CUCUMBER SPROUT WRAPS

I have been thinking about making these for a long time now. I saw somewhere that someone made wraps with zucchini slices and thought it was an interesting concept. So last night, in attempts to feed my mother and sister Simon and I adventured in to the world of veggie wrap wraps. We started off with the zucchini idea I had seen but soon realized that whoever did that must have been lying because zucchinis do not wrap very easily without breaking. Thus the cucumber wrap came to be. I was a little apprehensive at first but they turned out really well. I used a sunflower lime pate and alfalfa sprouts but you could use any pate or spread you like and any sprouts or other veggies you want! So versatile right!?
CUCUMBER SPROUT WRAPS
Ingredients:
-1 cucumbers
-1 cup sunflower seeds
-Juice of 2 limes
-1 clove garlic
-1/4 cup water
-1/4 tsp tumeric
-1/2 tsp cumin
-1/2 cup alfalfa sprouts
-toothpicks
Instructions:
2) Cut the cucumber into very thin slices. Be careful! You could use a mandolin for this if you have one. 

3) Lay the cucumber strips flat and spread the pate over them. 

4) Top the pate with a small amount of sprouts. 

4) Roll the cucumber strips starting at the smallest end and secure the roll with a toothpick. 
Enjoy and have a beautiful Tuesday!
