A classic bechamel sauce can add a cheesy flavour to any recipe. It’s super versatile and a classic sauce. I’m going to teach you how to make bechamel vegan!



For the Bechamel:

3 heaped tbsp. of vegan butter

3 tbsp. all-purpose flour

2 tbsp. nutritional yeast

2 1/2 cups almond milk

season to taste

1/2 tsp Mountain Rose Herbs Nutmeg, grated


For the bechamel, melt your butter on low heat in a medium-sized pot.  Once melted, add your flour, stir till a ball or more lumpy consistency appears.  Add your nutritional yeast and stir more.  Now, slowly add your milk and whisk aggressively while cooking on medium-high heat (the whole proces should take around 20 minutes).  Stir till you’ve added all your milk and a more silky smooth sauce comes together.  Add the nutmeg and stir even more!  At the last minute season to taste, remove from heat and set aside.


To make sure you use good quality ingredients, seriously though, that nutmeg 😉

Use a heavy-bottomed saucepan to help prevent sticking

Whisk and whisk until your arms fall off – this will help you achieve that perfect silky smooth consistency

I highly suggest doubling this serving size, the sauce is just that good!
