    STEP 1: Melt the butter in a saucepan over a medium heat. Stir in the flour and cook for 1–2 minutes. Keep it moving and don’t let it catch.

    STEP 2: Take the pan off the heat and gradually stir in one-third of the milk. Return to the heat and simmer, stirring, until all the milk is absorbed. Repeat this process until all the milk has been added.

    STEP 3:Simmer gently for 5 minutes and season with salt and pepper.

    STEP 4: Stir in the parsley and serve.
