Best Deviled Eggs (with a plant-based twist)

It wasn’t until we moved to Brooksville, Florida, that I ever thought of having a farm.Yet the idea wasn’t too farfetched for our small country town—so we went with it.

Now we have five hens that lay eggs daily and follow us around the yard!

The best deviled eggs

Deviled eggs were a tradition in my home growing up, but over the years I fell out of love with mayonnaise. That’s why I went into the recipe lab to come up with what I believe is the best deviled egg recipe in existence! Plus, it includes a plant-based twist.

This recipe uses hummus as a mayonnaise replacement, making it more flavorful and boosting the protein content.

    I really like this recipe and because it’s hummus it’s very filling. I didn’t feel the need to add extra salt but I did add a bit of Greek seasoning in some of them. It does make a lot using 8 tablespoons of hummus for 6 large eggs, probably just right for humble but that just meant more filling in each one. Thanks, I will definitely do this again.
