At a loss for what to bring to your next party? My motto is always have a healthy option available during the holidays and this healthy appetizer is always happily received by the hosts. Here’s my latest creation, Avocado Wasabi Stuffed Eggs. It’s a delicious, new spin on the popular, but less heart-healthy, Deviled Eggs of the ’50’s.
Healthy appetizer options run slim at most gatherings. It’s no wonder most American’s gain an average of seven pounds between Thanksgiving and New Year’s. These are not just healthy, but filling so you’ll be less likely to mindlessly snack.
My motto is always have a healthy option available during holiday parties. Here’s my latest creation, Avocado Wasabi Stuffed Eggs. It’s a delicious, new spin on the popular, but less healthy, Deviled Eggs of the ’50’s.
I designed this recipe as part of my 3-2-1 healthy eating program, featured in my new book, Sacred Eating. It has the perfect balance of lean protein, complex carbohydrates and healthy fats to keep your blood sugar regulated. You could even eat this as a meal.
Instead of mayo, I use fresh avocados mixed with a little wasabi to give it a kick. To save time, I buy organic, pre-cooked and shelled eggs from Costco. It only takes about 20 minutes from there.
Be sure to scroll to the end where you will see I created a Nutrition Facts panel. I find it helpful knowing what I’m putting in my body and thought you might like that option too.
WHAT TO BUY:
- 12 Hardboiled organic eggs, shelled
- 1 Large avocado
- 1 Tablespoon Wasabi paste
- 1 Tablespoon Dijon mustard
- ½ Lemon, juiced
- Dash salt, to taste
- Optional: Garnish with fresh dill sprigs
WHAT TO DO:
- Cut eggs in half, lengthwise.
- Gently remove yolks and place in food processor.
- Add avocado, wasabi, Dijon and lemon and pulse until smooth.
- Add a small amount of salt and adjust to taste.
- Spoon the mixture back into the egg white halves with a spoon, or for an extra touch, use a small piping bag and decorative frosting tip. Or, make a small diagonal cut in the corner of a Ziplock bag and squeeze into the egg.
- These stuffed eggs taste delicious already, but if you like you can garnish with fresh dill, peas and a slice of marinated fish of your choice, such as tuna, salmon, sardines or herring.
