Turmeric-Avocado Deviled Eggs

This is the second batch of deviled eggs that I made for the Ostara Potluck I attended.

The first batch was the Pink Deviled Eggs I wrote about a few days ago.

Unlike the pink eggs, which used leftover beet brine, I made a fermented turmeric brine especially for these eggs.  They will need to be started at least 2 weeks in advance of when you want to serve them in order for you to have time to ferment the turmeric brine.

But the results are worth it!

Turmeric adds the yellow colour to the outside of the eggs, and is also a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflamatory.

The avocado not only provides the green creamyness to the yolk filling, it also provides some heart-healthy monounsaturated fats, a ton of nutrients and yet more anti-inflammatory properties.

These are a stunning contribution to a potluck, but also make great snacks and would look wonderful on an Easter buffet table.  They would also be good for breakfast or in packed lunches.

You could also just eat the turmeric pickled eggs whole without going to the trouble of cutting and filling them with the avocado mixture.

Whole eggs/egg whites are an AIP stage 2 reintroduction, so if you are following the AIP plan, you will need to wait until you have successfully reintroduced egg yolks and egg whites before eating these.  When reintroducing foods on the AIP, I recommend this guide.

Turmeric Avocado Deviled Eggs

Makes 24 halved eggs


To make the turmeric brine:

  • 2 TBSP pink Himalayan salt
  • 1 small carrot – sliced – peel if not organic
  • 2″fresh root ginger – sliced thinly
  • 2″ fresh turmeric root – sliced thinly
  • 4-5 slices fresh horseradish root
  • 3 cloves garlic – peeled
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 2 sprigs fresh rosemary
  • 2 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 1 cabbage leaf (to weigh down the veggies to ensure they all stay underneath the brine)

To make the eggs

  • 1 dozen eggs – preferably free-range/pastured/soy-free

To make the filling

  • 1 large ripe avocado – peeled and diced
  • sea salt to taste
  • 1 tbsp fresh parsley – chopped
  • 1 tbsp fresh basil – chopped
  • 1 tbsp fresh chives – chopped
  • 1 tbsp fresh thyme – chopped
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

The first thing that needs to be done is that the brine needs to be made and fermented.  This needs to be started at least 2 weeks before you want to serve the eggs.

Take all the brine ingredients, except for the cabbage, and put them in a quart mason jar.  Add filtered water to cover and mix well to dissolve the salt.  Tuck the cabbage leaf on top of the veggies to hold them down under the brine.  If necessary weigh this down with a small jar or shot-glass filled with brine.


Cover and leave to stand at room temperature for at least 7 days.  It may get fizzy and bubbly as the naturally occurring cultures start to ferment the sugars in the veggies and herbs.  This is normal.  Open the lid every now and again to release the gas.

Once the brine is fermented to your liking, strain out all the solids, reserving the fermented brine.

Take the dozen eggs, and place them in a pan with cold water.  Bring to the boil, reduce the heat and simmer for 10 minutes.

Drain and place in cold water.

Once the eggs have cooled enough to handle, peel off the shells and pack the eggs in a large mason jar.

Carefully pour over the brine to cover the eggs.

Place the eggs in the fridge and leave to “pickle” for 5-7 days.

To make the deviled eggs…

Drain the eggs from the brine.

Cut each egg in half lengthwise and carefully scoop out the yolk.

Mash the yolks with the avocado.

Place the herbs, garlic, lemon juice and the olive oil in a blender or food processor and puree to a paste.

Add the herb puree to the egg yolks and avocado and mix well.

Season to taste with sea salt.


Carefully spoon or pipe the green mixture back into the egg whites and arrange on a serving platter.

Pink Deviled Eggs

This is an unusual way to prepare eggs, but it is both delicious and very striking to look at.

I made these for a Ostara celebration that I attended.


They would also be perfect for Easter, and would make a stunning addition to a brunch table.  I also made some yellow deviled eggs as well, but they are a separate recipe.

They also make great appetizers or snacks.  Kids love them due to the unusual colour…

The striking pink-purple colour is 100% natural, and comes from soaking the cooked and peeled eggs in leftover beet-brine or beet kvass.


