Chicks in a Curry, hummus deviled eggs

Replacing mayonnaise with hummus in my deviled eggs base left me with a smooth but sturdy filling.  The sweet curry powder helps to brighten up the flavor.  These deviled eggs are the wiser, more exotic cousin from the East of the traditional American picnic fare.

Yield: 12 servings; Prep Time: 20 minutes; Cook Time: 15 minutes

  • 1 dozen large eggs
  • 8 Tbsp Sabra Roasted Garlic Hummus
  • 2 tsp worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tsp sweet curry powder
  • (optional) paprika and roasted chick peas
  1. Place eggs in a single layer in a large saucepan and cover completely with water.  Place over high heat and bring to a rolling boil.
  2. Remove pan from heat and cover tightly with a lid as soon as the water reaches a boil.  Set covered pan aside for 15 minutes.
  3. Immediately after 15 minutes have passed, use tongs to carefully move the boiled eggs to a bowl of ice water.  Allow to cool completely, at least 5 minutes.
  4. Dry and peel eggs, removing shells completely.
  5. Slice each egg in half lengthwise.  Scoop yolks into a medium bowl.
  6. Add remaining ingredients to the yolks and mash with a fork until well combined.
  7. Use a spatula to move filling into a piping bag or a small plastic bag with the corner cut off.  Pipe filling into whites.  These eggs have more filling than a typical recipe but that is part of what makes them so fun.
  8. Top with paprika and/or roasted chick peas if desired.
