DIRECTIONS

Combine all the ingredients, except the eggs, in a bowl. Set aside.

Carefully peel the eggs, without scratching the whites. Slice each egg lengthwise and toss the yolks into the bowl with all the other ingredients. Arrange the whites on a platter.

Mix the contents of the bowl well by mashing them together with a fork; add salt to taste. Using a spoon, put a bit of the yolk mixture back into each of the whites and serve them on a platter at room temperature.

You can sprinkle the tops of the eggs with spices- I like using sumac, za'atar and smoked paprika.
