Vegan Hollandaise

Vegan Hollandaise Sauce Recipe


Earlier this year i took a trip to santa monica where i experienced the vegan eggs benedict at real food daily, a fabulous vegan restaurant there. It has inspired many dishes since then, in my home and at camyoga (the legendary vegan brunch!) so i was delighted to find a really good vegan hollandaise recipe, with which to impress my non vegan friends.

Vegan Hollandaise Sauce:

3 Tablespoons Vegan margarine 2 Tablespoons all purpose flour pinch of turmeric 1 cup unsweetened soy milk 2 Tablespoons nutritional yeast juice of 1/2 a lemon 1 Tablespoon vegan mayonnaise (i use plamil organic egg free, but the recipe also works fine without) Salt and pepper to taste

Melt the vegan margarine over a low heat, then add the flour and stir, cooking gently for a minute. Add the turmeric (this just adds the colour, so just a little). Slowly whisk in the soya milk. Boil gently for 2 minutes. Then take off the heat and add the nutritional yeast. Nutritional yeast adds a 'cheesy' taste and is quite a strong flavour, so add up to 2 tbsp according to your taste.Then add the lemon juice, and salt and pepper to taste. Finally add the vegan mayo. This recipe works fine without the mayo too if you don't have any.

I had mine served with sea cakes, wilted spinach, sliced crispy potatoes and balsamic tomoatoes.
