Easy Cheese Sauce
Adapted from Cooking Light Cheddar Cheese Sauce Recipe.
Ingredients for 1 1/2 cups cheese sauce
- 2 cups milk, divided
- 2 1/2 tablespoons whole wheat flour
- 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/4 teaspoon cumin
- 3 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, shredded (about 2/3 cup, packed)
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper (optional...I leave it out for the kids and add a bit to my own)
Combine 1/2 cup of the milk and the flour in a saucepan and whisk to combine. Stir in remaining milk, sea salt and cumin. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring frequently. Reduce heat to low and simmer for about 2 minutes until slightly thickened, stirring constantly.
Remove from heat. Stir in cheese and, if desired, black pepper. Stir until cheese melts. Serve over noodles, vegetables or as a dipping sauce.
Yum. This sauce is nice and mild for the kids, and delicious for the adults. We had ours over noodles and broccoli and everyone enjoyed it. This is a definite repeat for its simplicity and it's yumminess.
