A lot of people say they have trouble getting a beschamel, but with this method, I’ve never had a problem.
1 cube butter
1 T. flour
1 c. milk
Salt and pepper to taste
Cheese (optional) – Parmesan, Monterey jack, mozzarella, or anything the melts well
Melt the butter slowly in a saucepan. Add the flour and whisk until smooth and incorporated. Cook the sauce on low heat for a few minutes, always whisking.
Add the milk and continue stirring until it begins to thicken. Season with salt and pepper. Voila! Done!
Carrots are comfort food for me – I’m not really sure why since I didn’t eat that much of them when I was little, but for some reason, the taste brings me back to my childhood. This is a little twist on regular boiled carrots – and, I think, just adds to their already sweet goodness.
Carrots – peeled and cut into 1/2″ pieces
Boil the carrots in some salted water until soft.
Melt the butter in a pan. Add the sage leaves and cook until the butter begins to brown.
Drain the carrots and add them to the pan with the butter. Mix them well.
