Lowfat Mock Deviled Eggs
Healthy Christmas Recipe
By Fitness and Freebies
These are called 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 can (16-oz) 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.
