Stuffed Cucumbers

Published by on

You know that old famous saying, “When life gives you cucumbers, make stuffed cucumbers”? No? Me neither…

This week I went to the grocery store to pick up some zucchini to make zoodles (recipe coming soon), and upon returning home, realized I bought four cucumbers instead; don’t ask, it has been a rough week.

Now I love cucumbers as much as the next person – they are so cool and refreshing. Four cucumbers, however, without meaning to buy them is a bit much. I can only eat so many cucumber slices dipped in ranch dressing.

Therefore, this afternoon I decided to get creative and whip up a quick snack. Filled with protein-packed, garlicky cottage cheese, and topped with a sprinkling of green onions, these stuffed cucumbers are a perfect pick-me-up for any time of the day. Enjoy!

Stuffed Cucumbers

Serves: 1
Time: 5 minutes


  • 1 English cucumber, peeled and sliced into 1 1/2 inch pieces
  • 1/2 cup cottage cheese (Lactaid makes a lactose free variety)
  • 1/8 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 green onion, diced
  • salt and pepper, to taste


  1. In a small bowl combine cottage cheese, garlic powder, sliced green onion, salt, and pepper.
  2. Using a small spoon, scoop out the inside of each cucumber slice; be careful to leave the bottom of each slice intact as you don’t want to cottage cheese to fall through.
  3. Generously fill each cucumber slice with cottage cheese mixture and enjoy!
