Veggie Benedicts

Prep: 15 minutes Cook: 5 minutes

Serves:2-4

Leave off the tomato for the "vegetable haters" and this could also become one of their favorites.

Ingredients

  • Sauce:
  • 1 cup cashew milk (recipe in Miscellaneous)
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp nutritional yeast powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/8 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/16 tsp turmeric
  • pinch of paprika
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch mixed with 2 tbsp cold water
  • Base:
  • 1 vine-ripened tomato
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 4 fat-free English muffin halves

Directions

Place the cashew milk in a saucepan. Add all the remaining ingredients and mix well with a whisk. Slowly bring to a boil, stirring constantly, until thickened and smooth. Set aside. (If you need to reheat this just before serving, do it slowly while stirring with a whisk.)

Slice the tomato into 4 medium-thick slices. Peel and slice the avocado. Toast the muffin halves. Place the tomato and the avocado on the English muffin halves. Ladle about 1/4 cup of the sauce over each muffin half and serve.

Hints: The sauce may be made 1 day ahead of time and slowly reheated. This saves time on a busy morning. The sauce is also great with asparagus, other vegetables or potatoes.
