Eating clean is something that takes time week 1 you majorly amped but just before the 21 day mark you close to calling quits.
While yes I don't take things totally off my list I do try to find a healthier alternative and that helps. I never like being deprived from anything. I'm a Taurus, comfort, luxury and indulgence is my DNA. So my question to myself was how on earth can I enjoy the comfort of pasta smothered in white sauce....
While making my own oat flour for my pancakes it dawned on me lets just see what will actually happen if I treat it as a bechamel sauce, oat flour a dollop of butter and coconut milk.
The end result was amazing.
As you an see I didn't title this post as a bechamel sauce because it's not and I add spices, garlic and honey. It's my perfect combination for my taste. However you can forgo all the extras and season however you like the base of the sauce is there for you to add your personal touch.
- 1/2 cup milk of choice, dairy free or not .
- 1/4 cup oat flour
- Tiny knob of butter.
- Black pepper
Optional ingredients :
- Cayenne pepper (tiny bit goes a long way)
- Dried basil
As you can see be creative and find what works for you as far as seasoning goes.
- Add nob of butter to pan and let it melt
- Once melted add your oat flour and combine
- Add Milk
- The consistency should be gravy like if it's not add more milk to thin it or oat flour to thicken it.
- Season as desired.
The idea behind this is to create something healthier so you never feel deprived like ever. Add this sauce over chicken, steak or as I enjoy it over whole wheat pasta.
Let me know if you will be giving this a try... id love to know.
