Roasted Asparagus with Vegan Hollandaise is a fabulous side dish perfect to complement any protein or starch. Fresh, crisp asparagus roasted with garlic and lemon is delicious enough, but drizzling on a buttery, lemony, vegan Hollandaise is the perfect addition to make this side dish a true star.

  • 1 pound of asparagus, trimmed (see above explanation if needed)
  • 1 medium lemon, thinly sliced (or sub 2 tbsp bottled lemon juice)
  • 4 cloves fresh garlic, minced (or sub 1.5 tsp garlic powder)
  • 1 batch vegan Hollandaise sauce, optional


  1. oven to 425 degrees F (218 degrees C).
  2. Wash and trim asparagus and lay them side by side in a lined baking tray.
  3. Rub fresh garlic over the asparagus, distributing it as evenly as possible. Then place lemon slices over the top. (If using bottled lemon juice, I'd use a basting brush to apply that first. Then, if using garlic powder, sprinkle it all over the asparagus.)
  4. Bake for 12-15 minutes -- if you have very thick stalks, it may take slightly longer. 
  5. Asparagus is done when the thickest spear is easily punctured by a fork. Remove tray from the oven, let the asparagus rest for a moment, and then serve. Drizzle the Vegan Hollandaise sauce (internal link) just before serving and enjoy!
