Serve up a show-stopping side dish anytime of the day. Enhanced with a dash of our Sprinkle Veggie Seasoning, these scrumptious Beetroot Devilled Eggs are sure to add a pop of colour and flavour to your salad, canapé or snack.


  • 6 XL free-range eggs
  • 1 x large jar pickled beetroot (± 780g)
  • 1 Tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 Tbsp crème fraîche or sour cream
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • Cape Herb & Spice Veggie Seasoning SPRINKLE


Start off by bringing a pot of water to a simmer and hard boil the eggs for 12 minutes.

Then plunge the eggs into a bowl filled with ice water to halt the cooking and then peel them.

Next up, place the eggs into a glass jar or glass container (You don’t want the beetroot to stain something plastic.)

Cover the eggs with the bright pink brine from the pickled beetroots. Seal and place in the fridge overnight / for 12 hours.

The next day, halve the eggs lengthwise and place the yolks in a small bowl.

Add the mayonnaise, crème fraîche, Dijon mustard, lemon zest and season generously with Cape Herb & Spice Sprinkle Veggie Seasoning. Mash with a fork or small whisk until smooth and taste to adjust seasoning.

Using a spatula, scoop the filling into a piping bag or in a pinch - a ziplock bag and squeeze the filling into one corner and press any air out on top. Snip the bottom corner off with a pair of scissors and pipe the filling into each egg white, full enough that the filling mounds a little over the top.

Sprinkle with Cape Herb & Spice Sprinkle Veggie Seasoning.

3 delicious ways to serve them:

  1. Serve as is topped with micro herbs as a dinner party canapé.

  3. Serve in any salad as a luxurious added protein and creamy element.

Add some pickled beetroot to the salad to reinforce the flavour and colour.
