Healthy Hollandaise Sauce
No eggs Benedict is complete without hollandaise sauce. This healthy hollandaise sauce recipe has about half the calories than the traditional version.
- Hot water
- ⅔ cup reduced-fat (2%) plain Greek yogurt
- 1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
- 3 large egg yolks
- ½ tsp. Dijon mustard (optional)
- ½ tsp. sea salt (or Himalayan salt)
- 1 pinch ground white pepper (optional)
- Ground cayenne pepper (to taste; optional)
- 3 Tbsp. organic grass-fed butter, melted
Fill large saucepan ¼ full of water. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat; gently boil.
Place a heat-resistant bowl over the saucepan so that it rests snugly like a lid.
Combine yogurt, lemon juice, egg yolks, and mustard (if desired) in a medium bowl; whisk to blend. Season with salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper (if desired).
Add yogurt mixture to bowl over saucepan; cook, stirring constantly, for 5 to 6 minutes, or until sauce thickens.
Remove from heat; add butter, stirring constantly, for 3 to 4 minutes, or until sauce has cooled.
