We can never get tired of asparagus but just in case you are – here’s a twist. Pair a few roasted asparagus spears with some creamy and zesty Hollandaise sauce and you’ve got a fun new low carb side. Easy Hollandaise Asparagus!
We always thought Hollandaise sauce was a fancy sauce with a difficult prep but we think we’ve simplified it. It can’t get easier! The sauce itself has just a few ingredients and they’re definitely sitting in your fridge right now. What self-respecting keto-er doesn’t have eggs and butter, right? Since setting up a double boiler is a hassle and takes forever to cook egg yolks, we just throw everything into a tiny sauce pan and cook it on low heat. We got a single egg pan and it worked great for this job. Just make sure your flame is on the lowest setting and whisk constantly. You can always add a bit of water if you find your sauce has cooked a bit too much.
And while you’re prepping the sauce, your asparagus is either pan frying or roasting! It’s all pretty straight forward so give it a try and let us know what you think!

Set the asparagus to roast on a greased baking sheet for about 10-15 minutes or until desired doneness. You can also fry it for about 5 minutes.
To make the Hollandaise sauce, whisk your egg yolks until they're a bit paler in color. Whisk in lemon juice and set over a low flame in a small pan (or you can use a double boiler).
Stir the egg yolks until thickened and start adding a cube or 2 of butter at a time, whisking until each is combined in the sauce.
Season Hollandaise with salt, pepper and a dash of cayenne to taste. If your sauce is too thick, add a teaspoon of water at a time until it's the right consistency.
Once the asparagus is cooked, drizzle some Hollandaise over and enjoy!
