Vegan Deviled Egg Filling

I am so excited! For the first time I made something without seeking a recipe to follow/tweak. I made a vegan deviled egg filling. Wow! The secret is this salt the hubby bought for me. It's from India and Pakistan and has a sulfuric smell and taste. 

So here's what I did. I was winging it so I'll try to estimate the measurements best I can. 

1/8 cup tahini
1/4 cup lemon juice 
1 squirt of lime juice (you know from one of those cool little bottles)
1 can of cannellini bean, drained and rinsed
8 dashes turmeric (or to taste)
8 dashes cumin
1 tsp. of Himalayan pink salt 
1/4 tsp. India Black Salt 
a few dashes of paprika 
1/2-1 shallot
2 cloves of garlic 
1 tbs. oil, grapeseed and/or olive

In the food processor: 1/8 cup tahini, 1/4 cup lemon juice, squirt of lime juice (you know from one of those cool little bottles), and whip. That's right, whip it good. About a minute of blending and scraping down the sides produces a creamy beginning that will replicate the mayonnaise/mustard blend of standard deviled eggs. I then threw in a drained and rinsed can of cannellini beans. They have that yolk-like texture. I added several dashes of turmeric and cumin, about 8 or so each, enough to lightly coat the beans all around. 1 tsp. of Himalayan pink salt and 1/4 tsp. India Black Salt, a few dashes of paprika, 1/2-1 shallot, two cloves of garlic and blend! Drizzled in about 1 tbs. total of oil, grapeseed and olive.  Scrape down sides and blend until super creamy. Dash of paprika to garnish and spread on sourdough rye crisps. I imagine it would be perfect on a slice of avocado to give it that deviled egg feel. Super creamy yummy!

Out of Context

Today's Encouraging Word from KLOVE was from Philippians. 

K-LOVE Radio
Monday 5/13/2013And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus.
~ Philippians 4:19, NLT | View in context | Share on:  Facebook  Twitter 

It's funny how often we take a verse out of context and stand on it our whole lives without remembering the original intent. So as you may be able to see, I clicked on "View in context." Not only do we get the context of Paul thanking the Philippians for their gift of support during his ministry travels but we get the ever popular "I can do all things (or everything) through Christ (or the one) who gives me strength."
I'm not saying that this won't continue to be one of my favorite reminders from one of Jesus' faithful followers but I just felt compelled to share so that we all remember to take things in context sometimes.
I invite you to read Philippians 4:10-20 and think about it. That's all.

Don't be sad if you don't get one in the mail. I only ordered a few because it's Connor's first Christmas. I really just love seeing his face all the time, in pictures and in person. We are so happy that he has entered our lives and can't really remember life without him.

Those Lips


This just discovered! Connor's 18 day old face! I was just about to give him a little washing... I can barely remember when I could hold him like that and he wasn't trying to jump out of my arms.
