  1. Step 1

    Gather the ingredients.
  2. Step 2

    In a small saucepan over low heat, heat the oil.
  3. Step 3

    Add the flour, stirring constantly with a wire whisk for 1 to 2 minutes, or until the flour smells slightly toasted but is not burning.
  4. Step 4

    Whisking constantly, add the soy milk, carefully pouring it down the side of the saucepan. The sauce will sizzle and bubble slightly, and it is important to continue to vigorously stir at this point to prevent your sauce from forming clumps of flour or burning. If this should happen, simply pour your sauce through a fine sieve or strainer before serving.
  5. Step 5

    Cook the sauce until desired thickness is reached.
  6. Step 6

    Add salt and pepper to taste.
  7. Step 7

    Serve hot. This sauce is best served right after it is made.
