Today’s hummus deviled eggs is perfect for a party or holiday appetizer but also makes a delicious every day snack.
Eggs are a staple in the keto diet and I’m so happy about that! You can do so many things with them. I can just have on egg, at times when I get super hungry, so it fills me until I can make a meal. They prevent me from over eating, this is why I love them so much! I like hard boiled eggs and also use them in my meal prep. They can be used in salads, sandwiches, grain bowls or pastas.
But deviled eggs are my favorite! And honestly, as fancy as they look, they could be ready in 10 minutes. They are a nice change from the plain boring hard boiled eggs.
I usually make my deviled eggs the standard way, by just mixing the egg yolks with mustard and mayo, seasoning with salt and pepper and they taste amazing!
You can always jazz things up by adding things like bacon, sriracha, red peppers, chopped pickles or cheese. Since I’m a huge fan of Mediterranean food, I decided to add some hummus to these deviled eggs.
I understand that opinions about having hummus on the keto diet vary, but from what I know, small amounts of hummus are acceptable.
In this Hummus Deviled Eggs Recipe – Low Carb, Keto, you can either use store bought or homemade hummus.
I used homemade, because I love making my Roasted Garlic And Lemon Hummus Recipe. It requires a few ingredients and tastes fantastic! The amount of hummus to fill 6 eggs, (12 halves) is 1/4 cup.
Do yo still use the egg yolks, when making low carb hummus deviled eggs? Yes, I like to use the egg yolks. Of course if you are on a lower calorie diet, you can just fill the egg white shells with hummus. But for keto, I suggest that you keep the egg yolks as well!
These healthy deviled eggs with hummus could be stored in the fridge, in an air-tight container for 3 days.
