This no-egg hollandaise sauce not only dazzles the taste buds but also packs a punch in terms of health benefits. The star ingredient, raw cashew nuts, provides a creamy base rich in heart-healthy fats and plant-based proteins. Their nutrient profile includes vitamins like E and K and minerals such as magnesium and iron, supporting overall wellness.

Nutritional yeast, a key component, not only lends a savoury, cheese-like flavour but also offers a boost of B vitamins, adding to the sauce’s nutritional value. The addition of turmeric, celebrated for its active compound curcumin, brings anti-inflammatory properties to the mix, potentially aiding in reducing inflammation in the body.

Black salt, or kala namak, doesn’t just enhance the sauce’s taste with its slightly sulfurous notes; it contains trace minerals that could contribute to electrolyte balance. Miso, another ingredient, provides probiotics that promote gut health and aid digestion.

This sauce doesn’t just rely on taste; it’s a wholesome addition to dishes, offering a balance of nutrients and potential health-boosting properties. The lemon juice adds a zingy touch while contributing vitamin C, known for its immune-boosting prowess. Altogether, this no-egg hollandaise sauce isn’t just delicious; it’s a nutrient-rich, plant-powered alternative that elevates both flavour and health in your culinary adventures.

Normally you might find me behind the coding of our sites but over the years I have become much more concerned about what has been happening in the kitchen as well - families do that for all of us don't they? Background experience is in Account Management and Web Development but as my passion has grown for WFPB so has my desire to speak out.
