Ingredients
  1. 3 medium cucumbers (each will yield about 6 slices)
  2. ¼ cup store-bought basil pesto
  3. 6 slices GO Veggie Lactose & Soy Free Mozzarella Slices, cut into ½ inch strips
  4. 6 oz deli smoked turkey breast, shredded
  5. 1 bell pepper, thinly sliced into matchsticks
  6. 1/2 cup spinach, shredded
  7. salt and pepper, for seasoning
Instructions
  1. Slice the cucumbers lengthwise on a mandoline at about a 2mm setting. If you don’t have a mandoline, you can always use a vegetable peeler. Place the cucumber slices on parchment paper and pat dry with a paper towel.
  2. Spread about 1 teaspoon of pesto on each cucumber, then evenly distribute cheese, turkey, bell pepper and spinach on each. Sprinkle with a little salt and black pepper. Roll up and place seam down. If you want an even nicer presentation, you can stick a toothpick in the middle for easy appetizers! Serve with extra pesto or sauce of choice. Makes about 18 rolls.
But seriously these little rolls came about because of my abundance of veggies and other goodies in my fridge. They’re kind of perfect because they’re healthy, low-carb and also totally poppable. The best part is that you can either use fresh zucchini or cucumber from your garden (or the market) to make up the roll. The inside is up to you! Here’s what I used
  1. Cucumber or zucchini: Just slice or peel thin strips of either veggie with either a mandoline or a vegetable peeler. You’ll want them to be thick enough so that they hold your fillings and so that they won’t fall apart once you roll.
  2. Spreads: You can either use your favorite hummus or pesto. I chose pesto but I’ve also make a spicy hummus version which was FANTASTIC. For a party, I recommend serving both! Guests go crazy for these little bites.
  3. Fillings: I had a ton of lactose free GO Veggie! Mozzarella slices in my fridge so I threw some of those in the cucumber roll ups for added flavor & protein! Next time I might try their Pepper Jack slices because I’m a firm believer that nearly all of my meals need to have a little kick.
  4. I added turkey to these but you could also leave these vegetarian by adding in extra veggies of choice such as carrot strips, bell peppers, etc. (I used red bell pepper & spinach!)
