AtV Deviled Eggless Eggs
As I was doing research for fun recipes to recreate vegan and raw I came across this gorgeous recipe perfect for Easter! I hope you enjoy it as much as I did! Soooo tastey. addicted to veggies I thank you for this!
Makes roughly 2 dozen Deviled “Eggs”
Step 1. “Egg” Mixture
1/2 c Macadamia nuts
1/2 c soaked Cashews (soak for 6 to 8 hours)
1/2 c packed Zucchini – peeled and shredded
2 Tbsp Mustard – (Yellow or creamy Dijon)
1 to 2 tsp Date Paste //or// 1 Medjool Date – soaked in warm water for 10 minutes
2 tsp Onion powder
2 tsp Nutritional yeast
1/4 tsp Garlic Granules
1/4 tsp Kelp Granules
1 tsp Apple Cider Vinegar
Sea Salt to taste
1/2 c Water
In your food Processor Puree all of the above ingredients together until completely smooth. Your finished product/texture should look like this:
Whipped and creamy!
Fold into your Deviled “Egg mixture One or More of the following – TO TASTE:
Minced Red Onion
I only added Pickle Relish for the sake of tradition and simplicity.
Step 2. “Egg” Shells
Traditional Deviled Eggs call for hardboiled eggs whites to hold the magnificent filling. In my “testing” I’ve found that Yellow Crookneck Squash when peeled has a very similar texture, and a lovely mild sweet flavor. It holds up wonderfully as the “egg shell” for the deviled mixture!
This is the tricky part – because I can’t tell your exactly how many Crookneck Squash you will need, but I can tell you that they must be uniform in size, and the less “crookneck” the better:
Peel your Squash, and cut off the ends and crooknecks. Remembering to keep them uniform is size, seen above.
Slice each Squash in half, like so:
Using a Mandolin or a very sharp knife slice from the inside of your Squash out to less than a 1/4” thickness:
At the end of slicing you might have some reject nubs of squash – enjoy them as a snack as you continue slicing!
Once you’ve sliced all of the Squash that you need (roughly 2 dozen slices) proceed with topping them with your Deviled “Egg” mixture!
Garnish with Paprika (Spanish Smoked Paprika would also be dreamy for this) and serve immediately to your loving friends and family.
