Devilled Eggs


    Devilled Eggs

    A yummy flashback to the 1950s.


    4 free-range eggs
    2 Tbsp (30 mL) low-fat mayonnaise
    1 Tbsp (15 mL) plain low-fat yogourt
    1 Tbsp (15 mL) red onion or fresh chives, minced
    2 tsp (10 mL) capers, rinsed and minced
    1/4 tsp (1 mL) freshly cracked pepper
    Sprinkle of paprika

    Tip: Eggs that have been in your fridge for about a week are the best eggs to hard-cook, and easier to peel too. Store hard-cooked eggs in the fridge for up to seven days.

    Place eggs in medium pot; cover with cold water and bring to a boil. Once water is boiling, cover pot, remove from heat, and let sit for 18 to 20 minutes. Drain water and run cold water over eggs to cool them.

    The night before the picnic, peel eggs. Rinse under cold water to make sure there isn’t a speck of shell left. Pat dry. Cut into halves. Remove yolk by gently popping it out.

    Place yolks in bowl and mash gently with a fork. Stir in mayonnaise, yogourt, onion or chives, capers, and pepper. Scoop out about 1/8 of the mixture and spoon into halved egg whites. Sprinkle with paprika.

    Place snugly in container with tight-fitting lid so eggs won’t slide around in transit. Store in fridge overnight and pack into an insulated cooler the day of the picnic.

    Makes 8 halves.

    Two halves contain:

    This Asian-inspired stir-fry takes full advantage of the crunch Brussels sprouts achieve when they’re heated quickly. The sweet-and-sour sauce delivers a tangy edge, and tempeh offers plant-based protein and a blast of umami. If you want meat in the dish, you can replace tempeh with ground pork. Ready, set, go Stir-frying is a cooking method that thrives on speed. That means you want to have all of your ingredients prepped and ready to go into the pan. That also means no chopping on the fly.
