    Bechamel sauce, if you want a basic white sauce is tricky. Took me a while to understand the consistency I was looking for.

    I work on about 50g butter, melt that in a saucepan. Add 2 tablespoons plain flour and mix so it is a paste. Heat needs to be medium here. If the mixture is sticking and looks dry, you need more butter. It needs to look pasty. Cook that for a couple if minutes to get the craw flavour out. If it goes brown, it has gone too far for a white sauce, but is used for other sauces. If brown it is called a brown roux. If still creamy it is just called a roux.
    Add milk. About 500 ml. Some people say make sure the milk is warm. Sometimes to take it off the heat and gradually add as you stir. You want no lumps. If there are lumps, use a whisk until smooth. (Technically books say no whisk as it can activate the gluten in flour and make sauce tough, but a bit if whisking never hurt my sauces).
    Heat gently until simmering, stirring ALL the time with a metal spoon. Then turn heat down and simmer for 5 or 10 minutes. Stir occasionally.
    Add salt, nutmeg if you wish, and pepper. Cheese, if you want a mornay sauce.

    Can be used for bechamel for lasagne, cheesy for mornay, use different cheeses for Mac and cheese. Add mustard for a white sauce with corned beef b

    I got sick of the cost of museli bars so after trialing a few different recipes I finally found one that works. I'll post again when I find it.

    Here's another easy one. I just raided mum's recipes which were pretty simple!

    Tuna Marinara

    1 tablespoon butter
    1 chopped onion
    1/2 cup green pepper, chopped
    1 clove garlic, crushed
    1 x 410g crushed tomatoes
    1 tsp sugar
    salt and pepper
    3 tsp cornflour - dissolved in a little water
    1 tsp chopped parsley
    1 tsp grated parmesan
    1/4 tsp dried basil and oregano
    425g tin Tuna

    Heat butter and saute onion, celery, green pepper and garlic for 2 minutes. Add tomatoes with liquid, basil, oregano, sugar, salt and pepper. Cook over moderate heat for 30 minutes. Remove from heat and add cornflour.
    Flake tuna into chunks and add to mixture.
    Heat gently and serve on rice.
    Sprinkle with parmesan and parsley.

    For bashemel sauce I simply use thickened cream with cheese in between my lasagne layers also made tortillas today that were amazing! We spend so much on wraps as find them better than bread, and making them myself was easy. Just 2cups of sr flour, some salt, 3tbsp of oil and 3/4cup of water. Knead it and then roll out into the sizes you want. Will now be using this same recipe for wraps, dipping bread and naan bread. Also my dd loves gnocchi so we made some at home, again amazed at how easy!
