Easiest and nicest white (bechamel) sauce in the Thermomix

Easiest and nicest white (bechamel) sauce in the Thermomix

Every home cook needs a good bechamel sauce in their repertoire and should master the art of creating a good, smooth white sauce. In order to do so, you need an great whisk (this is the one I used to use) or a Thermomix!

This sauce is so versatile, it’s used in croque monsieur, lasagna, courgette gratins and is the backbone of macaroni & cheese and other pasta bakes. It is used for souffles, forms the basis for so many other sauces: cheese sauce, parsley sauce for fish and is the secret behind creamy casseroles.

Give it a go – you won’t regret it.

  1. Great recipe!
    This sauce worked beautifully well with olive oil, gf self-raising flour and Bonsoy for a vegan version. I added a little more soy milk to thin it down for lasagna top
    Thanks

  2. Great sauce. Did cheese version was perfect. Added a little extra milk to make it slightly less thick for a pasta bake sauce.

  3. Excellent – and a lifesaver! I needed a quick recipe as time had run out for an evening meal. Made the cheesy version, thinned it down with wine, and served it with spelt noodles, prawns and stir-fried courgettes. Simple, delicious and *quick*.
