The technology of preparation of this sauce I had seen "French food at home" (French Food at Home with Laura Calder). I wanted the recipe "Bechamel" was always at hand, so I began to search for its counterpart on the "Cook". After reviewing many options and variations and not finding one that would suit me, dared to add a recipe from the transfer "personal use" and to the public :)

Ingredients for Sauce "Bechamel"

Step by step instruction of cooking Sauce "Bechamel"

Шаг 1

In warm milk put half onion, a clove of garlic and a Bay leaf.

Шаг 2

Bring to a boil, remove from heat, give the milk to cool and "brew" for 10 minutes. After that seasonings can be removed.

Шаг 3

In a saucepan melt the butter. When it starts to boil, add the flour and stirring constantly, boil for 1 minute. So it turns out "ru" - flour, fried in butter. If you cook longer, you get a "brown Roux," it is more flavorful, but for the white sauce and Roux should be white :)

Шаг 4

Ready "ru" while stirring slowly pour in the milk and a few minutes to hold on low heat, again stirring - the sauce begins to thicken evenly, without lumps.
Thickened the sauce with salt and pepper. Ready! Can be safely added to various dishes: baked macaroni and cheese, stews, even simple buckwheat will not look so obvious :)
