Asparagus with Creamy Orange Sauce

Serves 4

30 minutes or fewer

The heat of fresh-cooked asparagus brings out the orange flavor in the sauce, so be sure to spoon the sauce over the stalks while they are piping hot.
  • ½ cup soy mayonnaise
  • ½ cup fresh orange juice
  • 2 tsp. grated orange zest
  • 2 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • 2 lb. asparagus, trimmed

1. Whisk together mayonnaise, orange juice, orange zest, and mustard in bowl.

2. Cook asparagus in boiling salted water 1 to 3 minutes, or until crisp-tender. Drain, and place on serving plate. Pour sauce over bottom halves of asparagus.

Simply delicious! Very easy to make. I often make roasted or grilled asparagus and this sauce is lovely drizzled on top. It is light yet adds a bright, fresh flavor to the asparagus. This recipe is definitely going into my regular rotation.
