Parties and pot-lucks can be especially difficult places for a hypoglycemic to eat healthy. Here is an easy, healthy appetizer that you can take with you to your next get-together.

 

Ingredients (makes about 20 bites):

  • 1 cucumber
  • 3/4 regular tub of your favorite hummus (I used red pepper for this to add some extra flavor)
  • Paprika
  • 2-3 baby carrots

 

Preparation:

*Note: I noticed that the hummus and carrot tend to dry-out fast, so I recommend making this very close to eating time or making sure you have a way to air-tight cover and refrigerate it.

*Prep tip: I recommend preparing these on something other than your final serving dish because, if you don’t, your serving dish will end up with paprika all over it.

  1. Slice the cucumber into individual slices (thick enough to hold the hummus)
  2. Top with hummus
  3. Sprinkle with paprika
  4. Cut a slice of the baby carrot and set it in the hummus
  5. Enjoy!

 

Make it Fancy:

  • Using a peeler, peel a few sections around the cucumber prior to slicing it so that the pattern on the cucumber alternates between peeled sections and non-peeled sections to create a striped pattern on the cucumber.
  • Load the hummus into a baker’s frosting bag and use a fancy tip to put the hummus on the cucumber.
  • Use other vegetables or cuts (shredded carrots, for example) as the final garnish
