Portobello Eggs Benedict

Have you ever noticed how most of our favorite breakfast dishes center around a grain+gluten filled item?

Breakfast is notoriously a high-carb, low protein meal, which sets you up for a day filled with poor food choices.

So, rather than go with the high-carb flow, start your day off with this Portobello Eggs Benedict – where a marinated and roasted Portobello mushroom cap is used to replace the English muffin.

Think of it as a modern, fitness-friendly version of Eggs Benedict that will keep you on track with your results. Enjoy!

What You Need


Serves 4

For the Marinade:

  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 Tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 Tablespoon minced shallot
  • sea salt and black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil

For the Creamy Mustard Sauce

  • 2 Tablespoons coconut cream
  • 1 Tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh chives, minced
  • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon water

For the Benedicts

  • 4 Portobello mushrooms
  • 1 teaspoon white vinegar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup baby spinach

Instructions

1. In a medium bowl whisk together the marinade ingredients. Wash the mushrooms and remove the stems. Place the mushrooms in a ziplock bag with the marinade for 30 minutes, flipping halfway through.

2. In a medium bowl combine the mustard sauce ingredients. Mix until creamy then store in the fridge.

3. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Lightly grease a rimmed baking sheet with olive oil. Place the marinated mushrooms on the pan and bake for 20 minutes, flipping halfway through.

4. In a large saucepan, bring 2 inches of water to a simmer (not a boil!) Add the vinegar. One at a time, crack the eggs into a cup and gently slip into the water. Simmer for 2-3 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to remove the eggs.

5. Plate each benedict by topping a Portobello with spinach, a poached egg and a dollop of creamy mustard sauce. Enjoy!
