Here’s a healthy version of Eggs Benedict where the bacon is replaced by perfectly sauteed spinach and the hollandaise sauce is on the lighter side.
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Serving Size: ½ English muffin + 1 poached egg + 2 tablespoons sauce
1 teaspoon olive oil
4 cups fresh baby spinach
1 clove garlic, minced
4 eggs, poached (see Chef Tip below)
1 egg yolk
½ teaspoon lemon juice
2 tablespoons low sodium vegetable broth
¼ cup non-fat, plain yogurt
¼ teaspoon salt (optional)
Dash of ground black pepper
2 light, whole grain English muffins, split and lightly toasted
Chef Tip: Try poaching eggs in the microwave. Fill a 1-cup microwaveable bowl or teacup with 1/2 cup water. Gently crack an egg into the water, making sure it’s completely submerged. Cover with a saucer and microwave on high for about 1 minute, or until the white is set but the yolk is still soft. Use a slotted spoon to transfer the egg to a plate.
