Hollandaise Sauce

I know I mentioned in my last post that I would give you that vegan Crab Cake recipe and I still have every intention of doing so in the NEXT post, but this sauce is great over the cakes, so I wanted to share this first. It's my take on a hollandaise sauce, which is usually made from dairy butter and chickens egg yolks. I am happy to say you will find neither of those ingredients here, but you will find a delectable sauce that you can use to turn even the simplest steamed vegetables into a fancy side dish.

Hollandaise Sauce

1/4 C whole wheat pastry flour
1/4 C olive oil
2 C water
1 TBS lemon juice
2 TBS 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 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.

Tip- This sauce can be made ahead of time and stored in the fridge for several days. So, you can make a batch now and be ready for the crab cakes when I post them! ;)

I have begun work on the ebook and could still use a few more testers, so shoot me an email if you're interested. I have also taken on a few more projects that I can't reveal too much about yet, but will share them with you shortly! I will be a guest on Vegan Radio on April 30th around 7:30 pm, you can listen live on Valley Free Radio's website, or you can download the episode from iTunes the day after.

  1. Ed..thanks for all you do. I have been a vegetarian for 15 years and about a year ago decided to go all out..VEGAN!! I must admit, most people think I have lost my mind, so your humorous "10 questions" really struck a chord. I live in a very small, rural, southern town (south of Nashville)and the nearest Whole Foods is an hour away. The only grocery store we have is Wal-mart and if you have been in there lately..you understand my options are somewhat limited. Forget, organic options. So, I tend to eat the same stuff over and over again..alas, your website. I love the recipes you have shared and appreciate the "easy" ingredients and instructions, I cannot wait to try the hollandaise sauce..most of the ingredients are my staples. Again, thanks and keep it coming.
