Asparagus side dish with Creamy Garlic Sauce

Spring is already well underway. Are you looking forward to finally enjoying local, in-season vegetables? To celebrate the arrival of warmer weather, we suggest an asparagus side dish recipe, a vegetable with many nutritional benefits that can be grown as early as mid-May!

Asparagus is a little-known and underused vegetable, but it is full of dietary fibre and a good source of iron, magnesium, potassium, and vitamin C. It is a delicious accompaniment to fish, seafood, and omelettes!

Servings: 4

Preparation time: 15 minutes

Cooking time: 3 minutes


  • 1 bunch of fresh asparagus (325g)
  • ¾ cup 15% cooking cream*
  • 1 tsp (5 ml) garlic powder
  • 2 tsp (10 ml) nutritional yeast
  • ½ tsp (2.5 ml) dried thyme
  • Salt (generous pinch)
  • Pepper (small pinch)
  • 1-2 tsp (5-10 ml) cornstarch

*Substitute cooking cream with soy cream for dairy-free and vegan


  1. In a food processor, blend cream, garlic powder, nutritional yeast, thyme, salt, and pepper until smooth.
  2. Transfer the mixture to a saucepan and heat over medium heat. Gently bring the mixture to a boil.
  3. Reduce heat and gradually add 1-2 tsp. cornstarch, stirring constantly.
  4. When mixture has thickened, remove from heat, and let rest.
  5. Rinse asparagus under cool running water, then break off stem ends by hand.
  6. Boil or steam the asparagus for 3 minutes (1 to 2 minutes longer if the asparagus is larger).
  7. Spoon the creamy garlic sauce over the asparagus and serve immediately.

This asparagus side dish would pair well with this Caramelized Salmon with Maple Syrup recipe!
