Curried Egg Salad

I think of Scandinavia when I hear "egg salad", but then... Then I came across a recipe with an Asian twist, and I was intrigued! As well as being creamy like the less exotic egg salad, this one also has a bit of a kick to it. Perfect as part of a salad, or served on some nice seeded bread!

I replaced fish sauce for sesame oil, making this dish vegetarian *smiles*

Curried Egg Salad
(Serves 1)

2 eggs, hardboiled (about 10-12 minutes, depending on the size)
1 tsp oil
2 spring onions, finely chopped
1/2 tsp Thai curry paste (yellow or green)
2 tbsp natural yogurt (or light mayonnaise)
A good pinch salt
A little fresh coriander, finely chopped
1/2 red chilli, deseeded, finely chopped
1 tsp rice wine vinegar
A splash of sesame oil
Salad or seeded bread to serve

- First of all, boil the eggs for about 10-12 minutes until they are hardboiled. Take them out and cool them in some cold water.

- Heat the oil in a pan and soften the Spring onions, take off the heat and leave to cool for a little bit. Then, stir in the curry paste, yogurt, salt, half of the coriander, the chilli as well as the rice wine vinegar and sesame oil.

- Peel the eggs and half them, serve with bread or salad, and top with the creamed curry salad, and tuck in!

Also... I was so lucky to receive the amazing Ragnhild's book "Naturlig Godt!" which means Naturally Good! in Norwegian *smiles*. It is chock-a-block with vegan, delicious recipes - and I cannot wait to try them out!

I mean... How could I possibly resist?!

It's been a long week, and so now feet are up, and I am ready for a couple of days off - yarr! You got much planned? Have a guid'yin either which way, right? x

  1. <3 Takk for fine ord! Jeg håper dub lager noe godt fra den. Og husk å bare justere og endre etter din smak. Tenker oppskrifter er best når man bruker de som "base" og trikser og mikser til man finner sin egen :) Gleder meg til å se!!

    Spennende salat!

    1. Vær så god Ragnhild! Synes boken er helt topp, og bildene er så fine :D
      Har laget vegansk sushi i dag, det ble kjempegodt altså! Hadde aldri trodd at blomkålris kunne smake så godt rått :D x

  2. Egg salad is one of my favorite things! This looks like such a great twist on a classic. I am also excited for your new cookbook. Post many recipes from there please :) Hope your days off were great :)

    1. Awh thanks honey :D I have already tried out three recipes for the book, and they are really lovely :) Wish it was published in English too (hint hint Ragnhild!) :) I hope you have had a good start to your week Cathleen! x

  3. This salad sounds super tasty! Love the curry and love those hard boiled eggs! Yum!

    1. Merci Katrina! This was definitely an exotic twist of that familiar egg salad :) Super easy to make as well! x

  4. I am a huge egg salad fan - even though I try to eat vegan, mostly, I can't help myself when I get my hands on egg salad! What an interesting twist; curried egg salad sound absolutely fantastic! I wish I could get a copy of this book... or rather, I wish I could READ this book, too bad it's not in English!! It looks really cool :) Hopefully, you'll treat us to a few recipes, Jules :)

    1. Thanks m'dear :D Yeh, I try and cut back on dairy when I can, but eggs and cheese is something I crave, so I just have to listen to my body :) I felt a little silly posting something that wasn't vegan when writing about this book too, but I have already made about a quarter of the recipes in it :D I will post some of them here, but with my own twist :) It's Ragnhild's vegan recipe for chocolate that I have posted previously as well, and all my friends keep telling me to make them :)
