Trick of the Eyes

I love hollandaise sauce. It's rich, creamy, and decadent. It's a perfect accompaniment to breakfast or to dinner. And it's a treat because its not very good for you as it's made almost entirely of butter and eggs. 

All that being said, the sauce I'm about to share with you isn't a hollandaise. But, don't worry because I don't think you'll be disappointed after you taste it. It's a curried yogurt sauce that's sweetened with honey and citrus. Plus, it's takes only a small fraction of the time to make it that it would to make a hollandaise. 

Curried Citrus Yogurt Sauce - serves 4-6

3/4 cup plain yogurt 
2 tablespoons each of lemon and orange juice 
1/2 teaspoon each of lemon and orange zest
2 teaspoons of curry powder
1 teaspoon of honey, lemon honey if possible
Salt and pepper to taste 
Steamed asparagus, to serve with the sauce

1. Combine all sauce ingredients in a medium bowl and stir well. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

2. Drizzle sauce over asparagus and enjoy! 

I love the flavour of lemon honey in this sauce. It really makes the citrus flavour pop. I was inspired by the lemon honey from Heavenly Honey found in Foodie Pages new Tasting Box and featured on the Food Bloggers of Canada's website. It really took my sauce to the next level.  

I also love that this sauce is no-cook and that it's so versatile. I served the sauce on some amazing Chick Pea Burgers that I encourage you to visit back in the next few days to check out! They're my best veggie burgers yet!
