White Asparagus with Saffron Silky Tofu Dressing - Vegan, Gluten-Free

White asparagus must be peeled, as the outside is fibrous and bitter. They have an earthier, nuttier and sweeter flavour than the usual green variety, and can be enjoyed raw or cooked. Though white asparagus is traditionally served very simply, just with parsley potatoes and a generous helping of melted butter or a velvety Hollandaise sauce, this vegan saffron flavoured silken tofu dressing is just as amazing.

  • 600 g White asparagus, peeled and trimmed
  • 150 g Silky tofu
  • 1 large pinch Saffron powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tsp Apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp Chives, chopped
  • 2 tbsp Almond slices, toasted
  1. Peel and trim the white asparagus. Bring a pot of water to a boil and season with salt lightly. Cook prepared asparagus, covered, for 10 minutes.
  2. Add tofu, saffron, salt, pepper and apple cider vinegar in an immersion blender. Blender until smooth and creamy. Stir in half of the chopped chives.
  3. Place asparagus on serving plates. Spoon the dressing over and sprinkle with the remaining chives and toasted almond slices.

I haven't seen white asparagus yet this year, but your topping would be both beautiful and delicious on green asparagus until then!!

Angie, what a delightful vegan substitute for hollandaise--not that it is "just" a substitute for something else, it can stand on its own!

Vicki Bensinger 31/5/18 23:02

This is so pretty. I have to say I've never quite acquired a taste for tofu. While I know it doesn't have much flavor, I just haven't gotten use to it. Maybe I need to try it again. This looks like a nice way to serve asparagus.

I actually was going to do a post on white asparagus and then I somehow deleted all the photos! I'm so happy you posted yours! I love white asparagus!

Very clever way to serve white asparagus with sauce made with tofu, Angie.

[Reply]
Jeff 1/6/18 15:03

I've had silken tofu sauces before, and I love them! I have a tofu aioli sauce that I'm particularly fond of. However, I love how straightforward this one is. Saffron, cider vinegar, and chives … what a nice combination!

Such beautiful asparagus! It's not easy to find the white kind here and it never looks as healthy as yours. I love the touch of saffron and almonds in your recipe, Angie.

I saw white asparagus when I was in Seattle this year - hadn't tried it but your pairing with that saffron silky tofu sauce sounds wonderful, Angie!

Alida 4/6/18 23:16

A gourmet recipe Angie! Here in the UK white asparagus are quite hard to find. In Northern Italy where I come from they are very popular though and delicious especially with risotto. I really love the way you have prepared them!

Eva Taylor 5/6/18 13:52

So strange, I was certain to have committed here. We don’t often see white asparagus here, never in the normal grocery stores but sometimes in the specialty stores. Making the sauce out of tofu is very clever indeed!

Roz Corieri Paige 5/6/18 16:07

What an elegant way to serve asparagus; I love how you chose to use white asparagus that makes this presentation even more special. What a keeper Angie!

We ate a lot of white asparagus when we lived in Germany, but don't see much of it here. Bet your recipe is great! Thanks for sharing!

White asparagus is my favorite, so exquisite, and elegant...you certainly have a way of dressing it up so elegantly and deliciously!

I've never tried white asparagus but it's good to know that they must be peeled. I know asparagus have some exceptional health benefits so I try to get them when I can. Thanks for the great sauce recipe for a topping

Looks delicious! What's the taste difference between green asparagus and white asparagus?

I have never seen quite asparagus for sale here in the UK, though I have eaten it. Can no longer remember where or what it tasted like though.

White asparagus is so special and so elegant Angie. The sauce with saffron added must be divine!
