Cucumber sandwich, simple, fast and light

in food •  last year 

¡Greetings Steemians friends!

Hello everyone, it is a pleasure for me to return with a simple and light recipe for all of you, in my search for foods with a healthy touch I imagined a sandwich without bread, which we could substitute for cucumber, after trying several combinations I stayed with this one that I present today.

Cucumber Sandwich!


The preparation is very easy, I will try to illustrate all the steps for a better visualization of the procedure.

Let's get to work..

We need the following ingredients:

Leg Ham
salt and pepper
Cream Cheese
Parsley for decoration

First of all, let's make sure we wash all our ingredients thoroughly.

We wash the cucumber


We peel the cucumber


Wash and peel the carrot


We open the cucumber in half (I usually make channels with the fork, but it is to preference)


We proceed to eliminate all the seeds of the cucumber, with the help of a spoon, thus we create a channel in the center of the cucumber and we prepare it for our filling.


Grate the carrot


Salt and pepper for the cucumber


Stuffed with carrots and cream cheese (in the quantities of your choice)


We add ham


we can add several layers if we like


We close the cucumber very carefully


In this case I chopped it in half, but you can also chop it into smaller pieces, like snacks.


And ready..a little parsley for garnish and enjoy it.

I hope you like this simple recipe and any comments are welcome.

Enjoy eating healthy, until next time.

Nice sandwiches, but sandwich without meat is not a sandwich!

So vegetarians don't eat sandichw?? I think it's a matter of taste.

Nice post mate. Clean and the images are set really nice. Feels easy to follow all the steps.

Plus looks tasty! :)

Another easy one to make. I will make this but replace ham with vegemeat and cream cheese with vegan cheese to make it a more vegan sandwich :D

That sounds like a great idea! In my country we are a little more limited with this kind of products, if you get it it it would not be affordable for your pocket, so we work with what we have:(( but if you do please share it)

It is only now that we have vegan cheese and it is pricey. I know some steemians who posted about making your own cheese but even the ingredients needed are pricey. I like how you innovate common food and make them more interesting.

hmmmm this looks delicious! i should recommend this to my Dad. Cucumber is good for hypertension i guess haha

Cucumbers contain potassium, which is related to lowering blood pressure. A proper balance of potassium both outside and inside the cells is crucial for your body to function properly.
Like an electrolyte, potassium is a positively charged ion that must maintain a certain concentration (almost 30 times higher inside than outside the cells) in order to perform its functions, which include interacting with sodium to help control the transmission of nerve impulses, muscle contraction, and heart function.

This information seems to be beneficial to your father, I got it from the internet.

oh wow! thank you for this! i really appreciate it! 😊

Look at all the goodness of cucumber.... it is definitely a super healthy, delicious and economical option.

Cucumbers are composed of 95 percent water, making them an ideal refreshing and moisturizing food.
Cucumbers contain an anti-inflammatory flavonol called fisetin that appears to play an important role in brain health.
Cucumbers also contain polyphenols called lignans, which may help reduce the risk of breast, uterine, ovarian, and prostate cancer.
Cucumber extract helps reduce unwanted inflammation, in part by inhibiting the activity of pro-inflammatory enzymes (including cyclooxygenase 2 or COX-2).
Cucumbers are low in calories and high in fiber, which makes them useful for both weight loss and digestive health.

This is really healthy and nutritious. It's great for the body when we eat more healthy foods. Thanks for posting!

in addition to healthy and delicious, very easy to prepare, thank you for your kind comment, I wish you a very happy afternoon.

@melvadg I am all for healthy eating. Thanks for sharing.

Besides, the cucumber is a diuretic par excellence, and with all that it is great to taste it, thanks to you for the time.

That looks so good, I remember seeing a sandwich wrap made with lettuce I was amazed thanks for sharing.

We have to look for options that simplify life, so everything is valid, thanks for the visit.

Interesante receta, nunca imagine un sandwish sin pan, pero es bastante saludable el que acabas de mostrar. saludos.

siempre es bueno probar algo diferente :)

¡Se ve riquísimo! No lo había visto antes.. lo voy a probar.

entonces me gustaría que luego me contaras tu experiencia, saludos :)

This sounds good! I can't have bread so I often use other things but I've never tried cucumber. I use lettuce leaves a bit but I also use egg. I crack an egg, beat it up and then put half/half mixture into 2 egg rings. I cook them both side and that becomes my bread. I'm keen to try cucumber now though... thanks for the tip! : )


That looks delicious!

It is!! Thank you for sharing your idea... I love picking up tips like these!! : )

Se me hizo agua la boca. Delicioso y muy linda tu presentación.

Se ve muy rica tu comida, creo que lo intentare hacer :D

espero puedas hacerlo pronto :)

Tasty and healthy

good profit
