Vegan Deviled Potatoes Two Ways (Tuna and Egg Filled)
Questa ricetta è disponibile anche in italiano
These Vegan Deviled Potatoes make the perfect starter on Easter day. Completely plant based, they’re filled with a rich chickpea “tuna” puré and with a creamy egg-like mixture. They will be an incredible success, I promise!
Fairly easy to make, these vegan deviled eggs only require a bunch of very common ingredients:
– potatoes (make sure to pick those close to the size of an egg to achieve the perfect outcome)
– chickpeas (canned ones are perfect)
– vegan mayo (homemade or store bought)
– kala namak – aka black salt (for the eggy taste and flavour).
Now I realize that maybe this is not a very common ingredient in everyone’s homes. It is though really easily available online and in almost all specialized stores (bio, vegan, etc.). I highly recommend that you buy kala namak if you were a fan of eggs before going vegan, as, thanks to its sulphurous flavor, it is perfect for recreating omelets, frittatas and fillings in your savory preparations!
– 1 pot
– 1 knife
– 1 watermelon baller (to scoop out semi spheres of potatoes)
– a blender (if you’re making the “tuna” sauce)
– 1 fork (for the egg yolk-style filling)
How to make vegan deviled “eggs”
First thing we have to do is boil the potatoes.
After washing the potatoes thoroughly, place in a pot, add enough water to cover them, a pinch of salt and bring to a boil. Boil for roughly 15 minutes, or until you can pierce the entire potato with a wooden skewer.
Alternatively, you can cook the potatoes in the Instant Pot following this guide.
Drain the potatoes and allow to cool completely (it will require at least an hour. To speed up the process arrange the potatoes onto a plate making sure they do not touch each other and place next to an open window).
Cut each potato in half lenght-wise, then scoop out a semi sphere of pulp with a melon baller.
Do not throw away the pulp as it will be used as our “egg yolk” filling.
To do so simply mash the potato “cores” with a fork or a potato masher. Season with black salt for taste and turmeric for colour, then add a couple of tablespoons of vegan mayo, until smooth and creamy.
For the “tuna” filling we need to blend all together: chickpeas, capers and vegan mayo until again it turns into a smooth and creamy texture.
You can now fill up the potato holes with a spoon for a rustic look or with a piping bag and your favourite nozzle, for a nicer and cleaner finish.
Enjoy these delicious vegan deviled potatoes cold as an appetiser or as a part of an Easter buffet!
You can store the vegan deviled “eggs” in the fridge up to 3 days.
