Pure Paleo Recipe: Deviled eggs with sardines

Posted on

Preparation : 8 minutes
Cooking : 10 minutes


4 eggs
1 tablespoon of lemon juice
1 tablespoon of prepared mustard like Dijon
1 tablespoon natural yoghurt
4 sardine fillets
Chopped parsley
Powdered paprika

Hard boil the eggs for 10 minutes in boiling water. Place in cold water to cool them, then peel the shells and slice them in half lengthwise. They are easier to slice if you run the knife under cold water before each slice. Remove the yolks.  Purée the sardines with the lemon juice, yoghurt and mustard. I used a wand blender and Greek Yogurt.

Work the egg yolks  into the mixture and season to taste. I used a whisk to break up the egg yolks.  Either I was heavy-handed with measuring the yoghurt and mustard, or the proportions for the recipe aren’t right.  If the consistency of the filling is too soft, add another cooked egg yolk.

Add the chopped parsley to the stuffing mixture. Stuff the eggs with the mixture and sprinkle with paprika. Refrigerate until serving.  My teenage son saw the plate and said, Oh! Can I have some?  That’s the sound of a success.

Recipe: Ham and Asparagus Roll-ups

Posted on

These are to inspire you. They’re easy to assemble and taste good.

  • very tasty ham slices
  • asparagus stalks – at least one per slice of ham.
  • good French mustard

Boil the asparagus until it’s just barely tender. I usually cook them in a frying pan in a single layer, just covered with water. Stare at them so you don’t over cook them. They are Done when bright green. Test them by piercing the stalks with a fork.

Saute the ham in a skillet to take the chill off the meat and bring up the flavour.

Spread some mustard on each slice. Put one or two asparagus stalks on the slice and roll.
