How to make velouté sauces? Velouté sauce recipe and ingredient shared on our page.
This sauce is made with a light stock from, for example, goose, chicken, fish or vegetables. The sauce is thickened with plain flour. An egg yolk or a little cream can also be added to give a fuller and richer taste. To make about four servings of light basic sauce:
2 tbs butter
2 tbs flour
400 ml light stock
Melt the butter slowly in a saucepan.
Add the flour.
Stir and let butter and the flour sizzle together a little.
Pour in the stock, little by little, stirring all the time.
Cook the sauce for 3-5 minutes, so that it doesn’t taste of flour.
A sauce velouté is an ideal starting point for many good sauces. Here are a few suggestions for flavourings:
1-2 tbs squeezed lemons or
1-2 tbs tomato pureé or
1/2- 1 tsp curry powder (sizzle that together with the butter) or
1/2 fresh red or green pepper chopped in cubes.
Taste the sauce and add salt and pepper if necessary. Enjoy your meal!
