In a small saucepan, heat oil over medium heat. Add flour and gently stir for a few minutes. Bring water or stock to a boil and slowly pour into flour/oil mixture; whisk vigorously. Blend in Rice Dream, salt and pepper. Reduce flame to low or place a heat diffuser under the pan. Cover and simmer for 10-15 minutes. Adjust seasonings to taste.
