  • 1 dozen hardboiled eggs
  • 1 avocado, peeled and mashed
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon caper berries
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • Parsley and paprika for garnish


Start by slicing eggs in half. Place all the whites on a platter and all the yolks in a bowl. Combine the avocado with the lemon juice and add to egg yolks, mixing together well. Add all the remaining ingredients to the yolks and mix well with a food processor.

Place mixture in a well-sealed plastic bag and chill in the fridge for 2 hours. When you’re ready to serve, cut the tip off the bag in one corner and pipe the mixture into each egg white, making a peak. Place all the eggs on a platter and garnish with parsley and paprika for color.
