Cucumbers with the seeds scooped out and filled with hummus, avocado, carrots, tomatoes, onion and sprouts. So refreshing, healthy and light and an easy low-carb, low-sodium, gluten-free, alternative to bread.

This is a quick, 5-minute lunch idea. I love the idea of using cucumbers in place of bread as a sort of garden “baguette”. You can fill them with anything you would put on a sandwich – tuna salad, chicken salad, egg salad or even cold cuts.

Cucumbers with the seeds scooped out and filled with hummus, avocado, tomatoes, onion and sprouts. So refreshing, healthy and light!

I got this idea from the Low-So Good Cookbook which features recipes for low sodium diets. Since bread tends to be high in sodium, it’s an easy swap not just for the sodium conscience but also for gluten-free, low-carb, egg-free, and dairy-free diets.

  1. What a refreshing and quick-to-compile lunch!

  2. I ate these all week and I mixed it up a little bit. When I ran out of hummus, I used cottage cheese. These were awesome!

  3. This looks amazing! But, I don’t believe hummus is Whole30 compliant. Am I wrong? Starting a Whole30 tomorrow and would love to know!

  4. Hi, do you have a hummus recipe?

  5. These are fantastic! My first attempt came out pretty good, although not as good looking as these gorgeous photos. Thanks for the inspiration!

  6. I made these – delicious – thanks!

  7. Looks so clean and refreshing, The photos are beautiful and just scream SUMMER! I’m having it for lunch using my favorite Kings Harvest Chipotle hummus. What kind of sprouts are those? You can’t even buy alfalfa sprouts anymore 🙁 

  8. Looks good. What do you normally do with the inside of the cucumber afterwards? I made one of your zucchini boat recipes the other day but then didn’t know what to do with all the zucchini I took out.

  9. This would make the perfect dinner on a hot day! 

  10. This would be awesome with a drizzle of hot sauce!  (But I think most things would….)  Also, a great way to use the random cucumbers hiding under the leaves in my garden, surreptitiously becoming the size of baseball bats.

  11. Do you have a hummus recipe that you like and is low Smart points?

  12. What a healthy dish! The photograph is beautiful, too.
