Description

Delicious and refreshing cucumber cups, stuffed with carrot hummus. These are super easy to make and they are so pretty!

This recipe make 12 cucumber cups.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound Carrots, Washed And Peeled
  • 3 cloves Garlic, Roughly Chopped
  • 3 Tablespoons Olive Oil, Divided
  • 2 whole Cucumbers
  • 1 teaspoon Cumin
  • 1 teaspoon Coriander
  • 1 teaspoon Honey
  • ½ teaspoons Black Pepper
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • ½ Tablespoons Tahini
  • 2 Tablespoons Lemon Juice
  • 2 Tablespoons Chopped Cilantro

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350ºF and place the carrots and garlic on a baking tray. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Roast for 15 minutes.

Whilst carrots are roasting, grab cucumbers and, using a vegetable peeler or a small knife, cut strips down the cucumbers. Cut each cucumber into slices about 2 to 3 inches long, depending on how deep you want your cucumber cups. Using a melon baller or teaspoon, scoop most of the flesh from each cucumber, leaving a little at the bottom of the cup to hold in the filling.

Remove the carrots and garlic from the oven and place in a food processor with all the remaining ingredients, including the last 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Whizz on high speed for 2–3 minutes, until hummus is smooth and delicious!

Leave the hummus to cool in the fridge, before taking a tablespoon and dolloping the hummus into the cucumber cups!

I really enjoyed this. The hummus was really different. I roasted the carrots about twice the time suggested and they still had really small crunchy bits after processing in the food processor, but I actually like that. I did get them very small but still had a little texture. The hummus together with the cucumber is what really makes it. Those flavors combined is great and the presentation is very cute!
