Cucumber Rolls

These pretty little rolls are so easy to prepare and even easier to eat! A perfect snack for anytime of day that pairs perfectly with an Asian inspired tomato ginger dipping sauce. Make extras because they won’t last long.

Cucumbers are a highly alkalinizing and hydrating food that are rich in nutrients such as vitamins A, C, K, magnesium, silicon, and potassium. Cucumbers are also packed with antioxidants and enzymes such as erepsin which helps to digest proteins and destroy parasites and tapeworms. The high chlorophyll and lignan content in the cucumber skin makes it a great anti-cancer food and can be particularly helpful in reducing the risk of estrogen related cancers such as breast, uterus, prostate, and ovarian cancer. 

Ginger is one of the world’s oldest and most popular medicinal spices. It is known to greatly aid in digestion and assimilation and is widely regarded to help prevent colds, flu, motion sickness, and vertigo. Ginger can also help to alleviate menstrual cramps, nausea, heart burn, migraines, sore throats, exhaustion, fatigue, and constipation and it is great in providing relief from the stomach flu and food poisoning. 

Zucchini contains phytonutrients that are important for prostate health as they can help to reduce the symptoms of benign prostatic hypertrophy (BOH). They also contain powerful anti-inflammatory compounds which can aid asthma, rheumatoid arthritis, and fibromyalgia. Zucchini is also known to be particularly beneficial for hypertension, cataracts, macular degeneration, atherosclerosis, diabetes, edema, multiple sclerosis, and stomach and colon cancers. 

Dates contain anti-inflammatory and anti-infective properties which make it an excellent food for those who suffer with chronic infections and auto-immune disorders. They also help to control heart rate and blood pressure which offers protection against strokes and coronary heart diseases.

One raw crushed clove of garlic contains the antibiotic equivalent of 100,000 units of penicillin and has been proven to be more effective than both penicillin and tetracycline in suppressing certain types of disease carrying agents. Garlic contains a compound called allicin which has been shown to help significantly lower cholesterol and blood pressure by inhibiting the HMG-CoA reductase enzyme within the liver cells and blocking platelet clot formation in the blood vessels. 

Ingredients:

For the rolls

2 cucumbers
Any desired sliced veggies for filling (examples: bell pepper, carrot, cabbage, mango, green onion, avocado)

For the dipping sauce

1/4 cup tomato
1/4 orange juice
2 tbsp raw hulled hemp seeds
1 cup zucchini, peeled and diced
1/2 inch jalepeno without seeds
1 inch sized piece of ginger
2 dates
1 garlic clove 

Directions: 

For the dipping sauce, blend all ingredients in a blender until smooth. Set aside. 
Slice thin sheets of cucumber lengthwise using a mandolin or vegetable peeler. Starting with one end, place any desired fillings and roll towards the end, using a dab of sauce to stick in place. Make as many as desired and enjoy! 

Serves 2
