Avo Benny

It's all in the sauce. Here I turn the basic creamy Hollandaise into something completely unexpected using black salt, kala namak, for the egginess that is expected with a benedict. 

Course Breakfast
Servings 2 people


  • 1/4 cup cashew cream
  • 1/2 tsp kala namak
  • 1/2 tsp nooch
  • 3 shakes turmeric
  • 3 dashes ume plum vinegar
  • 1 tsp water (or more, enough to make it pourable)


Eggy Hollandaise Sauce

  1. Whisk all of the ingredients together. Taste and adjust seasonings.

  2. My basic cashew cream recipe is 1 cup cashews just covered with filtered water in the Vitamix and blended until smooth, adding a bit more water until it is the perfectly smooth creamy texture of cream. It tends to thicken up in the refrigerator so I don’t worry if it seems too thin at first. Also, I don’t season it until I am ready to use it so I can turn it into anything I want. Salad dressings, sweet cream, sour cream, and, of course, hollandaise sauce.
