I steamed the asparagus just until done going against usual protocol of roasting asparagus. Excellent instructions, too. Don't leave the room even for a second as I did because my sauce was not as smooth as it should have been. Directions read to whisk constantly and for good reason. Reviewed for Veg Swap July.
Delicious! Using fresh asparagus I boiled it for 7 minutes. The Hollandaise Sauce was very tasty! There isn't any vegetable better in the Springtime than fresh asparagus and will go well as a side dish with any entree! We enjoyed it and will have this recipe again for dinner.
