“Eggless” Deviled “Eggs” (raw, vegan, gluten-free)

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites


Let’s get one thing straight before we dive into this recipe… I used cage-free eggs for this recipe… in fact, I used egg-free eggs!  Now before you get any funny ideas, I didn’t lay these eggs but I did create them.  :)   This recipe isn’t 100% raw, but if you don’t consume eggs, but still wish to partake of Deviled Eggs… this is about as close as you are going to come.

I first tested this recipe with 1 1/2 cups of almond milk and 1/2 cup of water.  The water was the only thing that I boiled along with the agar powder.   Then added the mixture to the almond milk and salt in the blender.  This worked fine and kept the almond milk raw but  the blending process caused a lot of little air bubbles in the eggs.   Nothing wrong with that, but it just didn’t look right.

So in my next attempt, I brought the almond milk to a low boil and added the agar and salt to it.  Then poured the mixture straight into the molds.  No small air bubbles.  So, this will be your call how you want to process the almond milk into the recipe.

If you are new to working with agar, it is very easy and fun to play around with but you have to work quickly.  So be sure to have everything ready to go.   I used a chocolate egg mold and another cake pop mold for this recipe.  I wish I had ordered two of the chocolate egg molds but… and that’s ok, because it prompted me to create another recipe so nothing was lost.

You won’t need to grease the mold because they pop right out but I do recommend removing the eggs from the mold before piping in the filling.   The eggs can be slippery and trust me it is a sad day to see one fly across the counter and onto the floor when trying to remove it with the filling in place. :)

I shared these “eggs” with 5 different people, all of whom are not known to be healthy eaters.  You know, those who eat purely for pleasure… and they all loved them.  In fact, I didn’t even reveal the fact that they weren’t real egg whites.  I am sneaky like that.  Enjoy and have fun!


“Egg whites”:
“Egg” mixture:
  • 3/4 cup raw cashews, soaked 2+ hours  or 1 ½ cups chopped avocado
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp yellow mustard or raw mustard
  • 1 1/2Tbsp raw apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp raw agave nectar
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp dried dill
  • 1/4 tsp curry powder
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1/2-1 tsp Kala Namak (Indian Black Salt) very important gives that  egg taste
  • 1/8 tsp ground black pepper


“Egg whites”:
  1. Place the almond milk, agar and salt in a small saucepan.  Turn the heat on medium-high and whisk until it starts to bubble.  Reduce the heat to medium and continue to whisk for 4 minutes.  We need to make sure the agar dissolves.
  2. Working quickly, pour the mixture into a measuring cup with pour spout.  Then fill each egg cavity with agar.   Don’t stop during this process or the mixture will start to gel up.  If this happens, return the mixture to the saucepan and heat back up until melted.
  3. Place the molds in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
  4. Once they are firm, using a 1/4 tsp round measuring spoon, scoop out a small half circle on the fullest part of the “egg”.  Set aside to make the filling.
“Egg” yoke mixture:
  1. If using cashews; soak, drain and rinse the cashews before adding to the blender.  If using avocado; peel and remove the seed before adding to the blender.
  2. Add the water, mustard, apple cider vinegar, agave, paprika, onion powder, dill, curry powder, turmeric, Indian Black salt and pepper.  (whew, I think I got it all).  Blend until smooth and creamy.  If you used cashews make sure that the sauce is smooth and doesn’t have any tiny bits of cashews.
  3. Pour into a medium-sized mixing bowl and set in the fridge to chill.  It will firm up a bit once chilled.
  4. Place the “egg” filling in a piping bag.  Place the tip into the piping tip into the hole you created in the “yoke” and gently squeeze the batter into the base of it, then create a swirl as you reach the top.
  5. Sprinkle smoked paprika on top and enjoy!


