Eggless Benedict with Hollandaise

BY : PUBLISHED : February 17th, 2021 UPDATED: October 19th, 2021

From the author, Miranda Rivera: 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 Eggless Benedict with Hollandaise recipe since I’ve been making it! Enjoy!

From Plant-Based on a Budget: Brace yourselves for a wonderful plant-based brunch recipe! These Eggless Benedict with Hollandaise Sauce are the closest thing you’ll find to a fancy hotel brunch experience while skipping the eggs. We should warn you though, the sauce is highly addictive and you might end up spending a considerable amount of time thinking of ways to include it in your regular meals.

Hollandaise Sauce

Hollandaise sauce is a brunch classic. This heavy and thick yellow sauce is usually made with egg yolk, melted butter, and lemon juice, and paired with eggs. It is very similar to mayonnaise but slightly runnier and it is usually served warm. This plant-based version is much healthier and lighter in comparison and you can enjoy it in so many delicious ways.

This Eggless Benedict with Hollandaise would be a perfect recipe to prepare for home brunch with friends and family. You can keep the rest of the sauce to eat with some roasted potatoes or baked tofu. So good!

Which Bread Should I Choose?

For this recipe, we used English breakfast muffins which, we have to admit, is a perfect choice. The flavor and fluffiness of the muffins give it a special breakfast touch, which is what we are after. Of course, if you don’t find them in your local grocery store you can try with any bun-shaped bread you find, or a simple sourdough sliced and toasted.

In this case, it is all in the sauce, hollandaise sauce that is!
