Low Fat White Sauce

Several recipes call for a white sauce, which is flour added to melted butter, then thickened with milk. I'm trying to cut down of our fat grams, so this is a way to cut out some butter and still have a great tasting white sauce.


Instead of adding the flour to the melted butter, start by heating up the milk in a pan with just a tiny slice of butter. In a small container, shake up flour with a little cold milk or cold water. When smooth, gradually stir into the hot, simmering milk. Stir until sauce is the consistency you desire. Add salt and pepper to taste.

There, now you have a delicious white sauce without all those fat grams!

Like you, I'm also working to minimize my daily fat intake. Thanks for the process pointer! I use water in place of milk and no butter whatsoever. A little nutritional yeast and a pinch of garlic powder add abundant flavour.

This sounds like something new to try - with or without all the butter.

I use just a small amount of butter, not nearly what the regular amount would be so that saves fat grams. Thanks for your reply!
