Creative Cooking with Milk

share this article

Have you ever tried using milk in the following ways?

  • Make soups creamier, sauces smoother, casseroles more moist and desserts more delicious and nutritious by substituting milk for all or part of the water ingredient.
  • Use milk in place of cream for most gently cooked sauces. For every 1 cup (250 mL) of milk, simply whisk 1 tbsp (15 mL) all-purpose flour or 2 tsp (10 mL) cornstarch into the milk before adding to the pan and cook, stirring, until the sauce is thickened.
  • Left over evaporated milk from your last recipe? Mix it equally with water, then, for added flavour, use it in recipes that call for regular milk.
  • Out of buttermilk? For each 1 cup (250 mL) required, measure 1 tbsp (15 mL) lemon juice or vinegar into a glass measuring cup and fill with fresh milk to the 1 cup (250 mL) level; let stand for 5 minutes then stir and use in your recipe.
