Calling all deviled egg lovers!
If you’ve been searching for a vegan version of deviled eggs, look no further. These deviled eggs are made with baby potatoes and they do not disappoint. The flavor is on point and they’re plant-based, gluten-free, oil-free optional!
How do you make vegan deviled eggs?
The first step is to wash and boil the potatoes. Make sure the potatoes are small and about the size of an egg. Boil the potatoes whole for about 25-30 minutes until cooked all the way through. You should be able to get a toothpick through the potato easily. Strain the potatoes then immediately add them into an ice bath to chill for 5-10 minutes.
Cut the potatoes in half then scoop out a little well in the center using a teaspoon. Add the potato that you scoop out into a bowl. The extra potato will be used to create the filling. To the filling add mustard, vegan mayo (optional), apple cider vinegar, turmeric, and salt.
Use a ziplock bag with the end cut off to pipe the filling into the potato wells. Garnish with fresh or dried dill and smoked paprika. Refrigerate if you’re not eating them immediately.
Will my non-vegan friends and family enjoy this?
Absolutely. They’re simply delicious. You can introduce them as deviled potatoes as of course, they are not eggs. They for sure give the feeling of eating a deviled egg though! The creamy center is reminiscent of an egg yolk. When I make them, they are a total crowd pleaser and are enjoyed by vegans and meat eaters.
Also, if you know someone who is trying to convert to a plant-based diet, make these for them or the share the recipe – it’s a classic, familiar food that people love.
What can I garnish the deviled “eggs” with?!
- smoked paprika
- fresh dill
- dried dill
- sea salt
- fresh chopped parsley
A few important tips:
- Remember to boil these whole! Don’t cut them in half ahead of time.
- Make sure to get potatoes that are about the size of an egg. If they’re way too big, they won’t be deviled eggs anymore.
- Put the potatoes in an ice bath after straining them so they don’t continue to cook and so that they cool down. It’s harder to work with hot potatoes.
Furthermore, if you want something to pair these, try making my grillable vegan burgers!
How do you make the filling taste like a deviled egg?!
The key is to use vegan ingredients that are already used in traditional deviled eggs. For example, adding mustard, apple cider vinegar, vegan mayo and salt truly do make these taste so similar to deviled eggs and give them the same texture. It’s truly remarkable how you can mimic certain textures using plant-based ingredients. No need for eggs here! In addition, eggs also have a lot of cholesterol and since we used potatoes these are cholesterol free. These vegan deviled eggs are amazing.
