Matcha Eggs Benedict

Serves 4 (2 stacks per person)

This recipe is a twist on an old standard: eggs Benedict, healthy style. This “healthy hollandaise” sauce is made mostly of Greek yogurt, with a little lemon, touch of butter, and some Matcha for an unexpected kick.

Juice from 1 lemon (~ 3 tablespoons)

1 ½ teaspoons Aiya Cooking Grade Matcha

½ teaspoon garlic powder

½ teaspoon cumin

1 teaspoon honey

¼ teaspoon kosher salt

~¼ cup warm water

8 eggs

4 whole grain English muffins

Chives for garnish

Edible flowers for garnish, if desired (we used nasturtium flowers from our garden, only because we had them onhand)

 

Directions:

 

1.    Melt ¼ cup butter. In a bowl, mix together ¼ cup melted butter, 1 cup Greek yogurt, juice from 1 lemon (~ 3 tablespoons), 1 ½ teaspoons matcha, ½ teaspoon garlic powder, ½ teaspoon cumin, 1 teaspoon honey, and ¼ teaspoon kosher salt. Mix thoroughly to combine. Add warm water a few tablespoons at a time to thin out the sauce, up to ¼ cup.

2.    Poach 8 eggs. Toast 4 whole grain English muffins. Thinly slice the chives.

3.    To serve, place poached eggs on English muffin halves, drizzle with sauce and garnish with chives.
