This sauce is another French traditional dish (that is mostly used to make « gratins ») although it is normally made with wheat flour, butter and milk. But for those who can’t have dairy nor gluten, here is a revised version of this classic French sauce.

Cooking time



  • 2 cups (500 ml) unsweetened non-dairy milk (I chose almond milk)

  • 3 Tbsp gluten-free flour (I chose whole rice flour)

  • 1 pinch nutmeg

  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Put the flour in a saucepan. Turn on the stove to medium high heat. Add a little bit of non-dairy milk while whisking with a manual whip.
  • Keep adding the milk slowly while still whisking.
  • Let the mixture cook for 20 to 25 minutes or until it thickens, whisking regularly.
  • Add the nutmeg salt and pepper to taste. And voila! You can use it for your recipe.
