Easy Enzyme-rich Hollandaise Sauce


This is great over vegetables or poached eggs. It’s made in a blender so it goes together quickly. Try it for a special breakfast!



  1. Gently heat butter over low heat in a small saucepan until just melted. (Do not boil.) Set aside.
  2. Place egg yolks in a blender container. Add lemon juice and salt. Blend together briefly, then drizzle in melted butter as blender is running on low-medium speed. When mixture has thickened, add the starter culture and pulse briefly. Use immediately or allow to sit at room temperature for 6 to 8 hours to lacto-ferment (only if you are using pastured egg yolks; if not, refrigerate promptly). Makes about 1 cup of sauce or enough to cover 6 poached eggs. Store any leftovers in the refrigerator and reheat in a double boiler, being careful to heat only until just warmed through.
