In the Kitchen: BBQ and Deviled Eggs with Caviar Recipe

Those of you who follow this blog regularly know I've been trying to clean up my diet. A lot of the dietary changes I've been making include eating more plant-based foods. I still eat animal products occasionally though, and when I do, I try to stick to anti-inflammatory animal products rich in omega-3 fatty acids.

Today I'm going to share with you an anti-inflammatory meal I concocted that was very good. It was inspired by some food I had at a Baltimore vegetarian restaurant called LAND OF KUSH. I'd planned to blog about my experience there, but the food was so good I ate it before I could take a picture :-( Ah well, maybe next time. The meal was also inspired by some wonderful deviled eggs prepared for a potluck by one of my neighbors.

So here's how you recreate the meal:

Vegan BBQ:

  • Marinade pieces of seitan in BBQ sauce overnight. I use this SEITAN (in traditional) and this VERY DELICIOUS BBQ SAUCE.
  • Once seitan is marinated, add 1/2 cup each of green peppers and onions to a skillet and saute with veggie broth on medium heat until tender.
  • Next add seitan and desired amount of BBQ sauce to skillet and season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Cook on medium until seitan is heated to desired temperature (note: seitain is precooked, so you only need to heat for warmth)
  • I like adding the BBQ to a lightly toasted brioche bun for a sandwich.

Deviled eggs:

  • Boil omega-3 enriched eggs
  • Cut cooked eggs in half and remove yolks
  • Smash yolk with fork and mix 1 tsp of mayo with every yolk. I use Trader Joe's low-fat mayo because it's vegan (though not advertised as such), low calorie, and tastes good.
  • Add a small amount of fresh squeezed lemon juice, dill weed, and freshly chopped chives to taste to yolk filling.
  • Add yolk filling to eggs whites and top with a scoop of bowfin roe caviar. 


  1. This is helpful since we've had to change our diet too. So nice to connect to you! Out of curiosity, how did you find my blog?

    1. Hi Sarah. I'm glad it was helpful to you. I believe I ran into you through Hattat

    2. Yes, I do follow the Hattats too. So nice to connect with you!

  2. cleaning up the diet.. ughhh. lol. I'm trying to eat better also, but some days the cookies win. : ) Your dinner sounds great!!
    Have a great weekend.

    1. I love cookies. I just try to eat them in moderation now.

  3. Tom and I were just talking about eating healthier. This is an especially difficult time as the weather is so crappy - lots of comfort food. We feel guilty. Not getting a lot of walks either due to all the snow and icy. More coming, too.

    1. I can't wait for warm weather so I can walk more. I really miss it. Whet I am finding in my journey is that comfort foods can be healthy. You just have to relearn how to cook.
