Herbed Egg Salad with Sun Dried Tomatoes (Oil Free)

This might be the best egg salad I’ve ever had! It’s simple and oil free making it easier to digest, especially if wrapped in crispy fresh lettuce leaves instead of dry slices of bread. Also, if you’ve never had duck eggs, like I used for this recipe, you’re in for a real treat- they are rich and creamy and have forever spoiled me from buying chicken eggs again!

Italian Egg Salad (Oil Free)

Ingredients:

4 free-range chicken eggs or 3 duck eggs

1/2 cup re-hydrated sun dried tomatoes

big pinch of dried rosemary, thyme, and basil

1 tsp garlic powder

1 Tbsp dijon mustard

truffle salt and freshly cracked black pepper

Bring a small pot of water to a boil and gently drop in eggs. Cook for 10 minutes. Remove eggs from hot water and allow to cool. Once cool, remove the eggshells and mash with the remaining ingredients.

Spicy Black Bean Spread

My dietary experiments have gone through multiple evolutions, taking twists and turns here and there, juice fasting, cleansing, branching out to try things I’ve never had before, and going through stretches of just not caring. I grew up vegetarian and some things that I really missed when I got into a simpler,  cleaner way of eating were beans and tofu. So after several years of cleansing and leaving them out I started eating them again for a period…and it was alright. I don’t digest them well and they weigh me down after awhile but I can’t say I won’t ever eat them again. I’m currently avoiding them because fussing with digestive upset isn’t of interest to me and greeeeeeens and green juice are way higher on my list of things that make me feel good.

However, my wifey made a special request and cooking for her is one of my favorite things on the planet. I basically threw this together with ingredients we had lying around and it was a huge hit. In cases like this I always have to ask Is it good? Like blog-worthy good?” – and this one got the go ahead. Brit likes spreads  like this for sandwiches, wraps, and pitas and today used a portion as dipping sauce for home baked potato wedges.

Spicy Black Bean Spread

Ingredients:

1 can black beans, drained

1 handful of cilantro

1 clove garlic

juice of 1 lemon

sea salt and cayenne, to taste

Blend to desired consistency.
