  • 50 g butter non-dairy
  • 1 1/2 tbsp flour
  • 1 1/2 dl (2/3 cup) milk non-dairy
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 veggie stock cube
  • 1 pressed garlic clove
  • 2 tsp tarragon
  • 1 bunch fresh parsley
  • 1 pinch turmeric
  • salt
  • pepper


  1. Melt the non-dairy butter in a saucepan over medium heat.

  2. Once the non-dairy butter has melted, lower the heat and whisk in the flour to create a sticky paste. 

  3. Add the non-dairy milk and continue to stir and make sure that all of the flour and butter mixture is dissolved. 

  4. Bring to a simmer and continue to stir for about 5-10 minutes, until the sauce thickens.

  5. Add all of the other ingredients except the fresh parsley and simmer while stirring for another couple of minutes.

  6. Scoop up the bearnaise sauce and sprinkle some fresh parsley on top.

Note: You can serve the sauce immediately when it's warm or store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator for a couple of days.

TIP! If you think that the consistency is to thick you can add some water to thin the sauce out a bit.
