BECHAMEL PREPARATION: Meanwhile, prepare the béchamel. Melt the margarine in a heavy-bottomed pan, add the gluten-free corn flour and whisk them together for 3-4 minutes over low heat, until smooth. Heat the vegetable milk in a separate pan, then pour it into the roux in a slow stream. Adjust the salt, season with nutmeg, and continue cooking, whisking constantly to avoid the formation of lumps, until the sauce is thick and creamy. If the béchamel is too thick, add a bit of milk. If it is too thin, let it cook for a few additional minutes.
