Heres another delicious healthy snack that can easily be prepared by anyone! Even if you think you have no talent in the kitchen and think you’d be better at driving into the Taco Bell drive through, trust me, you cannot mess this up! Your taste buds and stomach will thank me for it later.

Stuffed Cucumber Rolls 

Serves: 4-5

Ingredients:

  • 1 cucumber, whole
  • 1 bunch scallions
  • hummus of your choice

First, slice the entire cucumber into 1-inch thick slices. Use a melon baller to scoop out the inners from the cucumber slices. Chop the cucumber scooped out into fine pieces and mix in with hummus. Dollop 1 Tbsp of hummus mixture into each cucumber. Top with chopped scallions and serve.

For this recipe I made my own hummus, but if you on a time constraint or want to use to easier route buying pre-made hummus works perfectly.

  • 2 clove garlic
  • 1 cup chick peas, cooked and drained
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • Juice from half a lemon
  • 1/2 cup shredded carrots
  • Salt, pepper, smoked paprika to taste

Place the garlic clove in a food processor and process until finely chopped. Add remaining ingredients until desired consistency is reached. I slowly added 1/4 cup water to thin out the hummus. If more water is needed, add 1 Tbsp at a time to avoid a watery product.
