Vegan Hollandaise

I tried a recipe that involved blending tofu with lemon juice and mustard and I wasn't really happy with the result. I added things and in the end what I had was more like fake tuna than hollandaise. It tasted good but wasn't what I wanted. So I bought this fancy stuff called "Kala Namak", salt with some sulfur, which is supposed to make things taste like egg and made a hollandaise with it. According to my mum it's better than the original, but I wouldn't want to claim that myself. Still, I'm pleased!

Makes 3-4 one-person-servings

 You need to have:

1tbsp margarine
1 1/2 tbsp flour
200ml soy milk
50-100ml white wine
1tbsp lemon juice
1tsp mustard
1 good pinch nutmeg
1 pinch Kala Namak
pepper to taste

You need to do:

Melt margarine in a saucepan, then stir in the flour. Let simmer (on low heat) for a few minutes. Add soy milk and white wine and let simmer for another 5-6 minutes for the alcohol to go away. 

Add lemon juice, mustard, nutmeg and Kala Namak. Add pepper to taste. Serve with asparagus and potatoes (or whatever else you like).
