Slideshow: Modern Variations on the Classics
- 1/2 very ripe medium Hass avocado, peeled and chopped
- 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
- Kosher salt
- Freshly ground pepper
- Poached eggs, for serving
- In a blender, combine the avocado and lemon juice with 1/3 cup of hot water. Puree until smooth and light in texture, about 2 minutes, scraping down the side of the bowl occasionally. With the machine on, drizzle in the olive oil and puree until combined. Season with salt and pepper. Serve the hollandaise over poached eggs.
