This fast and easy Keto friendly deviled egg recipe will up your appetizer game. The Japanese flavors of miso and furikake take this American classic to the next level with plenty of umami and a hint of spice.

The deviled egg was a staple if my childhood family picnics and pot lucks and it still holds a special place in my heart. They were on the table at every gathering. Grandma always made them with a blend of mayo, dijon and egg yolk dusted with paprika. I like to think that Grandma would approve of this amazing recipe by our friends at Ocean’s Balance. The miso and soy sauce balance the rich fat of the egg yolk and the spicy seaweed sprinkles (Furikake) provide a big of lunch and a touch of heat. The combination will make you a hit at that next family picnic without a doubt.

What’s Furikake?

Furikake is a Japanese condiment most often used as a topping on rice and poke bowls but it adds a salty crunchy umami kick to just about everything and it’s amazing on a deviled egg. Most furikake is from Japan and contains preservatives however we’ve found a much cleaner version with sustainably harvested seaweed from the pure waters off the coast of Maine by Ocean’s Balance. It’s the best furikake we’ve ever tasted. It comes in 3 flavors so if spice isn’t your thing substitute for the bonito flavor depending on your preference.


  • 6 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/3 cup white miso paste (use gluten-free miso for a gluten-free dish)
  • 2 T mirin (seasoned) 
  • 2 Tbsp. Soy Sauce (or Coconut Aminos)
  • Ocean’s Balance Spicy Seaweed Sprinkles


  1. Place eggs in medium-sized pot. Cover with water.  Bring to a boil over high heat.  Reduce heat to medium and continue to boil for 20 minutes.  Drain and cool.
  2. Cut eggs in half length-wise. Scoop out yolks into separate bowl.  Reserve whites. 
  3. Add remaining ingredients except the Sprinkles.  Stir well to combine. 
  4. Adjust seasoning. 
  5. Fill reserved whites making a small mound on each.
  6. Top with your choice of Bonito or Spicy Sprinkles.

Serve immediately.

This beloved Italian classic is a testament to the country's artful simplicity in the kitchen. As we delve into this cherished recipe, we'll honor the time-honored traditions of Italian cuisine by starting with dried cranberry beans, which infuse the dish with unparalleled depth of flavor and an exquisite, creamy texture.

In the Basque region of France they don't soak their signature Tolosa beans, they slowly braise them with just water, salt and olive oil. Time and heat to transform even the dense beans from dry to creamy masterpieces. This method works just as well for all heirloom beans! Read more about my bean braising experiments...
