What simply belongs to asparagus? Exactly: the hollandaise sauce! Unfortunately, the classic dish needs a lot of butter. But thanks to the yoghurt base, far fewer calories are put on the table than with the rich original. And provides protein at the same time!

Very important for a good success: Yoghurt and butter should be at room temperature, otherwise the hollandaise curdles. For the same reason, the sauce boat must be preheated or you can put the hollandaise directly on the warm asparagus.
