Prepare a blond roux by melting the butter in a small pot over medium heat. Add the flour and stir until the mixture is smooth. Cook the roux, stirring constantly, until it is a golden straw color and has a slightly nutty aroma. Cool the roux to help prevent lumps when it is added to the hot liquid.
Bring the water to a boil in a medium-size pot.
