Preparation
!

1

In a saucepan, melt the margarine over a medium to high heat. As the margarine melts, add the flour and whisk them together until you've got a nice, smooth paste.

2

Bit by bit, gradually add the Alpro Not M*lk Whole and carry on whisking like mad.

3

Keep going as your sauce gradually thickens, until it's just how you want it (but remember, it'll carry on thickening as it cools).

4

Season with lemon juice, salt, pepper and nutmeg. Lastly, add the chopped herbs and nutritional yeast if you want to add extra flavour or umami.
