3. Healthy Velouté Sauce 

This classic white sauce is one of the celebrated French chef Auguste Escoffier’s five ‘mother sauces’ that can be served on their own or used as a base for other sauces. 

This sauce can be made with BONE BROTH Grandma’s Chicken Soup Flavor. 

Velouté is simple to make, starting with the roux and bone broth. For a healthier version, our recipe involves BONE BROTH Grandma’s Chicken Soup Flavor and quinoa flour or rice flour for the roux, to make a gluten-free version. 

Ingredients

Instructions

Heat the butter in a pan over a low heat until melted. Take the pan off the heat and stir in the flour with a wooden spoon until combined. Then return the pan to the heat and keep stirring for 2 minutes until smooth. 

When you get a pale golden paste that smells toasted you can increase the heat to medium and add about one-third of the bone broth. Whisk until combined with no lumps. Add some more of the bone broth and whisk well, then beat in the remaining broth until smooth. 

Reduce the heat to very low and simmer gently for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until thickened and smooth. Season to taste and then serve it with your traditional Easter recipe. Bon Apetit!
