Easy Cucumber Cups
IntroductionPerfect for your next party--or turn any snack into a festive event! Perfect for your next party--or turn any snack into a festive event!
1 English (seedless) cucumber, peeled
1/2 cup peas*
1 tablespoon horseradish mustard
1/4 cup sour cream, reduced fat
1/4 cup hummus
1 sprig fresh dill, separated into 12 sections
* I used no-salt added canned peas, but you could also use thawed frozen peas.
We often turn to bread, crackers, or other whole-grain products as a vehicle to get dip from point A to point B. I like to use vegetables whenever I can. For this spicy, creamy dip, I used cucumber, but you could use any vegetable: hollowed cherry tomatoes, celery sticks, or endive leaves.
Puree the peas, mustard, and sour cream using a blender or immersion blender, or mash with a fork until smooth.
Fill each cup with 2 teaspoons of hummus, then fill to the top with the pea mixture. Garnish with a dill sprig.
One filled cup per serving.

I usually hate when some just say they are going to try something instead of actually writing a review, but when you have Q's about a recipe, there is no other place to ask. Is that a tomato slice on top and is it only 26 calories if you eat all 12? What is the serving size? I'm thinking just 2. - 5/2/12
