Homemade Hollandaise Sauce
This homemade hollandaise sauce is made with only a handful of ingredients and it’s so simple that there’s really no need to buy hollandaise sauce from the shop ever again. Especially not with all the added preservatives! My top tip would be to make enough to fill an old hollandaise jar full and just keep it in the fridge. It will last for a few weeks so there’s no need to just make enough for one meal unless you fancy making it every time of course!
So, what makes this hollandaise sauce low sugar, I hear you cry!
Well because we’re not making hollandaise to sit on a shelf for weeks or months on end, we don’t need to add preservatives. Often, sugar is used as a preservative so if you look at a jar of hollandaise sauce, you’ll often see that it does actually contain quite a lot of sugar. Well because we’re just using fresh ingredients, that gets rid of the need to add sugar at all. Because hollandaise sauce is made out of just eggs, butter, lemon juice, vinegar and chilli powder, there’s absolutely no sugar in it at all. And it tastes SO MUCH BETTER than the shop bought stuff too!
Right, let’s get started! For this recipe you’ll need a whisk, two pans, measuring jug, kitchen scales and a heat proof bowl too!
Don’t forget to give us a like on facebook and twitter… and you can find further recipes on the blog too. Why not try this simple greek yoghurt dip to keep in the fridge too? Keeping a fridge full of oils and dips makes cooking so much easier as you can quickly jazz up even the most simple dish.
