To make the cucumber roll-ups you need 1-2 pieces of thinly peeled cucumber per person.
To cut the cucumber really thin use a sharp veggie peeler and run it along the full length of the cucumber until you have good 1 to 1 ½ inch slices – put these aside.
The Pea/Mint Pate Stuffing: makes 2 cups
Put the following in your food processor and process until chunky:
• the cucumber pieces that were left over (about ½ cup)
• ½ cup pecans (soaked for ½ hour then drained)
• 5-10 large mint leaves (the more if you love mint)
• ¼ cup of each chopped: celery & onion
• 1 clove garlic
• ¼ cup apple cider vinegar
Put this into a bowl then fold in ¼ cup fresh peas.
Lay out the cucumber slices and cut into 3-5 inch lengths.
Put a spoonful of stuffing on each piece and roll up tightly –
then put them in a container or on a plate and add more
stuffing until they look like the picture above.
Keep cool until ready to serve – they keep well overnight.
