Sioux's Soychamel Sauce

My version of Bechamel Sauce has so many uses!

I mix it with cooked carrots and edamame and pour over my "Can Do Biscuits" for a mock potpie.

I mix it with cooked veggies and rice and bake it with some GF bread crumbs.

It also tops GF pizza dough nicely for cheese alternative.  Soychemel and olives on GF pizza dough is good stuff!  Pizza dough recipe to follow and photos of my GF, vegan pizza posted tomorrow!

Soychamel (this is a physical task and takes some time- lots of whisking)

5 tablespoons margarine
4 tablespoons GF baking mix
4 cups Original Silk Soy Milk
1/2 sea salt
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

In medium pan on medium-high heat, whisk and melt margarine and GF baking mix together.  Constantly whisk until mixture is slightly golden, just toasty, not brown.  You will be whisking A LOT and may need to lift the pan off the heat to stop the toasty look from going to browned.

Add the Silk and whisk and whisk and whisk until it thickens.  It may take a good 40 minutes or longer.  When it starts to make big bubbles lower the heat a little.  Constantly whisk and scrape bottom and sides of pan.  Remove from heat when it is thickened to your liking.  Add salt and nutmeg.

I often make half a recipe which works just fine.  It does take a looooong time but when you cannot use commercial "cream of..." soups, this can make good comfort food!

Don't forget to look tomorrow for pizza photos!
