These healthy 4-Ingredient Devilled Eggs with Avocado & Horseradish take minutes to throw together. They make a fantastic addition to any celebration party menu, Easter and beyond.
Deviled eggs accompanied most family celebrations and were everyone’s favourite party food throughout my childhood. I have updated this dish to suit more modern tastes and created a simple recipe using avocado and horseradish.
Easy deviled eggs with avocado
These healthy deviled eggs with avocado contain only 4 ingredients and I can’t think of a single party food recipe made from scratch that’s easier to prepare. So, apart from the eggs, I used avocado, horseradish sauce and seasoning. That’s all! Horseradish sauce is rich and creamy (as is avocado) so there is no need to add any mayo.
Once the eggs are boiled and cooled (this bit takes the longest) all that’s left to do is puree the egg yolks with the avocado and the horseradish and spoon the mixture into the eggs (don’t forget to season it first). This is a very uncomplicated process and you’ll have plenty of time left for other, more labour intensive, party dishes.
Boil the eggs ahead
If you want to speed things up even more boil the eggs ahead and, once cooled, refrigerate for up to 2 days. You can do this with any deviled eggs recipe. Peel the eggs just before making the recipe to prevent drying.
Avocado and horseradish
Avocado has a mildly sweetish flavour which works really well with the sharpness of the horseradish. Both are often paired with eggs so this is a tried and tested combination of flavours. These ingredients make a fabulously rich and creamy mixture and it’s a good idea to use a stick blender to ensure the mixture is velvety smooth.
Horseradish sauce is a fantastic ingredient to liven up all sorts of dishes. I’ve paired it with sweet, nutty celeriac in this roasted celery root dip. I’ve also used it in this sweet and sharp apricot chicken casserole.
Unlike most party dishes, this deviled eggs recipe is also quite healthy, as most of the fat, other than the fat in the eggs, comes from the avocado, which as we know contains the ‘good’ kind of fat.
