Turkey Cheese-Stuffed Cucumbers
If you are someone who doesn’t eat turkey, than chicken, tuna or egg would also work great. The possibilities are endless.
HERO INGREDIENT
Cucumber

The term “cool as a cucumber” is actually derived from the cucumber’s ability to cool the temperature of the blood. Also when applied topically, cucumber really does cool the blood and eases facial swelling, which is why cucumbers are so popular in facial regimens.

Ingredients

2 large firm cucumbers – not too skinny or tough to de-core

Utensils to de-core the inside of the cucumber found in all supermarkets (the same used to take out the inside of the zucchini).

½ cup your favorite cheese in small pieces (Recommended: organic edam or cheddar cheese)

½ cup shredded turkey from a fresh turkey breast; alternatively, shred up a few slices of good quality turkey

Any jam you like (Recommended: Fig jam, Date Jam)

Method

1. De-core the cucumbers creating a hollow inside each. Make sure you don’t poke a hole in the bottom or tear the sides.  With your fingers, jab in the cheese then turkey and a bit of jam or jab in with a small spoon end. Repeat until it reaches the top of the cucumber.

2. The cucumber should be stuffed with enough fillings to feel like a sandwich!

3. You can also stuff the cucumber with Labneh and fresh zaatar, quinoa salad, roast chicken and cheese- anything you can think of...be creative.

Take note! This recipe doesn't require any spices.
