Healthier Deviled Eggs

Transform hard boiled eggs into a healthier deviled egg! Turmeric, cumin, and coriander add great flavor while healthy Greek yogurt adds smoothness and tang.

Growing up, I loved dyeing Easter eggs. Between my sister and I, we dipped and decorated at least a dozen eggs each. Luckily, my family liked eating hard boiled eggs, because as a child — I did not. As an adult, I enjoy the occasional hard boiled egg, but I don’t know what I would do with a whole batch of them.

Then, I had some really tasty deviled eggs while out with some friends in Brooklyn. They weren’t the traditional deviled eggs – they were made with some pickled shallots and didn’t seem very “mayonnaise-y”. This got me thinking — could I make a tastier, and healthier deviled egg?

The answer, of course, is yes. After a little experimentation, I landed on these spiced deviled eggs made healthier with greek yogurt. I love the combination of turmeric, coriander, and cumin — the flavors are both vibrant and warm. A dash of whole grain mustard gives these healthier deviled eggs their signature kick.

  1. Greek yogurt is a great alternative to mayo, isn’t it? I use turmeric a lot but would have never thought myself of adding it to deviled eggs. Great idea!

  2. Deviled eggs are one of my favorite foods. I can eat them year around and not just for holidays or special occasions. I love your take on these and the turmeric sounds like a good healthy addition.
