Asparagus with Vegan Hollandaise Sauce

Makes 4 to 6 Servings

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

1 large bunch asparagus, trimmed

3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

½ block soft silken or regular tofu, well drained

¼ teaspoon turmeric

¼ teaspoon sea salt

Place the asparagus in a large steamer and steam for 4 to 6 minutes, or until just crisp tender.

Meanwhile, place the lemon juice, tofu, turmeric and sea salt into a blender and process until smooth and creamy. Pour into a small saucepan and cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until heated through.

Arrange the asparagus on a serving platter and pour the sauce over top. Serve immediately.
