Bechamel sauce

(Recipe adapted from the one in this post)

I have never made a bechamel sauce before so I don’t know exactly how hard it is to achieve a good texture without using the Thermomix. But I gotta say, the end product I got was pretty much perfect, and all I had to do was press a couple of buttons! I had actually read somewhere that upping the quantity of butter in the original EDC recipe gets rid of the floury taste, and I’m always game for more butter in anything so I was only too happy to use that tip.

Ingredients

1lt milk
100g flour
100g butter
Pinch of salt

Method

– Place butter in TMX bowl and melt for 1 min/90 degrees/speed 1.
– Add flour, milk and salt, and cook for 12 mins/90 degrees/speed 4. Done!

I made a bolognese sauce in the TMX earlier in the day and made a lasagna later in the week. Bliss.
