Healthy Deviled Eggs

Deviled Eggs or Deviled Eggs Recipe

It is every morning fare at our place, especially in winters. Me and my twin sons eat boiled eggs sans the yolk. They way they don't like the yolk reminds me of my childhood and how even I used to hate the yolk in boiled eggs. Well, it is a good thing as by not eating yolk we are avoiding FAT. But then all white becomes bland.

Deviled Eggs is something that came to my mind and I have seen to so many variations of Deviled Eggs. I actually did not want to create the same thing but wanted to see if I can do something new and make it healthy as well.

Deviled Eggs can be traced back to ancient Rome. Traditionally, they are served cold. Hard boiled eggs are cut into half lengthwise. Yolk is removed and then crumbled and mixed with mayonnaise and mustard or other ingredients and then stuffed back.

But as the name I gave, my Deviled Eggs are healthy and a fusion of European and Lebanese fare. I stuffed them with Hummus in 3 different variations. Not only it makes the the eggs to colorful but also variety of flavor adds the interest and it is super healthy.

Lets see how the recipe goes.

Recipe
Ingredients:

  1. 4 hard boiled eggs.
  2. Hummus. Find the recipe here.
  3. Red Bell Pepper.
  4. Spinach

Now we are using Hummus which already has a lot of flavor so we will not be adding additional salt or any other spice. If you feel the Hummus that you have made has less salt, just sprinkle some salt on top or add more salt in Hummus as with the boiled eggs it might taste bland. Make it as per your taste.


Method:
  1. First of all, lets prepare the variations of Hummus.
  2. Divide Hummus into 3 equal parts. First variation is basic Hummus.
  3. Second variation will be with Red Bell Pepper. For this, dice Red bell pepper into small size and grill on Grill Pan or just sear them in a pan to remove the rawness.
  4. Then finely chop them.
  5. Add them to second portion of Hummus. Mix it well. Your second variation is ready.
  6. For 3rd variation, Blanch few spinach leaves.
  7. Finely chop them and saute in a pan for 2-3 minutes.
  8. Make a paste of sauteed spinach.
  9. Add to 3rd portion of Hummus and mix well.
  10. Now, cut the hard boiled eggs into half lengthwise. Take out the yolk. You may discard it or can use it for some other purpose.
  11. Stuff the three variations of Hummus in boiled eggs and serve. I would recommend serving it cold because Hummus tastes really delicious when it is cold.
