Welcome the arrival of spring with this beautiful side dish that features a trio of garden-fresh vegetables: asparagus, English peas and fava beans. If you can’t find favas, substitute an equal amount of peas, lima beans or edamame.

  • 402


  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 1/2 Tbs. fresh lemon juice
  • 10 Tbs. (1 1/4 sticks) (5 oz./155 g) unsalted butter, melted and
      kept warm
  • 1/2 tsp. kosher salt, plus more, to taste
  • 2 Tbs. olive oil
  • 2 shallots, thinly sliced into rings
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 1 bunch asparagus, ends trimmed, spears cut on the bias into
      2-inch (5-cm) pieces
  • 1 cup (5 oz./155 g) shelled English peas or defrosted frozen
  • 1 cup (5 oz./155 g) shelled and skinned fava beans
  • 1/4 cup (2 fl. oz./60 ml) water

Wine Pairing

This pairs well with soft, full-bodied white wines from our Wine Club.


In a small bowl, using an immersion blender, blend the egg yolks and lemon juice until well combined. Moving the immersion blender up and down while blending, gradually drizzle in the butter until the hollandaise sauce is thick and creamy. Stir in the 1/2 tsp. salt. Adjust the seasoning as needed. Keep the sauce warm.

In a large sauté pan over medium heat, warm 1 Tbs. of the olive oil. Add the shallots and cook, stirring occasionally, until caramelized, about 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer to a bowl.

Set the pan over medium-high heat and warm the remaining 1 Tbs. olive oil. Add the asparagus and cook, tossing occasionally, for 2 to 3 minutes. Add the peas, fava beans and water and cook, tossing occasionally, until the water has evaporated, 2 to 3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.  Return the shallots to the pan and toss to distribute evenly. Transfer to a platter and serve immediately with the warm hollandaise sauce on the side. Serves 6 to 8.
