Easy Cheese Sauce
In a smallish saucepan, whisk flour into the milk, cayenne pepper and stock or salt until there are no lumps of flour. Add butter (if using) and, stirring all the time over a medium heat, bring the sauce to the boil. Turn down the heat and simmer, stirring all the time, for about 30 seconds, to make sure the flour is cooked. (I find this a lot easier than making the traditional roux.) Turn off heat and stir in cheese. Pour over cooked vegetables and serve.
