Added bliss for brocolli and more

Just made this yummy bearnaise sauce, with waaaay less butter than traditional. It’s especially great if you are just starting to develop your taste for veggies.

Beyond Bliss Bearnaise

Use this yummy sauce to blissify just about anything.

1/4 cup     white wine vinegar – I used cooking wine so as not to be tempted by the rest of the bottle = )
1/4 cup     dry white wine
1 Tblsp      minced shallots
To taste     salt and pepper
3                   egg yolks (beaten)
1/2 Tblsp   unsalted butter (room temp)
2 Tblsp        minced fresh tarragon – I substituted rosemary and that was just as good


  1. Combine all ingredients except butter & egg yolks in saucepan.
  2. Bring to boil and reduce by about 1/2.
  3. Place reduced mixture over boiling water ala double boiler (upper pan should not touch water).
  4. Stirring rapidly & constantly, add eggs and butter, and cook until thickened.

Don’t overcook, but if it gets too thick add a couple tablespoons hot tap water. Makes about 3/4 cup (twelve 1-tablespoon servings).

Why is it good? The tangy bite in the sauce livens up even the most boring good-for-you-veggie, and the recipe has waaaaay less butter than traditional.
