So my son decided to pose with one of his favorite things to eat – EGGS! I hope the Egg Board (I am assuming there is such a thing) is going to take note.
One of my personal favorite recipes from Modern Spice with a gorgeous photo courtsey of Tina Rupp –
Curried Egg Salad with Caramelized Onion
– serves 4 to 6 –
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2 medium red onion, thinly sliced
1/4 teaspoon table salt
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
6 hard-cooked eggs, peeled
1/4 medium red onion, finely diced
1/2 medium red or orange organic bell pepper, seeded and finely diced (see Note)
3/4 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons minced cilantro
1 small green serrano chile, minced
1 1/2 teaspoons hot Madras curry powder
1 tablespoon prepared mustard powder
2 cups spinach leaves, loosely packed
1. Caramelize the onions: Heat the oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add the sliced onion and fry for about 5 minutes until it becomes transparent. Add 1/4 teaspoon of salt, the sugar, and the pepper and saute for another minute. As soon as it changes color, remove from the heat and set aside until the rest of the salad is ready.
2. In a large bowl, mash the boiled eggs with a fork or finely chop them. Add the diced onion and bell pepper and mix well.
3. In a separate bowl, combine the mayonnaise, cilantro, chile, curry powder, and salt to taste. Mix well. Add the mustard and mix until well combined. Add the eggs and mix.
4. Divide the spinach leaves onto four serving plates. Heap the egg salad evenly onto each plate. Top with the caramelized onions and serve.
