Dairy-Free Bechamel Sauce (AKA Cauliflower & Leek Soup!) in the Thermomix
You can imagine my delight when tasting a newly made Cauliflower and Leek Soup for the first time, that a thought popped into my head… “Hey! This could taste like Bechamel Sauce!” You know, that creamy sauce that you put through lasagnes? Well, let me tell you, it has been SOME TIME since I tasted that.
This was featured as a free recipe on the T4B blog - Bec also used it to make a vegetable lasagne in Episode 12 of the podcast.
