How to Make Lemon Cream Sauce For Vegetables

Step-by-Step

  1. Melt the butter in a small saucepan, then take the pan off the heat. Stir in the flour and gradually stir in 1 and 1/4 cup of the vegetable cooking liquid (or water or chicken stock). Bring to a boil and simmer for about 10 minutes.
  2. Beat the egg yolk with 1 tablespoon of the lemon juice and 2 tablespoons of the hot sauce. Remove the sauce from heat and add in the egg mixture.
  3. Stir in the cream. Keep the sauce warm, but do not allow to boil, or the egg and cream may curdle. Season to taste with salt and pepper, and more lemon juice, if desired.
    Sprinkle with chopped green onions, if desired.
    Serve over your favorite vegetable.
