Easy Blender Hollandaise Sauce Roasted Asparagus is a super rich and creamy sauce that goes perfectly with eggs, meats and definitely roasted asparagus.
I’m sure you’ve heard of a Hollandaise Sauce, it’s something that I reserve for special occasions, until recently that is.
I just found out how to quickly make this deliciously creamy sauce in a blender and it’s quite dangerous. Now I want to drizzle this goodness on top of EVERYTHING!
It’s true that Hollandaise Sauce can be quite fatty, so it’s probably not a good idea to actually put it on everything. If you’ve shied away from making this in the past because you thought it would be too difficult, I beg you to take a second look.
This sauce is literally ready in one minute, and it couldn’t be easier to make!
You simply start with egg yolks, lemon juice and a pinch of cayenne pepper in the blender. Give them a few whirls to blend the egg yolks and get some air into them.
Then you’ll slowly add in melted butter, while the blender is on low, and the sauce will thicken slightly. Voila! You’re done!
This rich and creamy sauce has just a hint of heat from the cayenne and is absolutely perfect when drizzled over some roasted asparagus!
Is there anything more gorgeous than fresh asparagus?!
I love this time of year when asparagus is so cheap. We have asparagus at least two or three times a week!
Once your asparagus is roasted (which takes less than 15 minutes), you can drizzle that Hollandaise Sauce right on top.
Be warned… this stuff is SO GOOD!
Once you make your Hollandaise Sauce you’ll want to use it fresh, within the hour. If you have leftovers, you can refrigerate it for up to 2 days (I’ve left reheating instructions in the recipe below). 🙂
You’re going to feel like a true chef with this simple recipe and everyone will be super impressed!
