How to make this low carb deviled eggs recipe
This easy recipe makes the best deviled eggs for anyone on a keto diet.
1. Combine egg yolks, wasabi mayonnaise, vinegar, and miso paste in a mini-food processor or blender. Pulse until well blended and creamy.
If you can’t find wasabi mayonnaise, use 1/3 cup light mayonnaise and 1 to 1 1/2 teaspoons wasabi paste.)
2. Place egg mixture into a piping bag. Pipe egg mixture into egg whites.
3. Garnish with optional sesame seeds and/or seaweed strips.
4. Serve immediately.
5. Place any leftovers in an airtight container and refrigerate for up to 3 days.
How to cook perfect hard-boiled eggs
If you have an Instant Pot, use my Instant Pot Pressure Cooker Hard Boiled Eggs method. It’s an excellent way to make big batches of eggs that come out perfectly each time!
Or use this foolproof way to make hard-boiled eggs on the stovetop:
Since most classic deviled egg recipes call for six eggs, I cook up a few more.
Inevitably, a couple will get cracked, will be hard to peel, or the white halves will get torn. Use any extra eggs for egg salad.
1. Put 8 or 9 eggs in a medium-sized pot and cover with cold water.
2. Place pot on the stove over high heat and bring to a rolling boil.
3. Turn off the heat. Keep the pan on the stovetop and cover.
If your stovetop doesn’t retain heat when turned off, lower the temperature to low, simmer for a minute, and turn it off.
4. Boil eggs in hot water for 12 minutes.
5. Bring pot over to sink, uncover and rinse eggs under cold water until they are cool enough to handle. (Some people like using an ice bath.)
6. Peel eggs when they’re still warm to the touch. They’ll peel easier than when they’re cold.
7. Rinse any shell pieces or membranes off of eggs, cut in half with a sharp knife, remove yolks, and prepare eggs as directed.
If you’re not using the eggs right away, refrigerate them for later.
Where to find wasabi deviled egg ingredients
Do you have an Asian market near you? It’s a great place to purchase foods like wasabi paste, black sesame seeds, dried seaweed snacks, rice vinegar, and miso paste at a great price.
Luckily, many grocery stores now carry Asian ingredients, so check there first.
Use miso to make soup, salad dressings, and add it to sauces or stir-fries for a unique umami flavor. It lasts forever in your refrigerator.
Or you can substitute 1/2 teaspoon of gluten-free soy sauce (also known as tamari sauce) instead of using miso.
I used Trader Joe’s Wasabi Roasted Seaweed Snack for the optional garnish for this recipe. You can also use regular strips of dried seaweed snack.
Many grocery stores now carry dried seaweed (sushi nori). You can use that instead.
You may be able to find black sesame seeds in the Asian section of your grocery store as a garnish for this wasabi deviled eggs recipe.
If you don’t find them there, look for sesame seeds (both white and black) with the spices in the baking section of your grocery store.
You can find wasabi paste in the Asian section of most grocery stores. Or use up all those packets of wasabi you have leftover from takeout sushi in the refrigerator. I know that’s what you’ve been saving them for!
Make sure to use clear, unsweetened rice vinegar and avoid the kind made for making sushi. You don’t want any of that added sugar in your low-carb deviled eggs.
Is mayonnaise OK for keto diets?
If you’re doing the keto diet, mayo is a great way to add fat to your menu.
Just check the label to look for any sugar added to the ingredients.
For this recipe, use a keto-friendly or low carb mayo like:
- Primal Kitchen, Mayo with Avocado Oil
- Chosen Foods Classic Avocado Oil Mayo
- Sir Kensington’s Mayonnaise Avocado Oil Mayo
Buy these online or at your local grocery store.
Can I use sour cream instead of mayo?
You can use sour cream instead of mayo and keep this a low-carb deviled eggs recipe.
If you’re dairy-free, try a vegan tofu sour cream.
However, using a vegan sour cream will mean your low-carb deviled eggs are no longer keto. (Tofu isn’t keto-friendly.)
So, use regular (full fat) sour cream or a low-carb mayo for the best results.
How to pipe the egg mixture
Using a pastry bag is the easiest way to get the deviled egg mixture into the egg white half. Much easier and less messy than spooning it!
If you don’t have a pastry bag, place the egg mixture into a ziplock bag. Zip the resealable plastic bag shut.
Then snip off a small section of one of the corners of the baggie to use as a piping bag instead.
