Stuffed Cucumber Recipe

The stuffed cucumber recipe is a weird type of a breakfast salad/appetizers since peaches are added to vegetables. However, this is what gives it a different and distinctive taste in the morning time. This recipe takes 5 minutes to prepare.

Stuffed Cucumbers Recipe Ingredients:

  • 1-2 large cucumbers
  • 4 yellow peaches
  • 1 soft celery rib
  • ¼ kilogram (9 ounces) Steamed Asparagus
  • 1-2 leafs of Romanian lettuce
  • 3 tablespoons plain yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • Dash of salt and spices to taste
Method for Preparing the Stuffed Cucumbers:
  • Cut a triangle shape into the cucumber and scoop out the middle section (seeds) and the pulp with a spoon. Chop the triangular section to small cubes. Cut the peaches, asparagus, apple and the celery rib to small cubes.
  • In a separate bowel mix the mayonnaise, lemon juice and yogurt with salt and spices to make a dressing, then mix all the ingredients together with the dressing.
  • Place the lettuce leafs on top of the cucumber then add the mixed ingredients on top.
  • Serves 1-2 people.
Cook's Notes:
  1. When you're not in a mood for cooking, you should think about a raw diet . The stuffed cucumber for breakfast is a good quick solution .
  2. It is very easy and simple to prepare and for those who trying to lose weight or want to have a natural and healthy breakfast, use less mayonnaise and that would make the stuffed cucumber healthier.

The instructions are confusing. Why is it called a "stuffed" cucmber when all the ingredients are poured over the top? And why core the cucumber just to lay it on a plate, cover it with a lettuce leaf and pour the "stuffing" over the top? Very confusing to me, even after rereading more that once.
