Winter has left us with dry and brittle hair, so it is time to start eating for beauty. We created this dish to show how eating healthy foods can help us improve the quality of our skin and hair, and allow us to radiate like the beautiful people we are. This dish is a twist on the classic eggs Benedict, but instead of the traditional hollandaise, we serve our poached eggs with a flaxseed sauce. Try it with our Roasted Sweet Potato Fries.
For the Sauce:
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tsp honey
1 tsp mustard
1 tablespoon yogurt
1 tablespoon ground flax seeds
2 tablespoons flaxseed oil
For the Dish:
2 sprouted whole grain English Muffins, split and toasted
4 cups loosely packed spinach
1 clove garlic
1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1 deep dish saute pan
2 teaspoons vinegar
Make the sauce by blending together all of the ingredients.
To prepare the dish, saute the spinach in the olive oil with the garlic.
Melt the mozzarella cheese on top of the toasted bread and keep warm.
Fill the pan with a few inches of water and bring to a bare simmer. Add the vinegar. Gently crack the eggs into custard cups or small bowls and gently drop into the water. Ever so carefully, stir the water over the eggs to make sure the heat is circulating in the pan. They will be in the pan for only 3 minutes or so. (Watch the video for further instructions).
While the eggs are finishing up poaching, quickly place the spinach on top of the toasted muffins. Transfer the eggs to the muffins and then top with the flax sauce.
