Classic eggs benedict but with a vegan hollandaise sauce without egg yolks or cream, but just as delicious! This english muffin, avocado, salmon and poached egg combo will make you feel like you’re eating fancy for breakfast!
This is one of those brunch dishes I always order when I’m out but haven’t made at home until now! Hollandaise usually contains cream and/or egg yolk so I recreated it without either. I used ghee, but you can also sub vegan butter!
Whenever I’m out at a brunch restaurant, I feel so fancy with an eggs benny but now I can feel that way from home! This combo is actually easier than you would expect! I made extras of the sauce so it would last several breakfasts!

I don’t think that Mayo is vegan – it contains eggs. (I am allergic to eggs.)
