How to make gluten free bechamel in a simple way

For many people, it is difficult to make the traditional béchamel sauce. Not because the recipe is complicated or they have to apply our advice to make a béchamel without lumps, but because when suffering from celiac disease to a greater or lesser degree they cannot use wheat flour.

How to make gluten-free béchamel with komeko rice flour

Difficulty: Easy
  • Total time 20 m
  • Elaboration 5m
  • Cooking 15 m

To make the bechamel, we weigh the ingredients and measure the same amount of butter as komeko flour. Melt the butter in the pan and add the flour, sliding it into the fat until it forms a cream or roux.

We add the milk little by little, stirring well and little by little the lumps of the roux melt into the milk, obtaining a very rich flavor and texture béchamel, in which we have not used wheat flour.

When it is at the point of thickness that we have looked for, we taste and rectify the salt and pepper and we give it a little sprinkle with nutmeg, as is traditional in the usual bechamel sauce. If we are going to keep it, it is advisable to put a kitchen film well glued to prevent it from forming a crust.
