Express white sauce

I think I will create a new category "why should we do complex things when it could be so simple" or "simple express cooking". I just love to invent and create shortcuts...

After the microwave zucchinis, i give to you... the express white sauce. The Bechamel kind you can pour on cauliflower and brocolis.... Not only is it quick and tasty, but there is no added fat !


250 ml of cold milk
1/2 cube of vegetable broth
2 soup spoon of corn starch (Maizena)


Boil 200 ml of the milk with the broth in a pan.
Dissolve the starch in the remaining cold milk and add the mix to the pan when it's boiling. Mix constantly until the sauce thickens. Add pepper.

There you go, it's now ready to serve !

Of course this recipe welcomes many variations. Add cheese, change to chicken broth, add herbs, etc.... and you get sauces for all circunstances.
