​Healthy Cucumber Rollups Recipe Is Detox Friendly, Gluten-free & Dairy-free (and Delicious)

The holiday season is traditionally a time for celebration, family gatherings and indulging in delicious feasts. However, it's also a period when many people tend to overindulge in unhealthy foods and drinks, leaving them feeling sluggish and less than their best.

My detox philosophy and recipes provide a structured and comprehensive approach to detoxifying the body and mind, allowing us to enjoy the holidays without compromising our health. The program and recipes in my book, Dirty Girl: Ditch the Toxins, Look Great and Feel Freaking Amazing, are designed to promote increased energy levels, mental clarity and a sense of rejuvenation.

This cucumber rollups recipe from my book makes a great holiday appetizer, gameday snack or healthy side dish any time of the year. The recipe is detox friendly, egg-free, gluten-free, grain-free, low in sugar, vegan and dairy-free. What more could you ask for?

Recipe Notes

  • You could add some organic sliced tofu or slices of meat (your choice!).
  • Store the cucumber rollups in an airtight container in the refrigerator. 

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Start by using a mandolin or vegetable peeler to slice long-wise, a long strip of cucumber about 1/4-inch thick and lay flat on a plate or tray. Do this with all of the cucumbers, leaving the hard/thick skin ends out. Once you have all the cucumber strips, pat them on both sides with a paper towel to drain excess moisture.
  2. On top of each cucumber strip, lay out the mashed avocado or guacamole in a thin layer as the base. Now start laying the other toppings in an even layer over the avocado, leaving the protein for last.
  3. Once the layers are done, start slowly rolling the cucumber up with the filling and place a toothpick in the entire roll up to hold it together.
  4. Place on a plate with your dipping sauce of choice on the side and enjoy!
