A friend of mine likes to have the same vegan dishes as the non-vegan ones she's making, when she has parties or whatever. (We made yummy donuts once!)

So she wants to make devilled eggs.

The question she posed to me, and that I bring to you:

How would we make vegan devilled "eggs"?

She figured, tofu with mustard, paprika, spices etc for the "yolk" section, shaped with a melon baller.. and I think that'd work..

but we're not too sure about the egg-shaped outer egg white part portion?

I was thinking marinate some tofu so it's got some flavor (of what?? LMAO!) and then just try to shape it.. but I dunno??

Ideas???

*giggle*

That'd be my best guess! Hee! :p If you two do find something that works, I'd be curious to know.

Hmm... how about some silken tofu, blended until smooth along with agar, then you could put it in those molds that they use to make chocolate eggs and maybe that would work?

For the yellow parts you could use Tofu Mate's eggless salad mix to flavor it. It's really yummy! I think you could get creative and carve extra firm silken tofu into the egg white shapes and use the 'left over' tofu to mix up the yellows. Hmmm, now I want to try that! :D

Well I gotta say, those crazy folks at VB sure know how to find recipes!! Here's what they linked me to and also showed me.

Mock Deviled Eggs

"egg mixture"
1 Can of chickpeas
4 oz firm tofu
1 Tablespoon Dijon Mustard
1/2 cup vegenaise

1 pickle or a bit of relish
3Tablesjpoons diced onion
1 or 2 garlic cloves
1 Tablespoon vegetable boullion
2 Tablespoons minced fresh parsley
a bit of dill, oregana, or other dried herbs that you prefer
pinch of termeric
paprika for dusting the tops of the "eggs"

For the mock egg whites
16 oz extra firm tofu, pressed to remove water (this is essential)

Put the first four ingredients into a bowl and mix thoroughly with a hand blender or in a food processor. Then add the remaining ingredients and chill for up to a few hours.

While the mixture is chilling, break the rest of the tofu into small crumbles. Get out a muffin pan and spray lightly with some oil. Using your hands, press the tofu firmly into the muffin tray to make the shape of an egg white. The bottom of each individual muffin tin should be completely covered, along wth the sides about halfway up. After molding all the "egg whites," place into the oven and bake at 350 F for about half hour.
They will begin to brown and firm up. Take the whites out of the oven and let cool. After cooling, fill the "egg whites" with a few spoonfuls of the mixture, dust with paprika and let chill for a few more hours.

let me know how they turn out, bumblebee.

I've wanted to veganize deviled eggs for a long time now....
I think I would have tried to use a scoop to form the whites from silken fresh tofu.

I know it's strange, but this is high on my to-do list.

i think i'd prefer that as well. i used to love deviled eggs when i was like 8. i ate about a dozen at every family gathering.

Just the concept. I think I have some mental blocks around veganising certain foods. Like:

vegan bacon = A OK
vegan burger = super duper
vegan human = might be interesting
vegan turducken = DEAR GOD NOOOOOOOOO
vegan scrambled tofu "eggs" = yum!
vegan devilled eggs = DEAR GOD NOOOOOOOOOO

i might be neurotic

i might be neurotic

But is it such a bad thing? I've had to learn to embrace my neuroses. :P



I was considering making a vegan deviled egg out of some sort of tofu-yolk and a light phylo dough with a thumb print in it as a 'egg white'.... basically just something to carry it to my mouth. :P I started pondering that a year ago but never got around to it.