One of the greatest joys when creating raw food recipes is experimenting with different ingredients… a practice that I highly encourage.  Daily I get questions regarding substitutions.  Of course we all might have different dietary needs and tastes which could necessitate altering a recipe.    I love to share with you what I create for myself, my husband, friends and family.  I spend a lot of time selecting the right ingredients with a particular goal in mind, looking to build a certain flavor and texture.
So as you experiment with substitutions, remember they are what they sound like, they are substitutes for the preferred item.  Generally they are not going to behave, taste, or have the same texture as the suggested ingredient.   Some may work, and others may not and I can’t promise what the results will be unless I’ve tried them myself.   So have fun, don’t be afraid,  and remember, substituting is how I discovered many of my unique dishes.


Don’t do I as I do, do as I say… and I say to pipe the filling in AFTER you remove
eggs from the molds.  It makes it easier to pop them out and not disturb the filling.




I picked this cake pop mold up at Michael’s Craft store.  It was the closest thing
I had that resembled an egg shape, well half of an egg shape.  :)

    You are AMAZING what a great recipe for people who are watching their cholesterol, now they can have their eggs and eat them too………. :] Lyn

    • amie-sue says:

      Thank you Lyn hehe Everyone ought to enjoy “egg”S whether they eat the real thing or for those who can’t, or choose not too… having alternatives makes being in the kitchen all that much more fun. :) Have a sweet day my friend. amie sue

  4. Juliette says:

    Wow, I have never worked with some of these ingredients, I must give thus a try. A great alternative! Thanks for sharing.

    • amie-sue says:

      Oh I hope you do try it Juliette. Agar is an interesting ingredient and can be quite fun to tinker with. It seems intimidating at first because you have to work quickly with it or it will gel up fast and leave you with little globs. And should that happen, just warm it back up to melt it and start over. Keep me posted if you try it. Have a blessed day, amie sue

  5. Steph says:

    This is amazing! I love it. I will go to the chocolate supply store after Easter and hope for a sale on moulds. Where online do you recommend for getting the black salt? Thank you for your creative and inspiring recipes.

    • amie-sue says:

      Hello Steph,

      Do you have a Michaels or Joannes Craft store near you? They usually have these molds and are always on sale (so it seems) just a thought so you can enjoy them sooner than later. :) Here is a link for the black salt… I will also add the link to the recipe. Thank you for asking so I can make it easier for others wondering as well. Have a glorious day! amie sue

      • Steph says:

        Thank you Amie-Sue! I will check Michaels. It is waaaay cheaper than the chocolate place although I seem to always leave with knitting supplies and stickers and sparkly pens….

        My son who has never had eggs finished the whole white part of this recipe before getting his plate to the table.


        • amie-sue says:

          You bet Steph… I know those chocolate molds can get really spendy… really spendy! I hope you can find some at your local craft store. Thank you for sharing about your son. That brought a huge smile to my face. Have a blessed evening. amie sue

  6. Adriana Kassay says:

    Hi Amie Sue!! I am amazed at the gift of creativity and imagination God has blessed you with!! This recipe fascinates me! My question is with regards to the almond milk. You recently shared a recipe for nut milks that included lecithin. Did the almond milk used to make these eggs have lecithin in it?
    Thank you for your unselfish generous spirit in sharing these unique and amazing treats with all of us!! Many blessings and love to you!!

    • amie-sue says:

      Good morning Adriana, Ahh, good question. The answer is no… I used just plain ole plain almond milk. Thank you for asking to clarify that. Have a blessed day and enjoy the recipe. It ought to bring a smile to your face as you pop them out of the molds. hehe amie sue

      • adriana says:

        Oh and I forgot to ask, in your version pictured is that cashews or avocados, or a mixture of both? And how many little eggs did the amount of this recipe make? Sorry for all the questions, I have been toying with ideas for “fake” deviled eggs for so long! They have been a Holiday staple in my family as long as I can remember! I am so tickled with this!

        • amie-sue says:

          Hello Adriana,

          I used cashews in this photo. Because I had to use two different molds I don’t have an accurate count of the beautiful 1/2 egg mold ones. I am guessing it would about 3 of those chocolate egg molds. The problem is, is that you can fill the mold, let it set, remove them and fill again. The “egg whites” would gel up… so a person really needs enough molds to fill them all at once. Does that make sense? I need to order more molds and see exactly how many it will make. Sorry for the gray answer. :) amie sue

    I know my comment may sound foolish and I have been hesitating to post it but here goes…These precious little eggs made me cry…I cry because I miss the flavors of so many things I used to enjoy when I ate S.A.D Diet I must admit I only eat a Raw Diet for Health and Ethical reasons. I miss many of the treats I was raised with but since finding your site I no longer feel deprived or like I am missing a thing. Thank you dear sweet beautiful Aime-sue, thank you.

