What to eat this weekend: Yummy green eggs royale

This healthy yet indulgent, gluten-free, dairy-free, paleo brekkie from Little Green Spoon is the ultimate brunch. Full of healthy fats and proteins and all the trimmings you’d expect from a good brunch dish. It’s an amazing way to start the day.

Green eggs royale
Serves 2

Ingredients

  • 10 spears of asparagus
  • 4-5 slices of smoked salmon
  • 1 avocado
  • 2 eggs

 

For the healthy Hollandaise

  • 2 egg yolks
  • juice of half a lemon
  • 3 tablespoons of coconut oil, melted


Method

  1. Boil your asparagus for a few minutes until they are bright green and snappy.
  2. Fill your blender with boiling water and pop the lid on while you prepare the rest. Plate your asparagus, layer on the smoked salmon and then half an avocado each.
  3. Pour the hot water out of the blender (this was just to heat up the blender). Add in the egg yolks and lemon juice and blitz until combined. Turn the speed on low and slowly add in the melted coconut oil so that the sauce starts to emulsify and thicken.
  4. Poach your eggs and then pop them on top of the avocado.
  5. Pour the hollandaise generously over everything and tuck in!
