🥕 Velouté


🍽 Serves ⏲ Total Time
1.75 cup 30 minutes

🧂 Ingredients

🍳 Cookware

  • 1 medium saucepan
  • 🥄 1 spoon
  • 🗑 1 fine-mesh sieve

📝 Instructions

Step 1

Make a heavy blond roux.

Step 2

Remove the medium saucepan from the heat and slowly whisk in 2.5 cup of vegetable broth along with minced mushrooms.

Step 3

Return the saucepan to the heat and bring the sauce slowly to a simmer, whisking to prevent lumps. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring often and skimming any skin that forms on the surface, until thick enough to coat the back of a spoon, about 20 minutes. Do not boil.

Step 4

Strain through a fine-mesh sieve, if desired.

Step 5

Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Step 6

Just before serving, whisk in softened unsalted butter or any flavored butter.
