One thing I’ve learned to rely on since having a baby are quick, easy snacks — or mink meals. It’s not that I don’t have time to make food (although sometimes it does seem like that!), I just have so much I like to cram into my ‘free’ time when Hunter’s napping that eating suddenly turned into a quick affair.

Making a big batch of protein packed egg salad was one of my go to mini meal this week.

Instead of mayo I subbed in hummus with a touch of nutritional yeast for an added cheezy flavor.

Make ahead meals like these will definitely be a weekly thing!

Egg-Hummus Salad

Ingredients

  • 5 eggs, hard boiled
  • 1/3 cup hummus
  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1/2 orange bell pepper, small diced
  • 1/4 cup green onion, minced
  • Pinch of sea salt and pepper

Directions

  1. Roughly chop the eggs and place in a bowl. Mix in the bell pepper and green onion. Stir in the hummus, nutritional yeast, water, sea salt and pepper until combined.
  2. Serve on crackerss, in between 2 slices of bread or wrapped up in a lettuce leaf.

What will the protein star be for next weeks quick and easy mini meal? Salmon, tuna, chicken… lentils? Wait and see!

  1. That looks delicious!! Eggs are definitely my biggest pregnancy craving and a great way for me to get lots of protein being a dairy free vegetarian. I will definitely be making this this week!!

  2. Hi Heather, Thanks so much for stopping by my blog! You have a gorgeous blog here.

    I LOVE the idea of using hummus in egg salad! Great way to bump up the flavor and protein. I will definitely try this!
