I miss my bechamel sauce, but I'm not sure what "milk" substitute to try. I can't do dairy, and DH is allergic to soy milk. I haven't found a gluten-free-oat milk (don't know if one exists). What other milk substitute would work?

I use almond milk in everything like casseroles, gravies, sauces etc.

For bechamel sauce, I've used:

6 tblsp olive oil
3 tblsp rice flour
1 tblsp corn starch
2-1/2 cups almond milk
a little ground nutmeg
salt/pepper

Rice flour doesn't firm up as much as wheat flour, so the extra corn starch helps it thicken. It won't be quite as flavorful as one with cow's milk, butter and wheat but it should work.
