CtBF ~ MPK ~ Beet hummus, and Eggs with homemade herb mayo

Beet hummus with Lotus root chips, and tapioca chunks.
Easily came together with a stick blender.  I used only one medium size beet, cooked in my small thermal pot, and half a can of drained and rinsed chickpeas. The rest of the ingredients scaled down (by rough estimate) accordingly.  I served the beet hummus with fried lotus root chips and boiled tapioca chunks. Goes well with hardboiled eggs with toast too.

 Eggs, hard cooked with chervil (I used Tarragon) mayo. 
My favourite serving vessel for this week, featuring toasted baguette smeared with herbed homemade mayo, Japanese cucumber, steamed butterflied sprimp, more mayo and a garnish of cilantro. 
This mayo recipe uses a whole egg! Instead of chervil which is not available where I shop, I used my home grown tarragon. A hand held stick blender brought it altogether within a minute!

I just posted your link on the CtBF page since it looked like Mardi didn't see your request.
Your hummus looks festive, and I just love your lobster plate. I hope that lobster enjoyed the egg!

I love that plate - so cute! I enjoyed the hummus, but if I make it again, it will be for a buffet table.

Hi sorry, I must have missed your request! Love this plate and I agree this was a fun recipe for a party!

I used Italian parsley in my mayo, could not find chervil. All your results look wonderful as does that beautiful serving plate.

I want that bowl. (I think it's a bowl, isn't it?) I even enlarged your photo when I saw it. Those lotus chips are another new item I've learned about from your posts. And, tapioca chips. By the way, your eggs and salad look delicious.
