Looking for a healthy snack to liven up the lunchbox? We know it can be hard continuously coming up with fresh, healthy, new ideas to fill the lunchbox – ones that will actually be eaten. This fun and easy to make cucumber sushi is a lunchbox winner! It not only looks great, but it tastes great too with an added Spirulina energy hit!
Created by Lifestream Naturopath Karin Spicer N.D.
4 tablespoons hummus or almond butter
1 teaspoon Lifestream Spirulina Balance or Boost
1 telegraph cucumber
Prepare the filling
Combine the Hummus or Almond butter with the Lifestream Spirulina Balance or Boost.
Mix together well.
Prepare the cucumber
Take a telegraph cucumber and slice it into sushi-sized 1-2 inch pieces. Hollow out the seeds from the centre with a spoon. You can remove some or all of the cucumber skin, then roll the outside in a mix of sesame and poppy seeds.
Fill the cucumber cavity with the hummus or almond butter mixture, sprinkle the seed mixture on top of the sushi filling.
A tasty and healthy lunchbox treat for kids and adults!
Top tip: When you are hollowing out the cucumber leave one end intact so that the filling doesn’t fall out the opposite end.
