08:20 pm - A healthier cheese sauce for veggies
I wanted to share this with readers who eat cheese and like cheese sauce on vegetables.
Most cheese sauces require a base of:
white flour, butter and milk,
to make the cheese saucy and not stringy.

I've learned to replace them with:
Garbanzo bean flour, olive oil and skim milk.
(I use this brand found in grocery stores http://www.bobsredmill.com/garbanzo-bean-flour.html)

In my opinion these substitutions are not only better for you, I think they even taste better.
Something about the Garbanzo beans make it richer, but not weird tasting, it still tastes traditional.
