Eggless Benedict with Hollandaise

  • Prep Time : 10m
  • Cook Time : 5m

One of my favorite meals before I became plant-based was an Eggs Benedict with Hollandaise. Never would I have thought it could be recreated without animal products! Everyone seems to love this dish since I’ve been making it! Enjoy!


  • 1 avocado, thinly sliced
  • 1 tomato, thinly sliced
  • 8 slices bread or English muffins (whatever is available or preferred), toasted
  • Cayenne pepper, for garnishing
  • Paprika, for garnishing
  • Freshly ground black pepper, for garnishing
  • 3/4 cup of soft tofu
  • 2 tsp mustard
  • 4 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 1/2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup plain almond milk
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp soy sauce
  • Pinch paprika
  • Pinch turmeric
  • Salt & pepper to taste


Step 1

Place the following in a blender for the Hollandaise: tofu, mustard, nutritional yeast, lemon juice, almond milk, oil, soy sauce, and spices. Blend until smooth. Gently warm in a medium saucepan on low heat.

Step 2

To assemble: On each half of muffin or toast, place a slice of tomato and a few slices of avocado. Drizzle warmed sauce on top and sprinkle the sauce with a bit of pepper, paprika, and cayenne pepper.

Cooking vegan meals brings such excitement and richness to my life! The simple things in life are so beautiful to me. I love meeting new people. Welcome to my plant-based journey!

    This was great! I would say use firm tofu instead of soft tofu. The firm type will make your sauce creamier and thicker. Other than that, awesome recipe!

    This sounds AMAZING. There aren’t many meals I really miss after turning vegan, but I’d have to say that eggs benedict is #1 on my list. I can’t wait to make this!!

    This recipe and some others include nutritional yeast. What is the purpose for the addition of that item in the recipe? — and will the recipe be ruined if you don’t have nutritional yeast on hand? Thanks! 🙂

      Nutritional yeast adds a sort of “cheesy” flavor. You can leave it out if you’d like, but for this particular recipe, I posted a recipe without it, to make it easier for those who don’t want to use it. 🙂 You can click on my name and see the other recipes I’ve posted and you will find it there. 🙂 Enjoy!
