Top to Bottom Radish Deviled Eggs

Let’s talk radishes.

I love radishes. I think they’re undervalued, delicious, versatile and so pretty. They’re probably one of my favorite vegetables. I can eat them for breakfast, lunch and dinner. They’ve got a delicious bite to them and can be served raw or cooked, which is great, because I love a vegetable that can match my effort level for the day.

I’ve been wanting to incorporate radishes into a recipe for a while, but wasn’t sure how. Then, I found this fantastic recipe for Radish Top Pesto. Oh my god. It’s so so so good. I’ve made it several times now, as well as recommended to friends. I especially love it because it’s a great way to use the radish tops and reduce waste.

I mixed the radish top pesto in with the egg yolk (and a little bit of mayo to keep it creamy) and then topped with sliced radishes. This recipe really lets you utilize the entire radish, from top to bottom. It’s also a great recipe for the incoming spring!

Ingredients:

  • A dozen hardboiled eggs
  • 1 serving of radish top pesto (recipe here)
  • 2 tbsp light mayo
  • 1 bunch radishes, thinly sliced

Directions:

  • Peel your hardboiled eggs and cut into halves
  • Combine yolks, mayo and radish top pesto in a bowl. Mix together until smooth
  • Fill each egg half with pesto yolk mix
  • Top with sliced radishes
  • Serve and enjoy!
