Forget carrot sticks...the delicate pea puree in these frightful cucumber cauldrons will stir up excitement.


2 large (15-inch) seedless cucumbers, trimmed and cut into 2-inch-thick rounds½ 12-ounce bag frozen peas, thawed1 small garlic clove2 Tbsp tahini paste1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice½ tsp ground cumin¼ tsp salt16 pretzel sticks or short rods


  1. Scoop out insides of the cucumber rounds (reserving the flesh) using a small spoon, leaving a 1/4-inch base in each bottom to create a cup.
  2. Puree cucumber flesh, peas, garlic, lemon juice, cumin and salt until almost smooth.
  3. Divide mixture among cucumber rounds and add a pretzel stick (you may have some puree left over).
