easy microwave hollandaise sauce

lately I’ve been making a lot of hollandaise sauce for asparagus after my step dad bought 90 pounds of it for 3$ at PBR Auction. So I decided I’d share my recipe for all those asparagus lovers like me.

1/2 cup of soft butter (not melted)

1 1/2 tablespoons of lemon juice (or however much you want since I like mine quite lemon-y)

3 egg yolks

Put everything together in a microwave-safe bowl and give it a good stir. microwave your mixture for 15 seconds at a time stirring in between each microwave. It will seem quite lumpy at first but after about 3 or 4 times it will start to turn more into a thick sauce. if you like it runnier add more butter and/or lemon juice to your sauce.

My favourite way to have asparagus is to steam it in the microwave for 3-5 minutes so it is still crisp then put hollandaise sauce on it.

super dip!

1 avocado

1 tea spoon of lime juice

about 3/4 cup of ranch dressing

salt and pepper



in a bowl mash your avocado with the lime juice. mix in ranch dressing and salt and pepper to taste.

This super dip is good served with burritos or nachos. you could also add chopped cilantro, tomato, onion,or jalapeno. personally i like mine with just avocado.


peanut sauce

One of my favourite things to eat this on are fresh rolls. They’re super easy and you can put what you like in them. We generally put bean sprouts, carrots, cucumber and shrimp in them and at times cilantro lettuce and rice noodles also. We put what we want in them and wrap it all up in rice paper. Served with this peanut sauce they are delicious. ingredients 6 tbsp coconut milk
2 tbsp brewed black tea (or chai tea)
3 tbsp natural peanut butter (creamy, salted)
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp dried basil (or 1 tsp finely chopped fresh basil or cilantro)
1 tsp honey
1 tsp sesame oil
1 tsp rice vinegar
pinch crushed red pepper flakes
1 tsp Sriracha
3 tsp soy sauce
2 tsp finely grated or minced fresh ginger instructions Put everything in a jar. Secure the lid and shake well.
