Wanted to kick off the year with a recipe that I’ve been dreaming about creating ever since my trip to New York City last November. I tried turmeric eggs for the first time at De Maria and my life was changed. You know- it was one of those moments where I was like, “umm…. why haven’t I thought of this before??”.


So here we are, back in the studio at the start of the year and all I wanted was an insanely delicious breakfast bowl. With turmeric eggs.


I asked ya’ll what you would have in your dream bowl, and the inspiration led to this incredible savory breakfast bowl with vegan hollandaise sauce and turmeric poached eggs! As with any bowl, you can add or omit whatever you like, but I must say – the ingredients I pulled together for this dish turned out absolutely delicious. I wouldn’t go without any part!
