This can be a quick snack and when added to a side salad will make a great refreshing lunch. I love to eat this paired with a simple sprout salad (extra recipe idea is in the tips below!).

Recipe_Sasha_Cucumber-Rolls_withFREEcardEQUIPMENT: Food processor (or blender), mandoline

INGREDIENTS
1 cup raw cashews, soaked for 4-6 hours
2 Tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
Handful of fresh dill (around 2/3 cup)
1/2 teaspoon natural salt
4 Tablespoons water
(optional) small clove garlic

INSTRUCTIONS
1. Process the soaked, drained cashews in the food processor. The mixture will become kind of sticky and form clumps on the side. Make sure to scrape down any nuts that are stuck along the side.
2. Add the remaining ingredients, and process until smooth and creamy.
3. Use a mandoline to slice the cucumbers thinly lengthwise.
4. Take one strip of the cucumber at a time and put a spoonful of the dill cream cheese on the cucumber. Fill the cucumber rolls with enough cheese that you can see the cheese from the open ends. Roll into a little cute package.
5. When plating, place each roll with the open side down on the plate and top with a sprig of dill.

CHEF’S TIPS:

*For extra decoration, you can wrap a chive around each roll.

*Make a full plate for a party, or make as a fun snack.

*EASY SALAD. Place a handful of fresh sprouts (homemade or store bought) on your plate. Drizzle the sprouts with a little olive oil, lemon juice, and a pinch of natural salt. Finally, top with 3-4 cucumber rolls on the bed of sprouts, and enjoy!

ABOUT SASHA

Sasha CampbellWhen Sasha lost both parents to cancer in a very short time, she didn’t let the sadness overtake her. Instead, she found ways to make this a gift. And TRULY, SHE HAS. I’ve got tingles as I think of the ways she shares her life, using raw foods, reiki, ayurveda, ETC all from a place of such love. She’s so classy – such love – so gentle. She radiates peace and love even in short, simple emails. You couldn’t miss it if you tried! Part of her specialty is in using raw foods for beauty and ayurveda as part of a seasonal eating plan. Sasha’s in Canada. Brrrr… She works with clients all over the world, though.

You can find Sasha at Blyssful Health or mentoring new Uncooking101 teachers. (Because YES! Our {raw food teacher training + mentorship} is now OPEN and at the lower intro rate, no less! With the lovely Sasha personally helping lead the way to new teachers! OH so exciting!!)
