Also known as bechamel sauce

Baby  Food Ingredients:

½ onion, sliced                                                   
handful fresh flat-leaf parsley stalks, chopped
20 peppercorns
½ tsp freshly grated nutmeg
850ml whole milk
80g unsalted butter
40g plain flour


Put the onion, parsley stalks, peppercorns, grated nutmeg and milk in a large saucepan. Gently heat to simmering point, being careful not to let it boil, then remove from the hob and leave to infuse until the milk is cold.
Strain the milk into a clean saucepan, discarding the solids, then add the low-fat spread and flour. Gradually bring the sauce to simmering point, whisking continuously to create a smooth sauce. Continue to cook for 5-10 minutes until the sauce has thickened. Your base white sauce is now ready to transform into a range of other dishes.


Also known as bechamel sauce, it can be used in anything from lasagne to macaroni cheese. This recipe makes about 850ml.
