Can you use Soymilk in making a cream sauce or is it too checmically different from normal cow's milk?

    It may depend on what type of cream sauce, but I've used Soy creamer (specifically Silk's "half-and-half") as a perfectly fine substitute in recipes calling for heavy cream, with good results.

      No need to use milk at all. You can use chicken, seafood or vegetable stock to make a velouté, rather than a bechamel. They're very similar. Both start with a blond roux and then liquid. So, yes, the soy beverage works. Just watch for the sweet flavor in some of them which might be inappropriate.
