Free Healthy Recipe - Dairy free béchamel sauce

Dairy free

If you can't tolerate dairy and want to make a "cheesy" sauce this is a great alternative.
The miso gives the sauce the salty flavour that cheese provides and the oat milk adds to the texture of the sauce. It's no cheese sauce but it does work perfectly in a lasagna.

1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp wheat flour
500 ml oat milk
½ tsp nutmeg
1 pinch black pepper

Heat the olive oil in a pan over a medium heat and add the flour. Stir to combine until the flour forms a smooth ball (add a little more flour if necessary).

Slowly stir in the oat milk, a little at a time, stirring continuously until the sauce is smooth.

Combine a little of the oat milk with the miso paste until it's smooth and runny and add that to the sauce. Season with white pepper.

Substitute this sauce for béchamel in traditional lasagna recipes.
