About this Recipe
Cucumber & Hummus Bites are one of my favorite healthy snacks. These gluten free gems offer a little hit of protein atop a crispy cucumber round and a tasty snack that you can whip up in five minutes or less! They’re also a great option for a before dinner appy, and with the lovely contrast of bright red and green, they make a stunning little plate to take along to a pot luck or gathering.
- Cheese or
- Cherry Tomatoes
Looking for an alternative to those crazy gluten free crackers that are so hard that they chip your teeth when you bite down on them?? Try cucumber rounds! Cucumber rounds offer a fresh, crisp alternative for cracker type snacks. Fresh and versatile, they’re an excellent option.
Step by Step Instructions
Step 1 – Wash ‘Em Up!
Wash and dry the cucumber and tomatoes.
Step 2 – Prep
Slice cucumber into thin rounds (about 1/8th of an inch and thicker if you prefer!) and cut the cherry tomatoes in half length wise. Slice the cheese into thin slices and cut the slices to fit the approximate width of the cucumber rounds. No need to fuss with the width of the cucumber slices or cheese. This is a no-fuss snack – make the slices as thick or thin as you like them!
Step 3 – Build
Spread about a teaspoon of hummus on the cucumber rounds, place a slice of cheese over the hummus and top with half a cherry tomato.
This is a variable recipe – make six for a snack or make 25 to take along to a party!
Step 4 – Enjoy!
Plate them up and enjoy!
