5 Minute Turmeric Egg Salad

For many, eggs are strictly a morning staple, but they shouldn’t be! Eggs are a perfect option for all meals as they are inexpensive, nutritious, protein packed and super tasty too. One of my favorite quick lunch or dinner options, is a simple egg salad sandwich. I love the convenience, how quickly they can be made and how there are so many options to mix it up to meet whatever craving your are having. For those looking to scramble up their lunch or dinner, this recipe for protein-packed turmeric egg salad sandwich is a must!

For this recipe I used hard boiled eggs, low fat greek yogurt, and yummy turmeric spice all of which have lots of great health benefits! Turmeric egg salad is perfect for serving on bread, with crackers, atop a salad or even just eating by the forkful. The protein keeps you fuel longer while providing a sustainable source of energy and is especially great for a post-workout refuel. Turmeric is a powerful spice that is believed to help boost your immune system and has anti-inflammatory properties. Low-fat greek yogurt has less calories than typical sandwich spreads and adds a tangy twist as well.

Most weeks, I make a big batch of hard-boiled eggs in my Instant Pot (hands down the best way to make eggs that taste great and are a breeze to peel) or if in a pinch you can purchase them already prepared at the deli of your local grocery store.

This meal is packed with so many egg-ceptionally benefits and takes less than 5 minutes to make! The recipe below is simply a suggestion and you can always add more veggies of your choice or even more turmeric if you want a super flavorful salad mix.

    I have heard of all the benefits of Tumeric and this would be an easy way to incorporate it into a meal. I have never actually had it but, am willing to try this recipe and use the yogurt versus mayonnaise as well.

    Egg salad is my favorite! I had given it up to eat healthier but your recipe uses greek yogurt instead of mayo so I must try!

    Did you know that recently researchers published a study saying that kids who eat eggs regularly show more robust brain development because of the omega 3s and 9s? I’m going to write a post about that soon. If it’s okay with you, I’m going to include a link to this recipe. Delicious!! I love this blog!
