Bearnaise Sauce

  By Ron Pickarski  ,

October 26, 2015

Béarnaise sauce is generally served to compliment a protein served as an entrée. It goes well with seitan steak, vegan chicken cutlets, walnut loaf, and seared tempeh.

¼ cup water (or 2 T each of water and red wine)

¼ cup white wine

1 T vegan beef style broth or 1 ½ T Tamari for gluten- free

2 tsp. dried tarragon leaf

1/8 tsp. annatto (turmeric is an alternative but be careful – it has a strong flavor)

1 T chopped shallots

6 oz. extra firm silken tofu

¼ cup vegan butter spread


Place water, wine, broth powder (or Tamari), annatto (or turmeric) and shallots into a 1 quart saucepan on medium-low heat and cook until reduced to about ¼ cup.

Place all ingredients (warm liquid, tofu and butter spread into a blender and blend until smooth, about 30 to 60 seconds. (It is optional to use a hand blender which will take longer to blend into a smooth cream.)

Before serving, warm in a double broiler or microwave until approximately 160 degrees fahrenheit.
