Cheaper, tastier and healthier

Profit margin is number one among factory directors. If you use oil in a sauce yourself, always use organic oils because these are not only organic but also unprocessed, which means that they do not contain trans fats.

It is better to make it from organic raw milk, butter and whole wheat flour or any other whole grain flour. Finish the béchamel sauce with a pinch of pepper and himalayan salt. This is the basis on which to vary endlessly. Add a little more cream and you have a cream sauce. Use extra parsley, and you have a parsley sauce. You can use all green herbs to make a sauce. Many spices are also eligible. The béchamel sauce in its purest form is used as a traditional cauliflower sauce.

Mushroom sauce

  1. Fry mushrooms with an onion and a clove of garlic. When the mushrooms are cooked, put it all in the blender together with cream and a tablespoon of wheat flour or other full flour such as teff flour.

The carrot is a bit sweet and that taste cancels out the tartness of the tomatoes.

Pepper sauce

  1. To make a pepper sauce you first make a béchamel sauce. You put a pan of water on the fire and add wholemeal wheat flour or, if desired, another type of organic flour.

Now you can choose to make the sambal extra tasty and a bit milder. Tomato is a widely used remedy. One agent that really helps to soften the sauce is sugar.
