Low Fat Mock Deviled Eggs
Wishing you a very Merry Christmas
These are called low fat mock deviled eggs because instead of using the cholesterol laden egg yolks, you use garbanzo beans for the filling.
6 hard boiled eggs
1 teaspoon sugar
1 tablespoon white vinegar
1 16-oz. can garbanzo beans (chickpeas), rinsed and drained
2 tablespoons nonfat mayonnaise
2 tablespoons nonfat sour cream
2 tablespoons yellow mustard
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
2 tablespoons minced green onion
1/4 teaspoon ground paprika
Remove shells from eggs. Halve eggs lengthwise; remove and discard the yolks. In a small bowl, dissolve sugar in vinegar.
Rinse the chickpeas and drain thoroughly. In a food processor or blender, combine chickpeas, sugar mixture, mayonnaise, sour cream, mustard, pepper, and onions and blend until smooth. Spoon mixture into egg whites or fill using a fluted pastry bag. Sprinkle with paprika, if desired, and refrigerate until ready to serve.
