begging for forgiveness. I am so happy and excited now. I discovered that when my husband came back he even loved me more than the way he used to love me before he left me. great baba opened up his eyes to see how much i love him and how much love we ought to share together as one. This is not brain washing contact great baba now on his email: Highersolutiontemple@yahoo.com
