We tell people all the time – with a little preparation, it’s easy to be vegan. For example, why not take some fully plant-based snacks and sides with you when heading to a BBQ or picnic? This way, you can enjoy time with friends and family without feeling hangry and left out! We love taking these vegan deviled “eggs” (made from potatoes) with us and sharing them around. That way, you can show everyone that vegans eat delicious food too!
The Devil is in the Details
Deviled eggs pop up as a side dish all the time. Sure, they taste good – but the whole “egg” part is a major turnoff! Not only is egg production nasty for the chickens, but there’s growing evidence that even a single egg is bad for you. Luckily we have the perfect solution – deviled potatoes!
“New” or “Baby” potatoes are the ideal size and shape for making vegan deviled eggs. They also have thin skin, meaning no peeling is necessary. In our opinion, potatoes are an even better partner for the (vegan) mayo in the deviled filling. In other words, our deviled potatoes are the vegan upgrade to old-fashioned egg-based recipes.
Are Potatoes Nutritious?
People often misunderstand the poor potato. It’s not just an empty starch bomb! Potatoes have a lot of vitamin B6 and C. They also have a bunch of minerals, including copper, potassium, phosphorus, and manganese. There is also a surprising amount of fiber for a vegetable that seems so simple!
How to Make Potatoes into Vegan Deviled Eggs
These morsels are very easy to make. It’s as simple as boiling the potatoes until they’re tender. Then, cut them in half and scoop out the middle like a “yolk.” To make the filling, mash up the scooped potato with vegan mayo, mustard, and turmeric. Finally, load this filling back into the hollow you made in the baby potatoes and garnish with smoked paprika and chives. Delicious!
If you want to mix up the flavors a bit, you can also make deviled potatoes in the curried style popular in Australia and the UK. Just swap the turmeric and paprika for curry powder.
If you want these to taste a little closer to eggs, you can also add some “black salt.” This is an interesting seasoning that adds an egg-like flavor to a dish.
We hope you enjoy these vegan deviled potatoes as a kinder, healthier alternative to eggs. If you try this recipe, please let us know what you think with a rating and comment. Every bit of feedback helps make the blog even better.Print
