Curried Deviled Eggs

Yesterday was National Deviled Egg Day. I made a batch and took it to my women’s group to taste test before posting it. After the women tasted the eggs, Mary Ann reminded me that it would be less dry with (wet) mustard, so now the recipe seems right. (Mustard is also in the dry curry powder, so you don’t need much. More to moisten than to add flavor.) Thanx, Mary Ann.

Utensils: 2 qt. saucepan for eggs, cutting board and knife, small bowl, serving platter
Cooking Time: about 25 minutes
Prep. Time: About 10 minutes
Categories: Vegetarian, no sugar added, GF, no dairy

Ingredients

5 or 6 organic eggs, hardboiled and peeled
1- 2 tbl. macadamia or other oil (or mayonnaise)*
1-2 tsp. curry powder
1/2-1 tsp. mustard (not powder)
salt & pepper to taste
sprouts, chives, parsley for garnish

Directions

1. If you buy hard boiled eggs (now available in stores), the cooking time is eliminated. To boil at home, place 5 or 6 organic eggs in a 2 qt. saucepan filled with water. Bring to a boil, cook for 5 more minutes and then shut off and let sit a few minutes. Remove, cool, and peel.

2. Cut eggs in half lengthwise of crosswise. Remove yolk and place in a small bowl. Start with one tablespoon oil or mayonnaise and 1/2 tsp. mustard (salt & pepper to taste) and mash with yolks. Add more of each as needed to make the yolks creamy. (This depends on the number if eggs, size of eggs, and your preferences.)

3. Fill each half with the mixture and garnish with parsley, chives, sprouts—one, two or all. Place on a platter and serve chilled.

Serves 6-8 people, depending on number of eggs and whether it is a solitary appetizer or part of a grouping.

* Feel free to use your own recipe with mayonnaise and just add curry powder to taste. I am not a fan of mayo, so I don’t keep it in the house, altho I found a recipe online using lemon juice, so I may try make that recipe that soon.
