White Bean & Sun Dried Tomato Cuke Cuties {Vegan, Gluten-Free}

In just a few minutes you can whip up this healthy and cute appetizer filled with lemony bean dip and sweet sun dried tomatoes.

I invented this recipe while in search of a healthy holiday appetizer to bring alongside the bread and cream cheese and candy that graced our parties.


I whipped up a lemony bean dip, a sweet sun-dried tomato topping, and carved out my cucumber rounds to bring to my grandmas. But with all the bread and cream cheese and candy, I forgot the cucumbers!! So in lieu of bite sized cuke cuties, I flopped the bean dip in a bowl, topped it with the tomatoes and served it alongside crackers and the veggie tray. It was still a big hit and I was happy to have something light to munch on.


You can prepare all of the ingredients for this recipe in just a couple minutes and store them to serve later.

In just a few minutes you can whip up this healthy and cute appetizer filled with lemony bean dip and sweet sun dried tomatoes.


Ingredients

1 Seedless English Cucumber


Bean Dip

1 can (15 oz) Cannellini Beans, drained and rinsed

2 Tablespoons Oil from Sun-Dried Tomatoes packed in oil

1/4 teaspoon Lemon Zest

1 teaspoon Lemon Juice

1/4 teaspoon Salt

Cracked Black Pepper


Sun Dried Tomato Topping

6-8 Sun Dried Tomatoes packed in oil

1/2 teaspoon Lemon Juice

1/8 teaspoon Salt

1 Tablespoon chopped Parsley



Instructions

Cut 3/4" slices of cucumber and then using a spoon lightly hollow out a small indentation in the middle of each slice. Gently sop up any excess water on the slices with a paper towel.


In a food processor combine the bean dip ingredients and pulse until combined but still a bit rustic and chunky. Scrape down the sides occasionally.


Roughly chop the tomatoes and combine in a small bowl with the remaining ingredients.


Serve by spooning the bean dip into cucumber rounds and topping with the tomato mixture.


Notes

If making ahead of time, store the components separately and assemble right before serving.
