80--- Hummus-Stuffed Deviled Eggs

Deviled eggs are an indulgence for many.  But with eggs being a great source of protein, they don't have to be limited to special occasions!  This recipe incorporates some healthy hummus into the filling, making them a lighter treat that you can enjoy daily.  I am keeping some yolks in the mix however, for flavor and to keep the healthy complete proteins (yes- the majority are located in the yolk!).

Hummus-Stuffed Deviled Eggs
Makes one dozen

6 eggs, hard-boiled, halved (reserve two yolks)
1/3 cup hummus (see my quick and easy homemade recipe below)
1/2 tsp yellow mustard (use dijon if you wish)
1/4 tsp finely minced onion
2 egg yolks (from your hard-boiled eggs)
Dash salt
Dash ground black pepper
Dash paprika for garnish 
A few chopped chives for garnish

Easy Hummus
Makes ~ 1 cup

1 can no-sodium-added chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 Tbsp tahini
1/2 Tbsp minced garlic
Juice from one lemon
1/2 tsp salt
Dash ground black pepper

For hummus: Combine all ingredients in a food processor and mix until a smooth puree is formed.  Add a small amount of water if a thinner consistency is desired.

For eggs: Mix together hummus, mustard, onion, egg yolk, salt, and pepper in a small food processor until smooth.  Fill each egg half with the mixture, then garnish with paprika and chives.
