Non-Dairy White Sauce

Non-Dairy Almond Milk White Sauce

This post is quite exciting for me as I love white sauce, but since I’m allergic to dairy, cannot have it without nasty side-effects. I really wanted pasta with white sauce for lunch, so I started thinking of alternates. What can I used instead of cow’s milk? The rest of the family doesn’t like goat’s milk, so I had my work cut out for me. A few months ago, I tried using rice milk unsuccessfuly, but have been recently using Blue Diamons Almond – Almond Breeze – Original in my cereal and have been enjoying it. So I thought, why not white sauce???

It worked! Best part is, a basic dairy milk white sauce recipe works with just a bit more salt. I upped it from 1/4 tsp salt per 1 cup “milk”, to 3/8 tsp salt to 1 cup “milk”

So, here’s my variation, using almond milk & a more salt.

Non-Dairy White Sauce for Pasta

Thin White Sauce:

1 tbsp. butter
1 tbsp. flour
3/8 tsp. salt
1 c. milk

Medium Thickness Sauce:

2 tbsp. butter
2 tbsp. flour
3/8 tsp. salt
1 c. milk

Other Ingredients:

Oregano and or spike
Parmesan cheese
Sour cream
Salt and pepper
Garlic salt or powder


In saucepan melt butter. Stir in flour, salt and dash pepper. Add milk all at once. Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir 2 minutes more.
Make basic white sauce thin or medium. Add the other ingredients. Cook veggies like (mushrooms, broccoli, cauliflower, bell tomatoes, red peppers) etc. or cook seafood (in wok) works well.

Add to white sauce seafood or veggies and serve over pasta.
