You can use the sauce as a dip or as a sauce over your next grain bowl.
This plant based hollandaise is oil-free, gluten-free, soy-free and, if desired, nut-free.
A hollandaise sauce is one of the most popular sauces to go with asparagus.
And just because we make it without animal products, we don't have to live without a great sauce. And we can make this with whole food plant based ingredients.
Now let's take a look at the ingredients that go into this incredibly creamy dairy-free hollandaise sauce.
You can find the exact quantities below in the recipe card.
White Wine Vinegar
Now let's get down to what ingredients you can swap out.
For a nut-free or budget-friendly alternative, use sunflower seeds and white beans. Here I recommend ⅔ cup (volume 160 ml) sunflower seeds and ½ cup (volume 120 ml) white beans.
Proceed as in the recipe.
White Wine Vinegar
Instead of white wine vinegar, you can also use a small dash of vinegar essence or apple cider vinegar.
The turmeric powder is used to give the vegan hollandaise sauce as great a color as you know it from the hollandaise. You can also omit the powder. However, the color will then be slightly different.
Again, let's take a quick look at the variations.
With this great vegan hollandaise sauce recipe, no adjustments are necessary for a gluten-free, paleo and keto version.
If you want to prepare it nut-free, you can already see how you can make the sauce nut-free under Substitution Cashews.
Take the cashew nuts or sunflower seeds and add them to a high speed mixer.
Add vegetable stock, yeast flakes, white wine vinegar, dijon mustard, turmeric powder, a pinch of nutmeg, garlic powder, onion powder, white pepper and mix until super creamy.
Bring to a oil over medium heat so that it thickens just enough to create a creamy sauce. If it gets too thick, add a little more vegetable stock; if it is too runny, let it boil and thicken a little more.
Enjoy it with asparagus and boiled potatoes.
Prepare in advance
You can prepare this vegan hollandaise sauce in advance.
Here you have a great meal prep recipe. Maybe the sauce thickens a little. But you can easily fix this by adding a sip of water.
This vegan Hollandaise sauce is great to store.
How to refrigerate it?
The leftovers of the vegan hollandaise sauce can be stored in the refrigerator. Simply put in an airtight container and refrigerate.
So this sauce recipe is suitable as a Meap Prep.
How to freeze it?
You can also prepare this sauce in large quantities and then freeze it. Simply put in portions in containers and freeze. The vegan hollandaise sauce keeps there for about 3 months.
Thaw in the refrigerator overnight to warm up and then heat in a saucepan over medium heat.
You can't just serve this sauce over asparagus. There are more options available. The Hollandaise Sauce tastes great with:
Vegan Fried Egg, such as Eggs Benedict.
With everything hearty
Depending on the high-performance mixer, I recommend you soak the cashews.
I like the sauce best with white wine vinegar. You can also use apple cider vinegar.

Loved it. I used your suggestion of sunflower seeds and white beans. A little bit grainy. I will use my higher powered blender next time. Thank you
Hi Toria, sunflower seeds are a little firmer than cashews. I am not sure what blender you used, but I recommend to use a high speed blender like the vitamix or a hamilton beach.
