These are a great healthy bite-site appetizer.



  • 1 English cucumber, ¼” slices
  • 1 cup clean hummus (Paul’s Hell Yeah Hummus1) – more or less if desired
  • 1020 grape or cherry tomatoes, halved lengthwise (one half for each slice)
  • Fresh parsley leaves, whole or chopped
  • Red Pepper Flakes, sprinkled on top of hummus
  • Paprika, sprinkled on top of hummus


  • Fresh dill or dried dill in place of paprika
  • Sweet or roasted peppers in place of tomatoes


  1. Slice cucumbers
  2. Spoon hummus onto each slice and spread evenly
  3. Sprinkle red pepper flakes and paprika (dried dill if you’re using it)
  4. Place one halved tomato in the center of each cucumber slice (it will stick perfectly in the hummus)
  5. Place parsley leaves on each cucumber slice (fresh dill if you’re using it)
  6. Enjoy!


1Paul’s Hell Yeah Hummus

  1. 15 oz can chickpeas, boil for 5 minutes to soften, then strain and save the juice for desired thickness. (slotted spoon works great)
  2. Juice of 1 lemon, small to medium size
  3. 1/4 cup tahini
  4. 1/2 teaspoon pink salt
  5. 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  6. 1 Tablespoon avocado or extra-virgin olive oil


  1. Add the chickpea juice a little at a time until you reach your desired texture, thick vs. creamy.
  2. Enjoy warm or allow to cool!


The prep time will be longer if you’re making homemade hummus.
