This lovely asparagus with vegan hollandaise recipe was shared with us by Laura Theodore, and is from her new “everyday” cookbook, Jazzy Vegetarian Classics: Vegan Twists on American Family Favorites.

Asparagus with Vegan Hollandaise Sauce (a dairy-free recipe)

Laura says, “Asparagus is one of the first crops of spring. My grandmother grew asparagus in her back yard, and she often served it with a rich hollandaise sauce that I, as a child, loved. So, I came up with this easy to-prepare vegan hollandaise that tastes delicious and is low in fat, too! [This recipe] makes the perfect vegetable side dish for any special meal.”

Special Diet Notes & Options: Vegan Hollandaise

This recipe is naturally dairy-free / non-dairy, egg-free, gluten-free, peanut-free, tree nut-free, vegan, and vegetarian. Tofu is used here for seamless consistency and flavor. If you must have soy-free vegan hollandaise, consider using full fat coconut milk or quick homemade cashew cream as a substitute. The coconut milk option may add a more pronounced flavor.

Serves: 4 to 6 servings

  • 1 large bunch asparagus, trimmed
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt

  1. Fit a steamer basket into a medium sauce pan with a tight-fitting lid. Add 2 inches of cold water, then add asparagus. Cover and bring to a boil. Steam the asparagus for 4 to 6 minutes or until crisp-tender.
