Yields: 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 1/2 cups low fat milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Heat the oil in a medium saucepan. Add the shallots and cook until soft. Add the flour and cook until browned and smooth, about 4 minutes. Stir in the milk. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly, and cook for 1 minute. Add the salt, pepper, and nutmeg and turn off the heat.
