Vegan Eggs Benedict-A Hollandaise Sauce to Blow Your Mind!
I am so excited to bring this recipe to you today! I’ve used this vegan hollandaise sauce so many times as part of a delicious big breakfast! Use this sauce to top toasted english muffins, veggie ham and fried tofo! Just like that you have a cruelty free, easy benny!
The extra special ingredient we need to make this vegan hollandaise sauce just like the real deal is Himalayan Black Salt (amazon link)-also known as Kala Namak. This salt is traditionally used in Indian Cuisine, and its really special because it mimics the sulfur taste and smell of egg. This is my secret ingredient to anything egg! Its AMAZING and a complete asset in the vegan kitchen!

For the Hollandaise Sauce:
- 2 tbsp all purpose flour
- 2 tbsp vegan butter I used vegan Becel
- 1 cup silk soy milk or other plant based milk except coconut
- 1 lemon, squeezed
- 1/2 tsp onion powder
- 1 tbsp nutritional yeast
- 3/4 tsp Himalayan Black Salt Kala Namak or, to taste
- 1/2 tsp tumeric for colour
- lemon pepper to taste or sub black pepper
For the Eggs Benedict:
- 1/2 block extra firm tofu
- 16 slices veggie ham ~ 1 package, divided I used Yves brand
- 4 english muffins, toasted
- vegan butter To spread on the english muffins
- smoked or sweet paprika to serve
- onion powder
- nutritional yeast
To Make the Hollandaise Sauce:
Place a small sauce pan over medium heat
Melt your Vegan butter in the pan
Add the flour and whisk until there are no lumps
slowly add in your vegan milk, whisking so the mixture does not lump
once the mixture has thickened, whisk in your squeezed lemon juice, salt, onion powder, tumeric and lemon pepper.
remove from the heat and set aside until your other ingredients are ready to be topped
For the Eggs Benedict:
place a frying pan over meduim heat and add in vegan butter to coat the pan
Slice your tofu into 8 pieces and sprinkle each side with salt, onion powder, pepper and nutritional yeast
Add your tofu to the hot pan and fry for about 3-4 minutes a side.
When you flip your tofu the first time add in your veggie ham to the pan to warm up.
Toast your english muffins and butter.
Asseble with each half of a toasted and buttered english muffin side by side then topped with two slices of veggie ham and one slice of tofu for each muffin half. Top your two halves with the hollandaise sauce, sprinkle with paprika and serve!
I have tried this recipe using a softer tofu to mimic a softer egg, however I found it more difficult to work with than the extra firm tofu.Â
If you have time to plan this recipe ahead, your tofu would benefit from being sliced and marinated in the spices anywhere from 1/2 an hour to overnight to really up the flavour!
I’ve really enjoyed this topped with smoked paprika, but its not for everyone, so simply sub a sweet paprika instead if the smoky flavour is a little much for youðŸ˜‰
I really hope you guys give this recipe a try. it’s totally worth finding the Himalayan Black salt-I promise. I just ordered mine from amazon, but I bet some Indian grocery stores, or specialty spice stores would have it if you have access to these!
