Artichoke Deviled Eggs with Capers

DevsEggs_1Today’s guest post is an original recipe from my eldest, Devyn Sisson! Devyn is hard at work writing her first cookbook, Kitchen Intuition. In the meantime, check her out on Instagram for more recipes and kitchen tips.

I’m Devyn, aka, The Intuitive Chef, aka, Ms. Kitchen Intuition. Whatever alias I go by, “Dev” is always a good fallback. I just received my Masters in Spiritual Psychology, started writing a cookbook called Kitchen Intuition, and recently completed an integrative nutrition program.

Although I’ve learned from cookbooks, the trusty Food Network, and amazing chefs along my journey, I’ve always trusted my intuition when it comes to cooking, paying close attention to my body and taste buds to create strange, delicious, new, exciting recipes that I get to test out on my brave friends and family. And I’d like to share one of those intuitive variations with you today.

Like I say in my upcoming book, I don’t like to use “recipes,” per se, since I always encourage folks to take their own spin on any traditional formula. It’s good to have a template, but the final product is only limited by your own creativity and imagination!

For today’s deviled egg recipe, I used PRIMAL KITCHEN™ Mayo and chopped artichoke hearts. Sometimes I top the eggs with chives and paprika, other times with rosemary. But in today’s recipe, I was feeling the need for some capers! Whatever variation you choose will be delicious. Just pick your favorite based on your particular mood, taste, and whim that strikes your fancy.

I hope you have a blast creating today’s recipe or one of its MANY available variations.

Until next time, trust your kitchen intuition and enjoy!

Time in the Kitchen: 25 minutes

Servings: 2

Ingredients:

  • 3 hard boiled eggs
  • 3 tablespoons PRIMAL KITCHEN™ Mayo (or homemade)
  • 1/4 cup chopped marinated artichoke hearts
  • 2 teaspoons of mustard
  • Garlic & onion powder, to taste
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Optional toppings: Capers, paprika, chives, or rosemary

Directions:

  • Hard boil the eggs by placing them into a pot and bringing to a boil. Once the water boils, remove from the heat, cover and let sit for 20 minutes.
  • Run the hard boiled eggs under cold water and then peel. Slice in half and remove the yolks.
  • Mix yolks with remaining ingredients. Salt and pepper filling to taste.
  • Put mixture in a piping bag and then fill the middle of the egg whites with the yolk mixture.
  • Garnish with whatever strikes your fancy (today I used capers) and enjoy!

Imagine you’re George Clooney. Take a moment to admire your grooming and wit. Okay, now imagine someone walks up to you and asks, “What’s your name?” You say, “I’m George Clooney.” Or maybe you say, “I’m the Clooninator!” You don’t say “I’m George of George Clooney Sells Movies Blog” and you certainly don’t say, “I’m Clooney Weight Loss Plan”. So while spam is technically meat, it ain’t anywhere near Primal. Please nickname yourself something your friends would call you.

  1. Devyn this sounds amazing! I always say I cook intuitively also. Recipes kind of get me stressed…I use them for inspiration but don’t like to measure. On the rare occasion that I post a recipe on my blog it feels so weird to actually measure things! Artichokes and capers are some of my faves, and it will be fun trying something new with hard cooked eggs. I’m looking forward to more ideas (won’t call them recipes!) from you! Did you study at IIN? I just finished there in Oct.

  3. Sounds like my kind of cooking book!

  4. Love the egg recipe! I’ve fixed them with shrimp and just about every kind of chopped veggie imaginable…but never thought of using ‘chokes. Thanks for the inspiration, Dev.

  5. Artichokes & capers in my deviled eggs!
    It’s so obvious, I can’t believe I had to see it in print before trying it!

  6. Toss some avocado in there and I’d never leave the ktichen!

  7. Looks good. Never thought to add capers to deviled eggs.

  8. I love artichoke hearts. We always say that everything is better with artichoke hearts. I will try this next time I do eggs. I prefer the water packed because most of the marinated Brands use soy oil. Do you have a marinated brand you like to use? Can’t wait to see more from your cookbook.

    • Ah, maybe that could be Mark’s next Primal Kitchen product! I agree most versions I see have crappy oils.

      Paleo-curious wrote on January 16th, 2016
    • Agreed – I always use water packed also. I can always add the oil of my choice.

  9. I like egg made food & love to cook occasionally. I prefer it for my next recipe.

  10. That looks delicious. I am having some friends over tomorrow morning for bunch. I will make it for them. Artichokes are an underrated vegetable.

  11. So excited for your upcoming book, Dev!

    Your mode of cooking sounds very similar to my own…and I love your intuitive primal approach.

    (Oh, and these eggs look fantastic too!)

  12. Honestly, it looks like there are chocolate chips on those eggs! :)

  13. My filling came out just a bit runny. Careful with the mayo and the mustard as the right amount will depend on the size of the yolks. Perhaps start with less and work your way to best consistency. Very good, though!

  14. This is a good recipe overall, but there is absolutely no need for the eggs to sit in the water for 20 minutes – 7-8 minutes is ideal for hard-boiled eggs with creamy yolks.
