“I have not tried this yet, however it took me forever to figure out the recipe for this so I am saving it. I plan on using this for a vegetable lasagna so reserve the cooked vegetables.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Peel and finely chop the vegetables. Add the vegetables, spices and milk to a sauce pan. Bring to a boil, cover and remove from heat. Allow flavors to infuse for 30 minutes.
  2. Over low heat, melt the butter in a saucepan, remove from heat and stir in flour. Return to heat and cook roux for 1-2 minutes, stirring constantly.
  3. Reheat flavored milk to almost boiling and strain hot milk into bowl with a spout (like a 2 cup glass measuring cup) pressing against vegetables to extract their juices. (Reserve vegetables for pasta).
