Bechamel sauce

Bechamel sauce

La Bechamel sauce It is a very versatile sauce and it is used in many recipes, vegetables or gratin pasta, cannelloni or lasagna and a long etcetera. Not long ago I shared with you one of my recipes for Homemade cannelloni And today I explain how I prepare the bechamel for that recipe.

We already know that nowadays it is very easy to use the supermarket packaged bechamel, but I also assure you that it is very easy to prepare a bechamel while, for example, the vegetables or pasta are cooked.

Two key points to get a good béchamel is to make sure the flour cooks well so it doesn't taste like raw flour and another is to add hot milk to minimize the formation of lumps. I take the opportunity to heat it in the microwave while I toast the flour with the butter. If you want you can also flavor the milk with a bay leaf or a little onion and heat it in a container over the fire.
