Do you fancy a different kind of Hollandaise? Jamie Oliver gives the classic sauce an unexpected twist. Here is the recipe with guaranteed success
The classic hollandaise is an emulsion based on egg yolk, clarified butter and flavored liquid. It is one of the more heavy sauces and is often served with asparagus or fish dishes. But the whole thing can also be done with lower calories! Jamie Oliver has invented a recipe for avocado hollandaise that tastes wonderfully light and aromatic – and it is guaranteed to succeed!
- 2 spring onions
- 1 Bio-Zitrone
- 1 teaspoon red wine vinegar
- Half a bunch of tarragon
- 1 very ripe avocado
- 1 egg yolk (size L)
- Sea salt, black pepper
- Clean the spring onions. Roughly chop the green part of the spring onions and finely slice the white part.
- Put the green part of the spring onions in a small saucepan. Then squeeze in the juice of one lemon half.
- Add red wine vinegar, a pinch of sea salt and a little black pepper as well as 100 ml of water and bring everything to a boil.
- In the meantime, pluck half of the tarragon leaves and place in a blender. Halve the avocado, remove the stone and put the pulp in the blender as well. Then add the egg yolks.
- Now pour the hot spring onion mixture from the pot into the blender and mix everything until the sauce has a smooth, creamy consistency.
To serve, decorate the avocado hollandaise with white spring onion slices and the remaining tarragon leaves.
This is how low-calorie hollandaise works
Tip: Feel free to experiment with the herbs. In addition to tarragon, basil, parsley, mint or marjoram also give the hollandaise a special touch.
