Recipe-Zucchini Roll-Ups

Prep Time

20 minutes

Cooking Time

N/A

Yields

10 rolls

Ingredients

  • 1 medium zucchini
  • 1/2 cup hummus (see recipe for Happy Hummus or Power Greens Hummus)
  • 1/2 cup quinoa, cooked
  • 1 small bunch cilantro
  • 1/4 cup finely sliced red pepper

Directions

  1. Using a mandoline slicer, slice the zucchini lengthwise into thin strips
  2. In a small bowl, mix together the hummus and quinoa. Spread about 1 – 2 teaspoons of the filling onto the zucchini and spread it out evenly with a spoon
  3. Lay the pepper strips (3 – 4) so that they stick out of one end of the roll.
  4. Place a sprig of cilantro in between the pepper strips.
  5. Roll the zucchini up like sushi.
  6. Secure the end with toothpicks if necessary.
  7. Repeat until all ingredients are used.

Notes

This should be made on the day it will be served. It can keep a couple of days (for leftovers to munch on) but the initial serving should be made on the same day. It tends to get a little floppy, too wet, the longer it sits.

The quinoa and the hummus can be prepared (or purchased) ahead of time
