Steamed Asparagus w/ Vegan Hollandaise Sauce

Steamed Asparagus with Hollandaise Sauce PinThis Steamed Asparagus w/ Vegan Hollandaise Sauce is a real treat. You can obviously eat the steamed asparagus without Vegan Hollandaise Sauce to reduce the calories, but the sauce makes it extra decadent.

Asparagus is one of my favorite veggies. And according to Health.com, it’s super good for you: “The bright-green veggie is packed with good-for-you vitamins and minerals like vitamins A, C, E, K, and B6, as well as folate, iron, copper, calcium, protein, and fiber. Thanks to all these nutrients, asparagus offers some serious health perks.”

Vegan Sardou

Vegan Sardou PinThis Vegan Sardou is a real treat. It’s relatively easy to prepare and tastes absolutely delicious. It’s filling, rich, creamy and has a variety of flavors to tease your tastebuds.

The traditional Eggs Sardou is a Louisiana Creole dish that features poached eggs over roasted artichokes and creamed spinach, and topped with hollandaise sauce. That means it has about a bazillion calories and a pound of cholesterol.

However, our delicious Vegan Sardou only has 324 calories per serving, and since there’s no animal products, you get zero grams of cholesterol!

Despite being a combination of four different recipes, it only takes about 20 minutes to prepare since you can cook them all at the same time. Here are the four recipes you’ll need to make this dish:

You can also prepare the Easy Tofu Scramble and/or the Vegan Hollandaise Sauce ahead of time and heat them up when you’re ready to assemble the Vegan Sardou.

The Easy Tofu Scramble recipe makes enough for 4 servings, but this recipe only uses 2 servings. That means you’ll have leftovers, or you can have 1/2 the scrambled tofu for breakfast one morning and use the rest for your Vegan Sardou on the following morning.

The Vegan Hollandaise Sauce makes about 8 servings at 2 tbsp per serving. It’ll keep in the refrigerator for up to a week, or you can freeze it for up to two months. It goes great drizzled over Steamed Asparagus, too. Yum!

Vegan Hollandaise Sauce

Vegan Hollandaise Sauce PinThis Vegan Hollandaise Sauce tastes so much like the real thing it’s scary! But you won’t find any cholesterol in this vegan version of a normally heart clogging recipe. It’s a perfect topping for your Vegan Sardou or Steamed Asparagus.

If your cashew cream is room temperature, you may not need to warm it up on the stove. Our cashew cream was in the refrigerator so the sauce was cold despite the hot water.

Also, hollandaise sauce should be pretty thin so it pours evenly. When we heated it up, it thickened so we had to add another 1/4 cup of water to thin it out.

Remember to prepare your Vegan Cashew Cream ahead of time so it’s ready when you want to prepare your Vegan Hollandaise Sauce.

Vegan French Toast

Vegan French Toast PinThis vegan french toast is just what your morning routine needs. It’s sweet and cinnamon-y, and only takes a few minutes to prepare.

French toast was a special occasion treat in our house when I was a kid. Mom usually made it on Saturday morning while I watched cartoons, but only a couple times a year. The nice thing about this recipe is that it’s fast and easy to make so you can eat it as often as you want.

Non-vegan french toast is made with eggs, but we used the 3 tbsp of aquafaba (aka garbanzo bean juice), which is the equivalent of one egg. And this recipe achieves the same taste and deliciousness of regular french toast.

We’ve tried a few different types of bread, but we found that denser bread works better. It doesn’t fall apart when you dip it in the batter. The bread in the pictures and video is Dave’s Killer Bread – Blues Bread with Blue Cornmeal Crust. It’s organic, non-GMO, has 5g protein, 4g fiber…and it’s delicious!

We used maple syrup and a little powdered sugar, but your favorite fruit spread would also taste great. If you like this recipe, you’ll probably love our Vegan Pancakes or Vegan Chia Seed Pancakes.

HINT: Refrigerate your bread overnight to give it some extra rigidity so it holds together better when you dip it in the batter.

Bon Appétit!

Vegan Artichoke Spinach Dip

Spinach Artichoke Dip PinThis Vegan Artichoke Spinach Dip is a party favorite and one of my personal favorites. Instead of using sour cream and cream cheese, this recipe uses cashews and lemon juice to create that familiar texture and taste.

Before we went vegan, Amelia and I used to order artichoke spinach dip while sitting at the bar. It tasted great, but I never liked the greasiness of it and each bite was accompanied by a little pang of guilt from the spike it gave to my cholesterol. This vegan artichoke spinach dip is guilt free since vegan food doesn’t contain cholesterol.

Serve with tortilla chips, pita chips, sliced veggies (carrots, red pepper, cucumber) or a baguette.
