Creamy Low Fat White Sauce

User Rating 4 Star Rating (2 Reviews)


Easy low fat white sauce recipe, made flavorful with a little onion and optional cheese.


  • 2 tablespoons finely minced onion
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 2 cups skim milk
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 1 teaspoon chicken base or bouillon granules, such as Wyler's Shakers
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • fresh grated Parmesan cheese or shredded Cheddar cheese, optional


Cook onion and broth in a 1-quart saucepan until liquid is almost all cooked away.

In a small bowl, whisk flour with the skim milk. Add to the saucepan and continue to cook, whisking, until sauce begins to thicken. Add wine and soup base; taste and season with salt and pepper.
If desired, blend in a few tablespoons of freshly grated Parmesan cheese or a little shredded Cheddar cheese, and cook over low heat for 2 to 3 minutes longer, until well blended.
