This Keto Low-Carb Hollandaise Sauce is a rendition of the original French version.  Once called Dutch sauce, Hollandaise sauce is an emulsion of egg yolks, melted butter, and lemon juice.  Some chefs add Dijon mustard for zesty appeal. Others prefer lime to lemon juice for a slightly different taste.

You can enjoy Keto Low-Carb Hollandaise Sauce in a variety of ways, such as:

  • Over broccoli
  • Over asparagus
  • Drizzled over poached salmon (add dill or tarragon)
  • Over Eggs Benedict
  • Over chicken breasts (add morel mushrooms to the sauce)
  • On French toast
  • In Crab Imperial (instead of using mayo)

Keto Low-Carb Hollandaise sauce can also be a base ingredient for other sauces like:

  • Béarnaise sauce: Hollandaise Sauce with white wine, tarragon, vinegar, and peppercorns.
  • Charon Sauce: This is a tomato spiked Hollandaise Sauce. Made of Hollandaise sauce plus fresh tarragon and tomato paste (or purée). Can be served over steak, eggs, chicken, or vegetables.
  • Foyot Sauce: Make the Béarnaise sauce from the Hollandaise sauce and added glacé de viande (reduced brown stock) to serve over steak
  • Maltaise Sauce: This is a blood orange Hollandaise sauce (juice and rind of blood oranges). Can be served in Eggs Florentine or Eggs Benedict or over asparagus.
  • Mousseline Sauce: This is a Hollandaise sauce with whipped cream. It is often served with meat, seafood, and fish.

HOW DO YOU FIX BROKEN KETO LOW-CARB HOLLANDAISE SAUCE?

The key to making a successful Keto Low-Carb Hollandaise Sauce is hot butter!

In making this sauce the hot butter is emulsified into the egg yolks and lemon juice. The butter must be hot and added in a steady stream. If the butter is not hot enough or added in this steady stream, the sauce can separate. If this happens, no need to worry. You can slowly add boiling water, whisking constantly to get the right consistency.  Or try adding an extra egg yolk.

While the blender is going (or you are whisking), add the yolk plus a teaspoon of boiling water to the blender until the sauce is creamy.

WHAT IS THE NUTRITIONAL VALUE OF KETO LOW-CARB HOLLANDAISE SAUCE?

I remember the ‘fat free’ 90s when egg yolks were considered the bad guys.  Well, not anymore.  Egg yolks are super healthy, especially when following a Keto lifestyle or diet.

Pasture-raised egg yolks are known to be a great source of nutrition and are higher in certain nutrients compared to conventional eggs. They are rich in vitamins A, D, E, and K2, as well as omega-3 fatty acids, which are essential for brain function and heart health. In fact, pasture-raised egg yolks contain up to six times more vitamin D than conventional eggs.

Vitamin D helps regulate calcium and phosphorus levels in the body, which are important for bone health. Additionally, pasture-raised egg yolks are rich in choline, which is important for brain and nervous system function, and also helps reduce inflammation. Overall, pasture-raised egg yolks are a great source of essential nutrients and can be a healthy addition to your diet.

This is a rich and creamy Keto Low-Carb Hollandaise Sauce with a hint of tanginess from the lemon.

WHAT NON-ALC WINE HARMONIZES WITH KETO LOW-CARB HOLLANDAISE SAUCE?

This rich, creamy Keto Low-Carb Hollandaise Sauce is the ideal partner for a big, white, non alcoholic wine like de-alcoholized Chardonnay..  The non-alc wine’s creaminess will partner well with the creaminess of this sauce.  The wine’s acidity will also nicely sing with the slight tanginess of the sauce from the fresh lemon.

Zero Alcohol Wine Tips:

ALCOHOL AND KETOSIS:

To support your Keto diet or low-carb lifestyle, opt for quality, non-alcoholic wines that are low-carb and low in sugar. Additionally, alcohol does not align with a keto diet or low-carb lifestyle. Moreover, your liver processes alcohol before nutrients, pausing ketone creation and slowing the ketosis process. Furthermore, your body will metabolize alcohol as fuel before utilizing food, which can decelerate fat burning and may lead to the storage of carbs, fat, and protein as excess body fat. Moreover, alcohol consumption stimulates the appetite, potentially causing overeating.

ALCOHOL AND HEALTH:

Did you know that when you consume alcohol, your liver has to work extra hard to break it down? This can result in damage to your liver. Furthermore, it can elevate your risk of health issues such as inflammation and cancer, particularly with heavy consumption. Additionally, alcohol can disrupt your blood sugar levels, leaving you feeling dehydrated and disrupting your body’s normal functions.

NON-ALCOHOLIC WINE AND HEALTH BENEFITS:

Non-alcoholic wines with minimal carbs and sugar are advantageous for your health. They not only aid in weight management, blood sugar control, and hydration but also contain essential nutrients and antioxidants from grapes that can decrease your risk of health conditions like heart disease. Consequently, since they lack alcohol, they’re ideal for socializing without any adverse effects, promoting feelings of happiness and reduced stress.
