Keto Mousseline Sauce is my rendition of one of the 5 French mother sauces.   In the 19th century, Marie-Antoine Carême anointed Béchamel, Velouté, Espagnole, and tomato sauce as the building blocks for all other sauces in his work L’Art de la Cuisine Francaise au Dix-NeuviemeSiecle. (French chef Marie Antoine Carême was one of the first to celebrate the high art of French cooking revered by royalty and the nouveau riche of Paris.)

WHAT ARE THE 5 FRENCH MOTHER SAUCES?

The 5 French mother sauces are a set of fundamental sauces that form the basis of many other sauces. They are:

  1. Béchamel Sauce: A creamy white sauce made with milk, butter, flour, and nutmeg. It is commonly used in dishes such as macaroni and cheese and lasagna.
  2. Velouté Sauce: A light sauce made with chicken, fish, or veal stock and a blond roux. It can be served on its own or used as a base for other sauces.
  3. Espagnole Sauce: A rich brown sauce made with browned beef or veal bones, mirepoix (a combination of diced carrots, onions, and celery), and tomato paste. It is often used in beef dishes.
  4. Hollandaise Sauce: An emulsified sauce made with egg yolks, butter, lemon juice, and white wine vinegar. It is commonly served with eggs Benedict or asparagus.
  5. Tomato Sauce: A classic sauce made with tomatoes, onions, garlic, and olive oil. It is used in many Italian dishes such as pasta and pizza.

These sauces can be used as a base for many other sauces by adding additional ingredients and flavors to create new and delicious combinations.

WHAT IS MOUSELLINE SAUCE?

Mousseline sauce is a classic French sauce, also known as hollandaise mousseline. It is a lighter version of the hollandaise sauce, which is a warm emulsion of egg yolks, butter, lemon juice and often a pinch of cayenne pepper. The mousseline sauce is made by folding in whipped cream to the hollandaise sauce, giving it a light and airy texture. The whipped cream is added to the hollandaise sauce once it has been prepared and cooled slightly. This sauce is often served with fish, seafood, or vegetables, and it can be a delicious and elegant addition to any dish. The lightness of the sauce makes it a perfect complement to delicate flavors and textures. Salmon Mousseline is a dish that comes right from the Titanic’s menu. 

MOUSELLINE DERIVATIVES:

Shawn and I love this Keto Mousseline Sauce. I do my variation by adding more Dijon and horseradish to serve with BBQ grass-fed steak.

Other variations include:

Avocado (vegetables)

Dill Mousseline (salmon and seafood)

Rosemary and sea salt (Chicken, Fish, Lamb, Pork, Potatoes, Stews)

Rosemary and garlic (beef)

Ranch (chicken, duck)

Turmeric, cayenne, lemon (chicken, fish, seafood)

White wine, garlic, garlic (chicken)

WHAT IS THE NUTRITIONAL VALUE OF KETO MOUSSELINE SAUCE?

Like hollandaise sauce, Keto Mousseline Sauce is made from the most nutritious part of the egg – the yolks!  If you can afford it, go for pasture-raised eggs. Pasture-raised egg yolks are known to be a great source of nutrition and are higher in certain nutrients compared to conventional eggs. They are rich in vitamins A, D, E, and K2, as well as omega-3 fatty acids, which are essential for brain function and heart health.

In fact, pasture-raised egg yolks contain up to six times more vitamin D than conventional eggs. Vitamin D helps regulate calcium and phosphorus levels in the body, which are important for bone health. Additionally, pasture-raised egg yolks are rich in choline, which is important for brain and nervous system function, and also helps reduce inflammation.

Overall, pasture-raised egg yolks are a great source of essential nutrients and can be a healthy addition to your diet.

WHAT IS THE TASTE PROFILE OF KETO MOUSSELINE SAUCE?

Like hollandaise, Keto Mousseline Sauce is a rich, fatty white cream sauce. Decadent is the best way to describe it.

WHAT NON-ALC WINE HARMONIZES WITH KETO MOUSSELINE SAUCE?

This fatty and rich Keto Mousseline Sauce can partner with both white and red non alcoholic wines, depending on the entirety of the dish. Poached salmon, seafood, or even vegetables like asparagus with mousseline work nicely with a non-alc white wine, such as de-alcoholized Chardonnay.  However, if you’re serving this sauce with beef, choose a rich red. The fattiness in the sauce will also complement a red non-alcoholic wine with weight. Think Cabernet Sauvignon or Cabernet Franc.

Zero Alcohol Wine Tips:

ALCOHOL AND KETOSIS:

To support your Keto diet or low-carb lifestyle, opt for quality, non-alcoholic wines that are low-carb and low in sugar. Additionally, alcohol does not align with a keto diet or low-carb lifestyle. Moreover, your liver processes alcohol before nutrients, pausing ketone creation and slowing the ketosis process. Furthermore, your body will metabolize alcohol as fuel before utilizing food, which can decelerate fat burning and may lead to the storage of carbs, fat, and protein as excess body fat. Moreover, alcohol consumption stimulates the appetite, potentially causing overeating.

ALCOHOL AND HEALTH:

Did you know that when you consume alcohol, your liver has to work extra hard to break it down? This can result in damage to your liver. Furthermore, it can elevate your risk of health issues such as inflammation and cancer, particularly with heavy consumption. Additionally, alcohol can disrupt your blood sugar levels, leaving you feeling dehydrated and disrupting your body’s normal functions.

NON-ALCOHOLIC WINE AND HEALTH BENEFITS:

Non-alcoholic wines with minimal carbs and sugar are advantageous for your health. They not only aid in weight management, blood sugar control, and hydration but also contain essential nutrients and antioxidants from grapes that can decrease your risk of health conditions like heart disease. Consequently, since they lack alcohol, they’re ideal for socializing without any adverse effects, promoting feelings of happiness and reduced stress.
