  3. Place the soy cream in a sauce pan.
  4. Add the vegetable bouillon powder, wine and herbs.
  5. Heat the mixture, taste and add any additional seasonings that you may desire.
  6. Toast the bread.
  7. To assemble lay a slice or 2 of toast on each plate, place a  vegan deli slice on each piece of toast.
  8. Lay 2 or 3 pieces of asparagus on top of each vegan deli slice.
  9. Pour some of the creamy sauce over the top.

    Is there a brand of deli slices you’d recommend? Which did you use here?

    Nice recipe since the asparagus season is just starting now. I also wanted to ask about the deli slices as in the previous comment. I live in The Netherlands and I find hard to buy “meat” slices for bread that are vegan. What brand did you use? and where I could find it here?

    Thank you for your questions. I can’t really recommend anything for you. Each country and each area of countries offer different products. It really depends upon what you can get :-) Traditionally the recipe uses a ham or bologna type meat. I think any mildly smoky flavored vegan lunch meat that you can would be fine. I hope you try the recipe, it’s really tasty. A least we really enjoyed it and as the asparagus season is just starting..we’ll be having this more often :-)