The eggs need to soak in the brine for several days  – the longer you soak them, the more the whites take on the colour – I left these in the brine for 7 days, and as you can see, the purple-pink colour penetrated all the way to the yolks.  In fact, the yolks were stained slightly pink at the edges.  I suspect that leaving them in the brine for even longer would result in pink yolks as well.

If you also need to make the beet brine or kvass, you will need to start these at least 2 weeks in advance.  The recipe for the beet brine/kvass can be found here.

While these are not 100% AIP (egg yolks are a stage 1 reintroduction, and egg whites are a stage 2 reintroduction), if you have successfully managed to reintroduce eggs, you could enjoy these beauties.  When reintroducing foods on the AIP, I recommend this guide.

Pink Deviled Eggs

makes 2 dozen halved eggs


  • 1 dozen eggs
  • beet brine or beet kvass to cover
  • ¼ cup homemade mayonnaise
  • ¼ cup coconut milk yoghurt
  • 2 tbsp fresh dill – chopped
  • salt and black pepper to taste (black pepper is a stage 2 reintroduction – omit this if sensitive to it)
  • dill sprigs to garnish

Place the eggs in a pan and cover with cold water.  Bring to the boil, then simmer for 10 minutes.

Drain the eggs and cover in cold water.  Leave to stand until completely cold.

Remove the shells from the eggs, and place them in a large mason jar.  Cover the eggs with the beet brine/beet kvass, and put on a lid.


Store the eggs in the fridge for between 3 and 7 days.  The longer you leave the eggs, the more colour the whites will take.

To make the deviled eggs, drain off the beet brine/kvass.

Slice each egg in half, lengthwise and scoop the yolks into a bowl.

Mash the yolks with the mayonnaise and coconut milk yoghurt until smooth.  Season with salt and black pepper, and stir in the dill.

Spoon or pipe the yolk mixture back into the whites and garnish with a small sprig of dill.


Keep in the fridge until you are ready to serve, and be prepared to explain to everyone how you achieved that wonderful colour!

Saffron Roast Lamb

Lamb is one of my favourite meats – I blame that on growing up on a sheep farm, where we ate a LOT of lamb!

I had a beautiful leg of lamb in the freezer and decided that I wanted to cook it for Sunday Dinner.

This recipe is based on one from Feast by Nigella Lawson.

It is Paleo, Gluten/Grain-free and AIP-friendly.  And it tastes just delicious!

This would be perfect to serve at Easter!

Saffron Roast Lamb

serves 6


  • 1 leg of lamb (mine weighed 1.7kg/3¾lb)
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic – crushed
  • 6 green onions – chopped
  • 2 bay leaves
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • small bunch of mint – torn
  • 2-3 sprigs of rosemary, needles removed and chopped
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 carrots – peeled and cut into sticks
  • 2 sticks of celery – cut into sticks
  • 1 onion – peeled and sliced
  • ½ tsp saffron threads soaked in 1 cup boiling water

Put the lamb in a large dish and pour over the olive oil.  Add the garlic, green onions and herbs, and sprinkle with salt.  Squeeze over the lemon juice.

Rub all this well into the lamb, then place the dish in the refrigerator overnight so that the meat can absorb all the flavours..

Next day, remove the lamb from the refrigerator and allow it to come up to room temperature while the oven preheats.

Preheat the oven to 220°C/425°F.

Place the onion, carrot and celery in the base of a roasting tin and transfer the contents of the dish to the tin, sitting the lamb on top of the veggies.


Put the lamb in its roasting tin in the oven and roast for 35 minutes per kilo (16 minutes per lb).  You want the lamb to be cooked so that it is just a little pink inside.  If you have a meat thermometer, aim for a temperature of 70°C/160°F in it’s thickest part.


Remove the lamb and the veggies to a carving board and allow the lamb to rest for 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, add the saffron and its water to the roasting tin and allow it to simmer over a medium high heat to reduce it by half.

Strain out all the herbs and onions, and serve the lamb carved into thick slices with the saffron gravy.


I also served roasted white sweet potatoes, sauteed ruby chard and asparagus with this.
