The egg salad

I think I twitter about food too much {grin}
I recently mentioned making healthy egg salad
...and the crowd went wild
well, if you consider 5 of you a crowd {grin}

doesn't it look delicious?!

you'll need:
18 eggs
canned coconut milk
hemp seeds
sunflower seeds
celery
cucumber
leeks
real salt
pepper
cilantro
kale
tomato
sprouted bread

place the eggs in a large pot
fill with cold water
cover and bring to a boil
lower heat and simmer for 10 minutes
remove eggs and place in ice bath until cold
place peeled and diced eggs into a bowl
add in cucumber & celery
2 heaping tablespoons of cold coconut milk
{the canned coconut milk firms to a consistency similar to sour cream when cold}
add in hemp seeds and sunflower seeds
and if you're lucky leeks still growing in your garden
season with real salt & black pepper
mix gently

and then your kitchen might look like this...

top your bread with a few pieces of kale
sliced tomato
a few stalks of cilantro
a heaping spoon full of egg salad
and if you're like me, more pepper {grin}

Enjoy!

  1. Keep them coming!!! I eat this stuff up as it is all so good:) Also waiting for a "green juice" post when you have a chance!

  2. Love it! Gonna have to try this one. :) Oh, yes. The green juice recipe would be great as well as your bug repellant. I use Aubrey's right now (mostly Neem based), but would love something with pure citronella. Any suggestions? Have a blessed Sunday.

    no regular black pepper is fine... it was "real salt" which is very different from regular salt.

    So glad you enjoyed it! We eat a lot of cucumber, cilantro, tomato and avocado... I seem to put it in everything!

    Hee-Hee! We buy 4 dozen at a time. :) You could easily scale it down. I often forget that most families don't need to make as much food as us. {grin}

    This made about 12 sandwiches... I should have scaled it down a bit. {grin}

    oh yes, we use coconut in place of lots of dairy things. So awesome!

    green juice coming..... as for repellent. I'm still working on that one. We had one this year that we were not thrilled with. :)
