Asparagus with Light Mousseline Sauce

Spring is here! It’s the per­fect time to enjoy aspara­gus. Aspara­gus with Light Mous­se­line Sauce is a won­der­ful way to dip aspara­gus in a sauce, with­out gain­ing any weight because the sauce is super light! Mous­se­line sauce is a French sauce, tra­di­tion­al­ly made with egg and cream. My recipe keeps the egg, but uses fat free greek yogurt instead of cream, mak­ing it super light, while still keep­ing the fla­vors!

Recipe

My recipe is inspired by Mallet’s Sim­plis­sime light cook­book. Mal­let uses a French yogurt called “petits-suiss­es”. My recipe uses fat free greek yogurt instead, which I love + it is easy to find in the US!

Because the goal of this recipe is to make it as light as pos­si­ble, the aspara­gus is cooked in a food steam­er.

  2. Pre­pare the sauce. Sep­a­rate the egg white from the egg yolk. Set aside the egg white (we will use it lat­er). Mix the egg yolk with the yogurt, the mus­tard and the chives. Sea­son with salt and pep­per.

  3. Whisk the egg white until stiff. To do this, add a pinch of salt to the egg white, and mix with an elec­tric mix­er, always in the same direc­tion, grad­u­al­ly increas­ing speed, until stiff.

  4. Then, gen­tly add the stiff egg white to your yogurt mix­ture, and mix, slow­ly and care­ful­ly, so as to not break the egg white. This is your sauce.
