benifits of Asparagus and Potato with homemade vegan hollandaise sauce
Asparagus and potato are excellent sources of vitamin K, which helps to maintain strong bones. This powerful vegetable combination is also high in minerals, such as manganese, magnesium, calcium, potassium, zinc and iron. With two of our most essential ingredients missing from most American diets – fiber and B vitamins – thanks to modern farming practices, it’s easy to find yourself lacking essential nutrients. Thankfully, eating nutrient-rich foods like asparagus helps replenish depleted nutrients in your body.
The folate found in asparagus (along with other green vegetables) is especially important during pregnancy because it works with vitamin B6 to prevent spinal defects in babies during early development.
The perfect springtime dish, asparagus pasta is topped with roasted potatoes, fresh parsley, and chives. To make vegan hollandaise sauce, simply replace butter with coconut oil in your favorite recipe (try our hollandaise here).
The result is rich and creamy; you’ll never miss that egg yolk! You can also serve asparagus pasta cold for an easy lunchtime dish or side salad. Save some of your dressing to use later as a dip for steamed vegetables or warm pita bread.
2) Sausage, Roasted Potatoes, and Green Beans
Sausage is made of savory ingredients, like meat, spices, herbs, and water. When you cook it in water or moist heat, as with sautéing or steaming, it absorbs moisture from its surroundings. The result is that sausage changes shape when you cook it—it becomes plump and firm (see The Art of Sausage Making).
This effect means that if you wrap sausage tightly in foil before cooking, there will be less room for expansion. To keep sausages from swelling during cooking: Leave them unwrapped.
3) Gluten-Free Quiche
Nothing says breakfast like eggs, and you don’t need to eat any kind of eggs at all to enjoy them. Try making your own gluten-free quiche with rice or oat flour in place of wheat flour. In fact, many people who are allergic to eggs can tolerate these gluten-free versions just fine.
Top your quiche with fresh asparagus and potatoes, which pair beautifully with homemade vegan hollandaise sauce. This filling breakfast can easily be made ahead of time so that it’s ready whenever you want it!

5) Spicy Egg Salad Sandwich
Eggs, asparagus, potatoes, cream cheese, mayonnaise. Breakfast just got spicy. Enjoy on your favorite gluten-free bread or roll with lettuce leaves. Of course, it’s perfect if you like spicy food! This egg salad recipe is full of flavor. The spices make it stand out from other egg salads that don’t have much character in terms of taste and texture.
It is also creamy but not runny because of all of that delicious mayonnaise mixed into it. And here’s an interesting fact: Eggs are packed with many nutrients – they’re a major source of protein, iron, vitamin B12 and phosphorus; they’re also high in carotenoids (these compounds have antioxidant properties). Enjoy your healthy breakfast!
