A long time ago my grandma used to make me an after-school dinner of chicken, peas and corn in a white roux. Tonight for dinner I wanted to make the same thing, but with sausage instead of chicken. Come to find out that I have no milk, and since I'm starving I didn't want to wait to go all the way to the store just for milk. I looked online and tried a new variation on white roux which you guys might either know of or want to try someday.
Apparently, using the roux as a base, some French sauces don't use milk in the roux, and substitute vegetable stock. It turned out really good
which I am happy for.
Anyway...not only is it a good French sauce, it's also a good substitution for vegetarians. I also read in the examples that oil could be used instead of butter. So I just thought that I should mention it to see if I'm the only one who just
found this out.
