Can you prepare a béchamel without milk? The answer is yes, and it's as delicious as the real thing.
Time 20 Minutes
Heat the olive oil over medium-low temperature, without letting it smoke, and carefully add the flour or cornstarch, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon, to form a thick paste.
Just as the sauce thickens, start pouring the vegetable drink little by little and stirring constantly. Keep cooking at low heat so that the sauce does not burn or boil, and continue adding the vegetable milk until you get the required consistency. If you need the bechamel for croquettes, it will have to be thicker than for a pasta sauce.
Add salt, black pepper and freshly grated nutmeg to taste. Enjoy!
