BUILDING BLOCK: Savory Sauce Base

I made a mustard sauce last night, and in the process realized how easy it is to make a sauce base (add in whatever you like post base-creation).

Serving Size: Modify Accordingly

  • 2 tbsp cornstarch (or use 4 tbsp flour and double water)
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup chicken/veggie broth
  • Mix cornstarch/flour with water and let sit
  • Boil broth and subsequently bring to a simmer
  • Add in mixture to broth - stir until sauce thickens
  • Add additional broth if you want a thinner sauce
  • Add in desired ingredients (for a mustard sauce - try two tbsp of a spicy mustard)
