Recipe Directions

Cut zuccini in half, then cut lengths about an inch. Cut around corners to shape like eggs if you like. Scoop out centers with small side of melon-baller. I made this recipe with sunflower seeds for this one. Add horseradish, pickle, and artichoke hearts to the food processor with the eggcellent scramble. Add chopped purple onion and celery.
Take melon-baller and scoop out the egg mixture and place in zuccini “eggs”. Top with paprica. You may want to oil the outside of the zuccini if it’s going to be a while before you eat them. Also grind a little sea salt onto zuccini to make it a little more tasty.
I put a couple of artichoke hearts in mine because they are supposed to be good for cleansing the liver. This could also be made with cucumbers but the zuccini have a more egg-like quality to them. I haven’t left these over night so I do not know if you can make them ahead.
I threw in a few cherry tomatoes and you can’t even tell they’re in there but they are good to eat for the lycopene. I also used a batch I had made of the eggcellent scramble that had pumpkin seeds on the top and I just blended them into the mix too.

A no-cholesterol picnic treat. No salmonella to worry about either. A mellonballer helps make this one quick and easy.

Sweet Adeline, I don't believe anyone "took the recipe down". According to Ray, when they did the site upgrades a couple of months ago a number of the older recipes did not "translate" to the new format. It's a glitch that they are still working on.
