New Mornay Sauce

Pureed low-fat cottage cheese contributes a rich dairy flavor and Gruyère and Parmesan add nuance to a healthier take on classic Mornay sauce. Use it to entice little ones to eat their vegetables.

Serves 12

Prep Time 10 min

Total Time 10 min.

Ingredients

  • 4 teaspoons all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup nonfat milk, divided
  • 1/4 cup low-fat cottage cheese
  • 1/4 cup shredded Swiss cheese, preferably Gruyère
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon white pepper
  • 2 tablespoon freshly grated Parmesan cheese, (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon breadcrumbs, (optional)

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Stir flour and 2 tablespoons milk in a small bowl to make a smooth paste. Heat the remaining milk in a small heavy saucepan over medium heat until steaming. Whisk the flour paste into the hot milk and cook, whisking constantly, until thickened, about 1 minute. Remove from the heat and whisk in cottage cheese, Swiss cheese, salt and white pepper. Transfer the sauce to a food processor or blender and puree until smooth. Serve over steamed vegetables and top with Parmesan and breadcrumbs, if desired.
