This Vegan Hollandaise Sauce has all the rich flavor of traditional hollandaise. We swap out the butter and eggs for buttery rich cashews. Along with carrots, the cashews are simmered; this softens the nuts quickly and allows them to blend up luscious and creamy!
Carrot is our secret ingredient, adding color, body and nutrients! Lemon, dijon mustard and black pepper keep the flavors deliciously traditional. It all comes together in about 20 minutes!
We have been enjoying this on so many things! From sourdough English muffins with mushrooms and braised spinach to crispy roasted broccoli and roasted asparagus. It is such a lovely compliment to all the Spring vegetables and herbs.
The leftovers store well in the fridge. You may be surprised at how many things you find yourself using this Vegan Hollandaise Sauce on!
