Even when you load a white sauce based recipe with healthy veggies and other nutritious ingredients, there is still a niggling concern about the amount of butter and refined flour that goes into the white sauce. Not any more! Here is a delectable Low-Calorie White Sauce made with just one teaspoon of low-fat butter and whole wheat flour instead of maida. Cauliflower purée along with low-fat milk imparts a luscious creaminess to the sauce, making it just as good as the authentic recipe. Use this guilt-free white sauce to make your favourite international dishes.

Was really surprised to have a look at this recipe. But I tried and tossed in some pasta and veggies in it and it turned out awesome. Will make only low cal white sauce Italian delicacies henceforth.
