Meatless Monday: Cucumber Avocado Rolls

These are super simple to prepare and they make a great appetizer for vegans, vegetarians, gluten-free, and healthy eaters. All you have to do is whip up this avocado spread and smear it across a slice of cucumber and roll it up! 

Cucumber Avocado Rolls


  • 1 Avocado
  • ¼ cup of basil leaves (a small bunch)
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 cucumber
  • 2 teaspoons fresh squeezed lime juice
  • ¼ teaspoon Salt
  • 1 Tbsp. of Nutritional Yeast
  • Several grinds of black pepper
  • Smoked or Sweet Paprika for garnish 

  • Instructions 

    1. Toss all the ingredients (except the cucumber and paprika) into a food processor or blender. Or if you would like to do it by hand, finely mince the garlic and basil, and mash all the ingredients together with a fork until smooth and creamy.
    2. Use a mandoline or potato peeler to cut long thin strips from the cucumber. 
    3. Take a cucumber strip and spread a thin coat of the avocado mixture along the length of the cucumber. A little goes a long way! Make sure to get some avocado all the way to the end, so it will stick the roll together.  
    4. Roll it up! No toothpicks needed. Do the same with the rest of your cucumber strips. Sprinkle with a little paprika and serve right away.  

    Cucumber is watery and softens quickly, so if you plan on taking these to a party, prepare the avocado spread that morning, and store in an air tight container. Bring a whole cucumber and potato peeler and assemble at the party.
