What is it about cooking and baking that excites me so? It's necessary for survival and can be as repetitive as doing laundry. So many people I know hate taking the time and effort to cook or bake. Thank you Lord that you have graced with me this "necessary task" as being a pleasureful, meaningful and education life-long experience.
I found this recipe on 101cookbooks.com
It's pretty flipping delicious and healthy and full of flavors and crunch!
Curried Egg Salad Recipe
adapted from 101Cookbooks.com
5 good quality eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons curry powder (your favorite)
3 tablespoons plain yogurt
2 big pinches of salt
1/2 small onion, chopped
1/2 medium apple, chopped
1/4 cup pecans, toasted and chopped
1 small bunch of chives, minced
First off, you need to boil the eggs properly (the key to good egg salad!). Place the eggs in a pot and cover with cold water by a 1/2-inch or so. Bring to a gentle boil. Now turn off the heat, cover, and let sit for exactly seven minutes. Have a big bowl of ice water ready and when the eggs are done cooking and place them in the ice bath for three minutes or so - long enough to stop the cooking.
While the eggs are boiling/cooling, combine the yogurt, curry powder and salt in a tiny bowl. Set aside.
Crack and peel each egg, and place in a medium mixing bowl. Add the curried yogurt, onions, apple, pecans, and chives. Now mash with a fork. Don't overdo it, you want the egg mixture to have some texture. If you need to add a bit more plain yogurt to moisten up the mixture a bit, go for it a bit at a time. taste and add more salt if needed. Enjoy as-is, or served wrapped in lettuce or between two slices of good, toasted bread.
Notes: I did not use the onion, and I didn't mince the chives, I just chopped them with a scissors.
