With Easter quickly approaching I wanted to share a fun and simple recipe for my take on deviled eggs…Superfood Easter Eggs! This is a great side or appetizer to offer at your Easter dinner.
I have only started eating “deviled eggs” in the last two years because I detest mayo. However, my mom started making them with Vegenaise a few years ago so I decided I would try hers. Being from Alabama, she used Wickles Sweet Pepper Relish. I kind of loved them but I also felt really guilty when I would eat them because I knew they were a splurge. I went on a mission to make up a recipe that would not only be delicious but would also feed my cells! Enter two fantastic ingredients: turmeric and cultured pickles.
Turmeric is getting lots of buzz these days for being a superfood spice. For absorption, you need to add black pepper. One of the ingredients in mustard is turmeric so adding an extra bit to these eggs is a great way to get this superfood boost. Read more about turmeric here.
I also replaced sugar and chemical- and dye- laden conventional pickle relish with cultured, fermented relish. I am reading an eye-opening book by Donna Gates called The Body Ecology, and am learning how to ferment my own foods. I have purchased The Perfect Pickler home fermenting kit. Since I am still researching how to pickle, I am still purchasing cultured veggies by Bubbies from my local Publix. I try to eat cultured veggies every day and this is a fantastic way to get more in!
**measurements yield 8 superfood eggs
Instructions: Start by peeling your hard boiled eggs and cutting in half length ways. Take the yolk out and place in a bowl. Combine yolks, mayo, mustard, dill relish, turmeric and black pepper and mix well. Spoon the mixture into the open egg halves. Sprinkle tiny amount of tumeric on top if desired. Enjoy!
Make more or less and add ingredients to taste. Dill would be a wonderfully beautiful addition to this recipe and if you cannot stand the thought of eating Angel Eggs without the sweet, play around with a little local honey or stevia (I use Nu Naturals) but add it to the relish and then add it to the yolk mixture.
Please let me know how you like or if you have other ways to take the devil out of the eggs!
