Vegan Deviled eggs are a delicious southern classic. A great appetizer for small or large gatherings; everything from Easter brunch, a great cold summer snack, a baby shower, to a good super bowl or Christmas party.
A combination of a few simple ingredients including vegan hard boiled eggs, vegan mayo, dijon mustard and Kala Namak Black salt (for an eggy flavor). That’s it. Along with a little sprinkle of paprika for that extra pop of flavor and color.
“The word deviled, in reference to food, was in use in the 18th century… it came to be used most often with spicy or zesty foods, including eggs prepared with mustard, pepper or other ingredients stuffed in the yolk cavity.”
Deviled eggs are a classic southern recipe and perfect for the holidays, Easter or other gatherings. Vegan Hard Boiled Devil eggs are said to have originated in Rome. But the earliest known American recipe for deviled eggs was said to have been printed in the Montgomery Advertiser in Alabama.
These egg alternatives also make a great substitute for hard-boiled eggs on the Military diet plan, the Daniel Fast since it restricts items that are animal products like meat, fish, eggs and dairy or a great addition to a vegan breakfast.
