    primal cheese sauce?

    Shop Now
    Hi

    Anyone got a recipe for a flour-free cheese sauce? Am having a craving for a lasagne style dish (wish aubergine slices instead of pasta) and it just isn't the same without cheese.

    Oh, I'm pro dairy, so was thinking along the lines of heavy cream, butter and cheddar cheese, but could do with a thickener if possible.

    thanks

    Why not make alfredo? Heavy cream, cream cheese (to thicken), parmesan, butter and garlic. Perfectly primal if you're into dairy. Them top with mozz

    That doesn't really need a thickener, especially if you bring the cream to boiling; but I agree with localad, tempered egg yolks would work very nicely.

    I make a thickener-free cheese sauce for veggie lasagna that is cream, parmesan cheese (freshly grated for best flavor), minced garlic, minced basil, shot of Tabasco, and S&P to taste. Bring the cream to a boil (grate the cheese while this is happening), let it boil for a minute or so, then add everything else and stir. Turn heat down and let it simmer for a few minutes to help meld the flavors and make sure the cheese is completely melted. Oftentimes I'll add well-drained cooked spinach to it too.

    Whole milk and more cheese - it will make up a gorgeous sauce. You can use starch to thicken (like arrowroot) but it can look slimy with milk. Nothing wrong with whole milk or cream - its less lactose and more fat. Use the cheese to thicken.

    The cream cheese makes the alfredo sauce. It's the missing ingredient you've been looking for your whole life trying to get it to taste like restaurant alfredo. It helps the consistency dramatically.

    I wasn't trying to make my sauce taste like alfredo, but thanks for the information!

    thanks all. I used cream, milk and plenty of cheese in the end, but it didn't work too well - it just mixed with the bolognese sauce rather than staying in separate layers. I've just used slices of mozzarella before which work better than today's effort. Will definitely try adding cream cheese next time (or using less milk!!). Good excuse to try again soon!
