How To Make a Roux

If you know how to make a roux you now basically have the key ingredient to perfect sauces, gravies, soups, and stews.

So today we would like to share with you a simple guide on how to make all three types of roux for different uses in cooking.

How To Make a Roux

The White Type

White roux is the most common type. It has a mild flavor and the strongest thickening power. It is often used in white sauces such as a bechamel and cheese sauce.

The Blonde Type

It is also used in white sauces but has a mild, nutty flavor. The thickening power is less strong.

The Brown Type

It has a strong toasted flavor and the least thickening power. It is best to use it for rich sauces and gumbo.

Homemade Roux

Ingredients:

  • 4 tbsp butter
  • ½ cup (60 g) wheat flour

Instructions:

  1. First, you need to melt the butter in a large cast-iron skillet. You can also replace the butter with vegetable oil.
  2. Then add all the flour to the skillet and start stirring with a wooden spoon. Stir for about a minute.
  3. Cook the mixture until it’s smooth and doesn’t have any lumps. Small bubbles should begin to form.
  4. Now you have a white roux. To make a blonde roux cook this mixture for about 4 minutes constantly stirring. To make the brown type cook for 10 minutes.

Like many people nowadays, I love to explore new places. My favorite type is slow travelling, when you can really blend in with locals and learn about new cultures and languages. But I think there are also perfect times for enjoying freshly baked pastry, a cup of fragrant coffee, and a good movie in the comfort of your own home. I guess I'm kind of a cultural omnivore, and I watch different types of movies, but the ones about art and food inspire me the most!
