The Soubise Sauce is a classic cream sauce for vegetables made by sauteeing onions and then puréeing them before adding to a basic Béchamel sauce.
The Soubise Sauce is an excellent accompaniment for vegetables, eggs or chicken.
1 pound onions, chopped
4 tablespoons butter
1 quart béchamel sauce
In a heavy-bottomed saucepan, melt the butter and cook the onions until soft and translucent, but don't let them turn brown. Transfer cooked onions to a food processor. Purée briefly and then return them to the pot. Whisk the Béchamel into the puréed onions and bring the sauce to a simmer.
For a simple variation on the classic soubise sauce, add 2 cups of tomato purée to the sauce just before serving.
