 Deviled eggs are so delicious and I love it when someone brings them to a party. While these eggs made into deviled eggs are so tasty, they are also hard to make. Deviled eggs are a time-consuming recipe that never gives good results. 

 The one time that I made deviled eggs from hard-boiled eggs, I had a hard time taking the shells off the eggs. So most of my deviled egg containers looked awful. After wasting several hours making deviled eggs, they did not look that good. They were not worthy to bring to a party. So I vowed to never make a deviled egg recipe again.

 Several years later, I decided to follow a plant-based diet and decided to not eat eggs. My new meal plan needed delicious recipes that do not contain animal products and I have been busy in the kitchen creating plant-based recipes.

Chickpeas are a wonderful ingredient for vegan copycat recipes

 I think chickpeas are one of my favorite plant-based recipe ingredients for vegan copycat recipes. My favorite recipe that uses chickpeas is vegan tuna. These somewhat nutty-tasting beans can be used in so many different ways to create delicious meatless recipes. Chickpeas are also very adaptable to many different types of textures. They can give a recipe texture or they can be cooked longer to become a creamy protein addition for recipes.

 For this recipe, canned chickpeas will give the creamy texture. If you decide to use dried chickpeas, I recommend cooking them a bit longer so they have a softer texture. The softer texture will give this recipe the creamy taste that you want. Cooking chickpeas in the pressure cooker is super easy. Head here to learn how to cook chickpeas in the pressure cooker.

How to make Vegan Deviled Egg Filling

 Making this delicious vegan spread is super easy. You simply combine all the ingredients in a bowl and mash them into a creamy spread. You can also use a food processor or a high-speed blender for a creamier texture.  

 If you decide to mash the chickpeas in a bowl, you can use a potato masher, a fork, or the bottom of a glass. This method requires some patience so I recommend using a blender.
