Okay, did I miss something, was this an article about religious holidays or a mindless little recipe about something else to do with eggs at Easter? I like hummus, I also like deviled eggs. People please get a grip and don't read a lot into an article that was meant to be light hearted and not the end of religious definitions. For those of you who see Easter as a Christian rite good for you, faith is truly a wonderful thing. I applaud you on your faith. For those who don't like hummus, don't try this. For those who do the whole sugar carb thing, whatever works for you. but lighten up!

This is the most ridiculous thread I have ever read. IT'S A RECIPE, PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!!!! No one was trying to make any religious opinions WHATSOEVER. Crazy.

Whoaaaaa I really doubt Fit was trying to say that Easter is really "about" anything in particular, just making suggestions for egg dishes since it's traditional for lots of people (not everyone! it's ok!) to eat eggs/do egg hunts/etc. Plus, no one is saying that this is the end all be all "better" way to make Deviled Eggs, just like subbing tofu or turkey for beef in a dish. Just a suggestion for something new and different! Let's calm down, it's just food, eggs, and nobody needs to get crazy here.

I always just figured the eggs were added to the whole Easter celebration as a symbol of new life, ie, the resurrection of Jesus. While it's true that deviled eggs made with tons of mayo and egg yolks aren't exactly healthy, eggs are a very nutritious food. I just eat my hardboiled eggs plain...yolk and all.

Great idea to fill hard boiled eggs with hummus, but I think I'd skip the almonds since the hummus has enough fat with the olive oil in it.

Ok, you state: "you can devil one or two". Impossible, If I want one deviled egg, I always end up with two! I'm tired of BBQ places offering as a side a deviled egg and serving only one side of the egg! Where does the FDA weigh in on this burning issue? What is our Gov't going to do about this divisive issue? We need legislation!
BobbiGirl718 BobbiGirl718 9 years dz hard bolied eggs makes two dz deviled eggs.But you knew you just wanted to off the religion thing..I agree. Oh, you don't have to devil a dz,you can devil one or two.

Or,if you have a healthy pet you can mix a yolk in with their food for extra protein.I eat two eggs a week,usually hard boiled so the yolk is easy to remove. I eat one yolk and mash the other in my cats soft food,he loves it and he's in very good health. You can also take all those yolks(as in the recipe) and feed them to the birds.Break them up and dry them out a little in paper towel,in the frig so them don't spoil.Then just put them out for the birds.You'll be surprised how fast they gobble them up.BUT..put it out for them in the AM because if they have eaten already the yolks will just lie there,spoil,smell bad and go to waste.

A Philosophical question: Does this recipe use one dozen eggs and make one dozen deviled eggs or two dozen deviled eggs? Is a deviled egg two halves or one? Perhaps the controversy on this will be less passionate than the religio-nutriti debate?

That is a great idea. It would be tastier than low fat mayo for sure.

I thought we were talking about a deviled egg recipe here.Chick peas (hummus)and olive oil is not animal fat (sat fat).

Since this has turned into a religion issue and a health issue, not just a new recipe, i'm going to put my 2 cents in. jlroch is correct about christianity adopting pagan rituals to make converting people easier. but, the last i heard, this is still a free country and people can believe whatever they want. i prefer actually doing research about subjects before i get into them, but to each their own. as for the recipe itself, i think it might actually taste pretty decent, but i do like hummus. for those who don't, go for the lowfat mayo approach. yes, it is a waste of yolks, but if you want to try the hummus eggs and not waste yolks, maybe you might want to use the yolks for hollandaise sauce (kind of kills the whole healthy thing though). as for hummus. it's not really unhealthy. yes, it's made of garbanzo beans, spices, and olive oil. plenty of olive oil, but olive oil is actually quite healthy and good for you.

Hi Berlin..if you'd like to use reduced fat mayo that's ok.too.But check out the labels on that stuff.A lot of us perfer not to put any of that unknown stuff in/on our food.If I really want mayo,I'll use the real thing,about 1/2 a teaspoon.Enjoy,Girl.

What the creator of this article fails to mention is that a lot of hummus is made with oil. Many use olive oil but it is a very fattening paste. I love the stuff but knew people that had a Greek restaurant and I saw it being made. Also to all the Christians that know very little about their own faith. Easter and Christmas was originally a Pagan holiday as some have already posted. I am Christian but it annoys me when people without much knowledge start posting things as if they know something. Might as well make it commercial since it has it's roots in paganism. Viva Deviled Eggs!!!

You can also use less hummus and add 1/2 a mashed avacado.
