This recipe is a twist on an old standard: eggs Benedict, healthy style. This “healthy hollandaise” sauce is made mostly of Greek yogurt, with a little lemon, touch of butter, and some Matcha for an unexpected kick.

 

INGREDIENTS

    • 1 cup Greek yogurt
    • 1/4 cup melted butter
    • Juice from 1 lemon (~ 3 tablespoons)
    • 1 ½ tsp Aiya Cooking Grade Matcha
    • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
    • 1/2 tsp cumin
    • 1 tsp honey
    • 1/4 tsp kosher salt
    • Around 1/4 cup warm water
    • 8 eggs
    • 4 whole grain English muffins
    • Chives for garnish
    • Edible flowers or other toppings for garnish, if desired

DIRECTIONS

  1. Melt ¼ cup butter. In a bowl, mix together ¼ cup melted butter, 1 cup Greek yogurt, juice from 1 lemon (~ 3 tablespoons), 1 ½ teaspoons matcha, ½ teaspoon garlic powder, ½ teaspoon cumin, 1 teaspoon honey, and ¼ teaspoon kosher salt. Mix thoroughly to combine. Add warm water a few tablespoons at a time to thin out the sauce, up to ¼ cup.
  2. Poach 8 eggs. Toast 4 whole grain English muffins. Thinly slice the chives.
  3. To serve, place poached eggs on English muffin halves, drizzle with sauce and garnish with chives.
