These incredible egg hors d'oeuvres make a perfect anytime snack. I bought these bag of sweet red peppers on sale and found some beautifully neat ideas to blend in the red pepper in variety of dishes
Most of egg's nutrition is in its yolk, so blend it in together with the chick peas. The mellow sweet flavor of roasted red peppers totally enhances taste and appeal of plain hummus.
2 red bell peppers
2 cups cooked or canned chickpeas.
2 cloves garlic
3 tablespoon Tahini sauce
1/2 a lemon
1/4 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
6 Organic hard boiled eggs
To Roast red peppers ,Char the pepper on high heat in a broiler or grill.Turn occasionally with tongs, until skins are blackened, 15 to 20 minutes. Allow to cool then peel and deseed the pepper.
Remove shell from boiled eggs.Cut each egg in half, do not discard the yolks, blend in with chick peas.
To make the red pepper hummus , smoothly blend roasted peppers with all the ingredients(including egg yolks) in a high power food processor until creamy .Start without adding water then slowly pour in the Oil and lime juice
Fill each half of the boiled egg with the prepared red pepper hummus.Top each egg with chopped red peppers and herbs.
Can you guess the herb used to garnish these deviled eggs?
