Spring is here and I am celebrating with my first in-store demo this weekend! Williams Sonoma in Manhattan Beach has invited me to share a favorite Easter recipe and I couldn’t be more excited! As I was brainstorming ideas for Easter eats, my head went straight to eggs. My mom makes deviled eggs every year to celebrate, which inspired these vegan deviled potatoes! Get the recipe below and if you are local, please come by the Williams Sonoma Manhattan Village in Manhattan Beach Saturday, March 25th, between 1-3 p.m., and watch me make these live, plus taste a sample!
To make these vegan deviled potatoes, you first need to prepare the potatoes. These will be your shell in place of the egg. Look for the small baby gold potatoes, but you could also use the purple and red potatoes of the same size for a colorful dyed Easter egg inspired look! To prepare the potatoes, just slice and bake.
The filling is super easy and delicious. I used a blend of cannelini beans with the cooked potato (scooped out), along with some turmeric to give it a yellowish color. To fill your potatoes, use a pastry bag with star tip for a fancy presentation, or you can be lazy like me and use a cookie dough scoop instead! A note about scooping out your potatoes after they bake…use a small spoon (or melon baller) and be careful not to scoop all the way through to the skin. You just need a small hole for these vegan deviled potatoes.
To serve, garnish with a sprinkle of paprika (that’s how my mom always does it!) and some chopped chives. Aren’t they pretty?!! These vegan deviled potatoes just sing Spring to me when served on chives. I think the kids will have so much fun with these!
