GF/DF Bechamel Sauce

A gluten-free & dairy-free version
of the classic French white sauce


Just because you have to be gluten and dairy free doesn't mean you can't enjoy a good creamy sauce. 

Try this version of the classic French white sauce, called "bechamel", which is 100% gluten and dairy free.


  • 1 Tbsp vegan margarine

  • 1 Tbsp gluten-free 1-to-1 flour blend

  • 1 cup gluten-free oat milk (If you can't find it at the store, you can make your own. (Click here for the recipe.)

  • 1/2 to 1 tsp salt

  • pinch of nutmeg


In a small saucepan, melt the margarine over medium-high heat. 

Add flour and whisk vigorously to make a paste. Turn the heat down to low.

Gradually add the oat milk, a little at a time, whisking well after each addition.

Stir in the salt and nutmeg. Adjust seasonings to taste. 

This recipe makes about 1 cup of bechamel sauce. This recipe is easily doubled, if desired.
