Expert Tips

"C" the flavor! Bake up an excellent source of vitamin C that's good for healthy gums, blood vessels and tissues.

This basic cheese sauce is easy to make and can be used on a variety of vegetables. The flour is cooked in the margarine until smooth and bubbly before the milk is added. This step along with additional cooking, prevents the finished sauce from tasting like raw flour. A wire whisk helps keep the sauce smooth, but a spoon can also be used for stirring.
