Cashew Hollandaise Sauce: Easy delicious vegan version of the beloved but difficult eggy classic, traditionally served over Eggs Benedict.

In the vegan universe, Hollandaise is a good keeper, and fabulous with almost everything.

Vegan hollandaise is perfect with Eggplant Tofu Roll Ups or Steamed Asparagus - or any steamed, grilled or roasted veggies.

Recipe Tips:

Soaking Cashews: I've used the quick soak metnod in this recipe, but you can also soak cashews overnight in cold water in the fridge.

I like brown mustard such as Dijon, because imho it has better flavor and is a bit less sharp than yellow mustard. But it's a fine distinction, and any mustard you want to use will work fine. I mean, we're talking 1 tsp!
