Vegetarian Eggs Benedict

Eggs Benedict is a staple on breakfast and brunch menus across America. The classic Benedict made with ham or Canadian bacon, and smothered with buttery hollandaise sauce is only the beginning. From there, you can get as creative as you’d like! This vegetarian eggs Benedict with sautéed asparagus and mushrooms, and a much healthier version of hollandaise sauce, is a delicious way to get your brunch on. If asparagus and mushrooms aren’t your cup of tea, modify the toppings to your heart’s content. Additional ingredient options and their Portion Fix equivalents are included below.

  • 1 tsp. olive oil

Instructions :

  1. Heat oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.

  2. Add mushrooms; cook, stirring frequently, for 5 to 6 minutes or until mushrooms release liquid.

  3. Add asparagus; cook, stirring frequently, for 4 to 5 minutes, or until tender-crisp. Remove from heat. Set aside.
