I know deviled eggs are mostly considered as Easter food, but it would be unfair to make these only for one occasion. Don’t you think they make super party food at any time? I’m sure everyone will be really happy to have them at potlucks. We love them at breakfast too. Not only in the morning. I mean they are great when we have breakfast for dinner during weeknights. Super easy to prepare, super tasty and nutritious. Do you like having breakfast for dinner? We either make Turkish Eggs Cilbir or deviled eggs without mayo whenever we don’t feel like cooking a heavy meal during weeknights.
How To Make Deviled Eggs Without Mayo
The classic recipe for deviled eggs mostly call for mayonnaise, but I wanted to make a healthier version so that we could eat as many as we wanted. Deviled eggs with Greek yogurt make a great alternative to that classic recipe.
First, cook the eggs. To do this, place the eggs in a sauce pan, pour cold water over them. Add in a pinch of salt and bring it to boil. Simmer for 5 minutes and remove from heat. Transfer them into a bowl with cold water and peel.
Second, halve the eggs and remove the yolks. Put them in a bowl. Just because I love yolks, I add an extra yolk in the bowl. But this is completely my personal taste.
Third, prepare the filling. Sprinkle salt, cumin and black pepper over the yolks. Add in olive oil, mustard, Greek yogurt, parsley and lemon or lime juice. Mix well with a fork.
Fourth, share the filling into egg whites using a teaspoon.
Finally, garnish each with diced red bell pepper and chopped parsley.
Notes On This Deviled Egg Recipe Without Mayo
To add a little more flavor to these deviled eggs, I add a little lemon juice and mustard. They give a good tanginess to the eggs.
As for the spices, I just use cumin and black pepper in the filling. I don’t want my deviled eggs too spicy because I love to feel that creaminess rather than spices.
I saw deviled egg recipes that use chopped onion in the filling, but I don’t want to deform the creaminess. I sometimes serve onions along with the eggs. Also, if you love some heat, it’s a good idea to use some green chili peppers for garnish. Some fresh arugula or other herbs on the side complete the serving wonderfully.
I’m sorry this recipe is not for you if you are looking for deviled eggs with mayo, but believe me these are equally tasty and you can never know whether you love them unless you try. And believe me you will never want to use mayonnaise again once you taste these deviled eggs without mayo or sour cream.
