Slow Carb Eggs Benedict with Roasted Cauliflower

I love smoked salmon on eggs benny instead of pemeal bacon because it cuts prep time to a point where eggs benedict (or florentine, or whatever you wanna call this creation) becomes a viable weekday breakfast. My eggs benny usually goes on an english muffin with a side of roasted potatoes, but since I’ve been on this 4 hour body Slow Carb diet, the muffin and the potatoes were out. So I replaced both with roasted cauliflower. I also added baby spinach sauteed with garlic.
I’m also usually content with the ‘instant’ powder hollandaise, but sadly that has corn starch, so I had to make from scratch. You can make a bunch and refridgerate it, you can microwave hollandaise too, just do it on low, and if it starts to look a little goopy whisk in a drop or two of cold water.
Now that you have a bunch of refridgerated cauliflower and hollandaise on hand, making this in the morning is a simple matter of poaching the egg, sauteeing a handful of spinach, microwaving the sauce and cauliflower . Total cook time is less than 10 minutes and you start your work day on a gourmet note.
