    Default Asparagus dip or sauces

    I once liked Hollandaise sauce with asparagus but I don't use butter any
    more. Has anyone suggestions for other sauces? I personally don't like
    sweet sauces much with vegetables but I have found lemon juice with a
    sprinkling of Parmesan very acceptable.

    I see that you've not exactly been buried in replies there, James :-)

    Not-Hollandaise things I've tried and liked:

    1) Hummus (your favorite variation) with a bit of lemon juice to thin
    it. Cold with raw asparagus, warm with cooked.

    2) Nut "butters," particularly almond. Just nuts whizzed in the food
    processor with a little liquid. A little liqueur of your choice as a
    moistener/flavorizer and/or lots of pepper. Same deal: cold with raw
    asparagus, warm with cooked.

    Balsamic vinegar
    Vinaigrette dressing
    Olive Oil
    Mashed roasted garlic, maybe thinned with a little yogurt
    Soft boiled eggs, dip the asparagus in the yolks

    Cure them as for fermented pickles. I just finished a batch of
    pickled asparagus using salt water, garlic, peppercorns, and hot
    peppers. Awesome stuff. Smells like hell, but tastes great.

    You don't mix (fresh) lemon juice with mayonnaise? That's what I do
    if I want a sauce, otherwise - it's just lemon.

    Gary,

    I'm just dreaming up disaster, as per my usual self.

    I gave up homemade pesto when I found Trader Joe's made an
    equal if not better than my own.

    Best,

    Andy