  12. aliyah says:

    HI Amie Sue,
    Can I use ground mustard and if I can what measurements. I am on my way to store for agar agar and the egg molds cant wait to try this.

    • amie-sue says:

      Hello Aliyah,

      You can use about 1 tsp of ground mustard… after mixing, be sure to taste test to see if you need to adjust any other ingredients since there is a slight different in taste. Enjoy and let me know how it goes. Have a great evening, amie sue

  13. Steve Cooper says:

    Never seen such a thing before. Thanks for your experiments. This looks like something we want to try. Happy Resurrection Day!

  14. Laura says:

    Hi Amie-Sue, before becoming vegan I always made deviled eggs for family dinners so I was very excited to see your recipe. My husband was too! He actually made them (I love that he is adventurous that way!) and they turned out great. We had them on Easter and everyone that tried them was impressed. Thanks from the bottom of our hearts!

    • amie-sue says:

      That just warmed my heart Laura. Thank you for sharing this with me, it means a lot. :) So happy that I was “part” of your Easter dinner. hehe Many blessings, amie sue

  15. sunny says:

    We don’t eat anything from the polluted oceans and agar unfortunately comes from the ocean. Is there anything we can substitute (sunflower lecithin, white Chia seeds, coconut meat – flax would be the wrong color.
    Coconut might make the taste funny though.
    Thanks for all of your creative ideas.

    • amie-sue says:

      Hello Sunny… I haven’t tried other alternatives. Agar gives the recipe great structure and doesn’t have taste. Chia seeds wouldn’t be thick enough not to mention that color would be way off. Lecithin doesn’t react like agar at all and coconut meat wouldn’t have the structure and the flavor would take away from the “egg” flavor. But feel free to experiment. :) We live in a polluted world and have to pick our battles.

      Good luck! Have a great day. :) amie sue

  16. Beth says:

    I made these a few days ago and I am floored at how much they look, smell, and taste like real eggs! My egg-hating non-vegan husband was so convinced they were real just by sight and smell he wouldn’t touch them! LOL! Delicious!! I can’t wait to make them for parties and fool people! :)

    • amie-sue says:

      I have made these and have fooled many people. hehe It’s a great alternative for those who don’t eat egg. :) Thank you for commenting and sharing your experience with me/us. Many blessings, amie sue

  17. Lynndel says:

    How different of a taste is it when using avocado vs cashews? And using avocado does it make the filling green?
    Thank you

    • amie-sue says:

      Good morning Lynndel, yes the avocado will affect the flavor and color, it is just an option for people to try if they can’t have nuts. I make it with cashews myself. Have a great day, amie sue

  18. Jackie says:

    just found your site! Fantastic! These deviled eggs, I am going to try. About to experiment with “eggless egg ” salads as I really miss that. I think I will take some of your techniques and try. Also, a friend made an “egg” salad out of soaked garbonzo beans, much like when you make a raw hummus, only he put it in vitamix, so it would be smoother. Then, instead of hummus ingredients, he put tumeric, then egg salad type ingredients. Must admit, very very similar to what the real thing is like. I cannot eait to combine his ideas, yours, and mine. We will see what I end up with. This is one of the best raw food sites I have found so far. I am overweight, significantly, but a real foodie. Looking to get off this excess, and enjoy the process.

    • amie-sue says:

      Good afternoon Jackie,

      It is a great pleasure to hear from you. Thank you for sharing, I just love to hear from those who visit my site. Your friends version of “Deviled Eggs” sounds good too! That is the joy of (un)cooking in the kitchen… so many great wonders can be created! I hope you do indeed enjoy the process… I am rooting for you! Blessings along your journey. amie sue
