Healthy Deviled Eggs with Hummus are the combination of two addictive appetizers. Creamy hummus and eggs come together in this recipe and make amazing appetizers without mayo or yogurt. They will disappear so fast that everyone will beg for more.
Simple Hummus Dip is my greatest weakness. I love it so much that I can even have it as a spread on my toasted bread in the morning. Never tried it? You have to give it a try if you are a savory person at breakfast. It’s the best snack during the day too. I’m the happiest person if there is a jar of leftover hummus in the refrigerator. That’s why, it’s no surprise I stuff eggs with hummus and make these healthy deviled eggs recipe as an alternative to our Mayo-Free Deviled Eggs, which is healthy as well.
Ingredients For Healthy Deviled Eggs
This recipe is basically hard boiled eggs with hummus, but I add a few more ingredients to make it even healthier and tastier. So the ingredients are as follows:
- Homemade hummus (please see its ingredients in the recipe below)
- Hard boiled eggs
- Hot chili powder
Okay you can use store-bought hummus to be quicker, but why don’t you make it at home when it is super easy and takes only 5 minutes? You only put chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice, water, olive oil and spices in a food processor and blend. Add extra water if needed and blend again. Taste, make adjustments like adding more tahini, lemon juice or salt and blend for the last time. It tastes way better when made at home like many other homemade foods. Plus you can always go creative by adding extra flavors in it such as avocado, roasted carrot, pumpkin or garlic.
Hard Boiled Eggs
Although I recommend fresh eggs in almost all recipes that contain eggs, I will suggest the opposite this time. Fresh eggs are not easy to peel, so they are not the best option when we need hard boiled eggs. It's better to use the eggs that are one or two weeks old. They are much easier to peel, so buy your eggs ahead of time.
You have probably seen several methods to make perfect hard boiled eggs. If you still have no idea how to do it in the right way, let me share my method, which I learnt from mom:
Place the eggs in a pot or saucepan in a single layer. Pour cold water over them so that the eggs are covered two inches of water. Add a pinch of salt in the saucepan to prevent the eggs from cracking. Heat the pot over medium high heat until it boils. Let it simmer for 5 minutes and remove from heat. Drain and pour cold water over the eggs to cool. You can easily peel them now.
Peel the eggs, slice them in half, transfer the yolks in a bowl and combine them with the prepared hummus.
Turmeric and Chili Powder
Season the mixture of hummus and yolks with turmeric and chili powder.
If you are following this blog for some time, you probably know that I love to hide turmeric in recipes when possible as I did in my Leek Fritters or Turmeric Tahini Dressing recipes. Nobody can notice turmeric in these healthy deviled eggs as its color matches perfectly with hummus and yolks. The filling on egg whites gets even more vibrant.
Besides turmeric, I add hot chili powder in the hummus filling here just to add a bit heat to the eggs. If you love hot appetizers as much as we do, you should add some hot chili powder in the the filling and sprinkle some extra on the completed deviled eggs! If you are not a fan though, leave it out.
What To Serve With Deviled Eggs
Salads are the best companion for deviled eggs. If you want to spoil yourself a bit because there is no mayo in this recipe, you can serve them with delicious Zesty Coleslaw Salad. If you still want to go light, make a bowl of fresh Chopped Turkish Salad.
What To Do With Leftover Deviled Egg Filling
I love to serve healthy deviled eggs with a bowl of leftover filling on the side, so don’t worry when the filling is more than needed for 7 eggs. Who doesn’t love to dip vegetable sticks into this amazingly creamy and super tasty deviled egg filling?
Another thing you can do is to store it covered in the refrigerator and use it as a spread in sandwiches or wraps the next day. I wouldn't keep it longer than this.
How Long Do Deviled Eggs Last?
I recommend eating these on the same day. Eating them within a few hours after they are made is the best. Not only do they get dry but they also become unsafe as they wait longer because hard-boiled eggs shouldn’t wait long. I wouldn’t store them longer than 24 hours even in the refrigerator.Print
