Growing up I always loved to make cucumber sandwiches. They were so good and so refreshing.
Looking up lunch ideas I came across these cute cucumber sandwiches sans bread.
Here is my rendition of the cutest little lunch idea
One cucumber (thicker kind, Long English are too narrow)
1/2 avocado or Hummus
1Tbsp cream cheese (optional)
Take your cucumber and cut it in 3-4 pieces then cut in half.
Use a spoon to scoop out the seeds and throw the seeds in your composter.
Mash up avocado and optional cream cheese. I used hummus for my second batch.
Scoop filling into both sides of cucumber and toss some sprouts on top. Put both sides together to make your sandwich.
Here’s the finished product. As you can see I added some celery, it serves two purposes- snack and to help the sandwiches from not moving around.
You can certainly eat these whole but since I am the most ungraceful eater ill just eat them as halves.
So This week is off to a late start.
Today, Tuesday Jan 1 2013 is the beginning of our month gluten free. Due to my lack of organization I cant start till Thursday. Today I’m meal planning and researching. Tomorrow is grocery day and baking day.
This Recipe I love for lunch. Avocado is one of my fav’s and who doesn’t like hummus!
Its super easy and great for those frantic morning “oh shit I have to pack my lunch” kind of days.
