Paleo Coconut Curry Deviled Eggs

7 Apr


There is a tasty paleo potluck at The Foundry/Printer’s Row Crossfit today following everyone’s last attempt of 13.5 CrossFit games open workout. We’ve got some people bringing bacon maple meatballs from PaleOmg fruit platters, sweet potato hash, a Dominican dish called mangu (mashed plantains), and I’ll be bringing these tasty deviled eggs! I always like curry in my deviled eggs and in my chicken salad, but I wanted to take it all the way to the flavor zone of a real curry by using coconut oil and adding lime. My only afterthought is maybe I could have added tomato of some sort, but oh well. They’re delicious and you don’t have to make paleo mayo or use avocado, although you could 🙂

18 boiled eggs peeled, halved and deyolked
yolk of 18 eggs
4-5 Tbsp coconut oil
4-5 Tbsp olive oil
1 Tbsp fresh minced yellow onion
1 tsp basil
1 tsp tsp garlic powder (raw would be too overpowering)
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/2 tsp coriander
1/4 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp ginger
1/4 tsp turmeric
1/4 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp lime juice

I added everything but the egg whites to the food processor in batches and then added 6 egg white halves to bulk up the amount of filling. Desperate times call for desperate measures so I made a few attempts at making a piping bag out of a paper plate and a one gallon freezer bag. Not the best, but “worked”in a pinch. Fill remaining 30 egg white halves with filling. Sprinkle tops with a little basil and paprika, or if you’re bold, cayenne 🙂

And a tip if you’re transporting them- line the dish with paper towel so they don’t slide around.
