This is a vegan take on hollandaise sauce, which is usually made from dairy butter and chickens egg yolks. Of course you don't have to worry about those ingredients here. This sauce is so delicious on steam vegetables, and is guaranteed to turn any dish into a mouth watering treat.
Vegan Hollandaise Sauce
- 1/4 C whole wheat pastry flour
- 1/4 C olive oil
- 2 C water
- 1 TBS lemon juice
- 1/4 C nutritional yeast
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
- 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
In a saucepan, over medium heat, cook the pastry flour and olive oil together for about 5 minutes stirring constantly. A thick paste will form.
Turn heat down to medium-low and begin adding the water 1/2 C at a time, making sure to work out any lumps before adding more. A whisk is helpful, but not necessary.
Once all the water is combined, add the lemon juice, nutritional yeast, salt, pepper, cayenne pepper, and nutmeg. Continue to heat on medium-low, stirring frequently for 5-10 minutes, until sauce is hot and thick.
Makes about 2 cups of sauce.
