In this hollandaise recipe, we cut the fat in half, but with the help of some modernist ingredients, we’re still able to create a durable and delicious foam. The secret: we replace the egg yolks with lambda carrageenan, a tasteless, naturally occurring thickening agent that helps stabilize the sauce and create a velvety texture. Citric acid and champagne vinegar round out the flavor, so you can dress up your breakfast without blowing your diet.
