  4. Then add the garlic and season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Keep spinach warm over very low heat until serving.

  5. Bring a large pot with a few inches of water to a slight simmer. Add a dash of vinegar to the pot. Swirl the water with a spoon and gently roll in the cracked eggs.

  6. Let eggs poach in not-quite-boiling water for 2 to 3 minutes or until the whites of the eggs are set and the centers are still soft.

  7. Remove the eggs with a slotted spoon and let them drain on a few paper towels.

  8. Toast the English muffins. Blend the hollandaise sauce one final time to smooth it out.

  9. Top English muffins with sliced avocado, then spinach, and finally a poached egg. Right before serving, spoon hollandaise sauce over each Benedict and sprinkle with minced scallions.
