Eggs Benedict is one the most luxurious breakfast or brunch recipes. Here’s a recipe that ups the nutrients and makes it even more delicious at the same time.



Hollandaise Sauce

  • 2 tablespoon grass-fed butter or ghee
  • 2 egg yolks
  • ¼ teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ tablespoon water

Eggs Benedict

  • 1 bunch asparagus (16 pieces)
  • 12 teaspoons coconut or avocado oil
  • ¼ large tomato, sliced
  • ½ avocado, sliced
  • 2 eggs, poached
  • chives, chopped
  • sourdough or Ezekiel bread, toasted (optional)


  1. For the Hollandaise sauce, in a small sauce pan, melt the butter or ghee over medium-low heat.
  2. Add all the ingredients into a high-powered blender until well combined.
  3. In a medium-size frying pan over medium heat, add coconut or avocado oil.
  4. Add the asparagus to the frying pan and pan fry until for tender, about 8–10 minutes.
  5. In a small pot, bring 2–3 cups of water to a boil.
  6. Once boiling, gently lower the eggs into the water and allow to boil for 3 minutes. Remove the eggs once finished and set them aside for assembly.
