1 large cucumber (optional zucchini)
1/3 c. hummus
1/4 c. crumbled feta
1/4 c. chopped kalamata olives (optional)
1/4 c. chopped cherry tomatoes
Small sprigs fresh dill
Lemon wedges (optional)
- Using a vegetable peeler, slice cucumber into thin flat strips. Lay slices down on paper towels to drain excess moisture.
- On a cutting board or clean work surface, lay two slices on top of each other. Spread a thin layer of hummus on top of each slice, then sprinkle feta, kalamata olives, and cherry tomatoes on top.
- Tightly roll each cucumber slice. Stick a small sprig of dill into each sushi piece. Squeeze fresh lemon juice on top, if using.
Benefits of Hummas!
In addition to protein and fiber, the chickpeas used in hummus are high in iron, folate, phosphorus and B vitamins (all especially important for vegetarians and vegans who may be lacking in these nutrients). Lemon juice also contains a high level of immunity-boosting vitamin C and antioxidants.
