Coconut Curried Eggs: A Delicious and Unique Dish

Do you have a fridge full of leftover Easter Eggs and want something a bit more exciting than egg salad or deviled eggs? Or maybe you are looking for an easy meatless weeknight dinner. Well, I have a simple tasty recipe for you: Coconut Curried Eggs.

Boiled Eggs baked in a curry sauce

This dish whips up in under 30 minutes, is ovo-vegetarian (use coconut oil instead of butter), gluten free, customizable to your diners tastes and is just plain delicious. What is not to love? Just make up some rice or couscous or quinoa to go along with it for a great weeknight meal.

I like mine with toasted coconut, raisins, peanuts and green onions on top. Sir Snubs a Lot likes his plain, including no onions in the sauce. Sometimes he will have the toasted coconut, but it has to be toasted and not soft and moist (probably a texture thing).

If it isn’t post-Easter when you are reading this, go ahead and boil up eggs just for this dish. You can do them ahead of time and keep them in the fridge or add an extra 20 minutes to your cook time that night. You are still out of the kitchen in 45 minutes.

More Easter leftover ideas will be coming out on our social media accounts in the next few days, so be sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter and or Google+.
