Mustard Dip

  • 1 cup of raw cashews soaked and drained if you don’t have a quality blender or white beans for a nut-free option
  • ¼ cup stone-ground mustard or mustard of choice
  • 1 Tablespoon Maple syrup or date syrup
  • ½ cup of water

How to Make Asparagus Spears Wrapped in Dough


Mustard Sauce

  • If you do not have a quality high-speed blender, soak the raw cashews in water overnight, then drain. Or use drained white beans.
  • If you have a quality high-speed blender, skip the first step.
  • Add all the ingredients to a high-speed blender.
  • Blend until smooth.
  • Cover and place in the refrigerator until ready to use.
  • For a thinner mustard dipping sauce, add additional water until the sauce meets your needs. Use less water for a thicker dip.

Asparagus wrapped in dough

  • Wash and cut the rough ends off the asparagus.
  • Once the dough is chilled, sprinkle flour on a hard surface, and roll the dough out to about ⅛ inch thickness. 
  • Using a pizza cutter or sharp knife, cut the dough into thin strips.
    Prepare a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper and preheat the oven to 425.
  • Now, wrap each asparagus spear with a thin strip of dough, repeating each piece from top to bottom like a candy cane. 
  • To avoid the pieces baking together, leave space between each asparagus spear on the baking sheet as the dough expands while cooking.
  • Cook for 10 minutes or until brown. 
  • Use a spatula to carefully remove the asparagus spears from the baking sheet to keep the dough from breaking. 
  • Serve with mustard sauce or with your favorite sauce. 


  • For a nut-free option, choose silken tofu, white beans, or sunflower seeds instead of cashews. 
  • If you don't like stoneground mustard, choose any mustard flavor you prefer. 
  • Soaking cashews overnight is a way to soften the cashews to make blending them easier. 
  • A quicker way to soften raw cashews is to boil the cashews for 10 minutes, drain and then blend. 
  • Place the mustard dip in the refrigerator to thicken. 
  • To use as a dressing, add a little water at a time until you get your desired texture.
