Feel free to add additional ingredients as you see fit such as chopped green onion or chopped bacon. You can also change up the flavors by using flavored salt.


1/4 cup broccoli rice (alternatively, either finely chop or process 1/4 cup whole broccoli in a food processor until you reach a “rice” consistency)

1/2 celery stalk, chopped

2 hard boiled eggs (separate yolks and whites)

1/4 cup red bell pepper, chopped

3 Tablespoons mayonnaise

1/2 teaspoon yellow mustard

Pinch of paprika

Black pepper and salt, to taste


  1. In a large mixing bowl, mash the boiled egg yolks. Add the mayonnaise and mustard. Stir to combine.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients and gently stir to combine.
  3. Season to taste and enjoy! We suggest serving in lettuce wraps. See last week’s post for a great alternative to iceberg lettuce.
