Filled Cucumber Curls

The mushroom and tomato pâté is delicious, but you can substitute any dip or filling of your choice.


Mushroom and Tomato Pâté:

  • 15 ml (1 Tbsp) cooking oil
  • 1 large onion, coarsely chopped
  • 125 g button mushrooms, coarsely chopped
  • 15 g (about 8) sun-dried tomatoes, coarsely chopped
  • 5 ml (1 tsp) sugar
  • 125 ml (½ cup) fresh breadcrumbs
  • 125 g cream cheese or smooth cottage cheese
  • 15 ml (1 Tbsp) chopped fresh parsley or 5 ml (1 tsp) dried
  • 45 ml (3 Tbsp) Spur BBQ Sauce

For Serving:

  • 2 large cucumbers


Heat oil in a medium, heavy-based saucepan. Add onion and sauté. Add mushrooms and sun-dried tomatoes and fry for about 2 minutes until soft. Remove from heat.

Place in a food processor with remaining ingredients and blitz to a slightly coarse texture.

Use a potato peeler to cut long, thin strips of cucumber lengthways.

Spread filling onto each strip, roll and secure with toothpicks. Serve immediately.
