Eggs Benedict

Here's a new twist on a brunch favorite: lighter Eggs Benedict, layered with lean ham, spinach and roasted tomatoes, all smothered in a velvety, slimmed-down sauce.

information

Eggs Benedict
  • Serves: 4
  • Prep. time: 20 minutes
  • Cook time:
  • Total time: Less than 30 Minutes
  • Syns per serving: ½*
    (*Add 6½ Syns if not using whole wheat bread as a Healthy Extra)

ingredients

  • 5oz/½ cup fat free plain yogurt
  • 2fl oz/¼ cup hot beef or vegetable bouillion
  • 1 tbsp very finely chopped chives
  • 1 tbsp very finely chopped parsley
  • 1 level tsp Dijon mustard
  • salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 1–2 tsp white wine vinegar
  • 4 eggs
  • 10oz young leaf or baby spinach
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 4 x 2oz slices of whole wheat toast
  • 8 slices of ham (all visible fat removed)
  • vine-roasted plum tomatoes, to serve

method

  1. Make the sauce by combining the first 7 ingredients in a food processor and blending until smooth. Season, set aside, and keep warm.
  2. Bring a large pan of lightly salted water to the boil. Stir in the vinegar, reduce the heat to a very gentle simmer, and carefully break the eggs into the water. Cover the pan and let the eggs poach on a very low heat for about 4 minutes. Remove from the heat and carefully transfer the eggs to a large bowl of cold water.
  3. Meanwhile, place the spinach, olive oil, and lemon juice in a nonstick pan and heat gently until the spinach is just wilted. Season to taste. To serve, place a slice of whole wheat toast on a warmed serving plate and top with the ham and spinach. Top each with a poached egg and spoon over the sauce. Serve immediately with vine-roasted plum tomatoes.
