Spooky Raw Cucumber Coffins

Happy Halloween! We’re a bit behind the eight ball this year – today being the 31st of October and everything! However, we did publish our Inferno Cookies a few weeks ago, which would also be perfect Halloween treats! But these Spooky Raw Cucumber Coffins really take the cake, or should I say, cucumber, hahaha.

They are ridiculously easy to make – they are raw, nut free, gluten free, oil free!!

Spooky Raw Cucumber Coffins

I’m surprised at how good blueberries taste with cucumber and beetroot dip! Try it out and if you love it let us know in the comments! If you don’t have any fresh blueberries, you could substitute with sultanas or peas would also work well.

These Spooky Raw Cucumber Coffins will not make you feel full and heavy – you’ll feel so light and airy, but satisfied. The best part is, you don’t even have to wait till next Halloween to make or eat them! These are a great raw snack any time of the year! If you love raw food, try out our Kelp Noodle Salad or our Activated Almond Milk Turmeric Smoothie!

The beetroot mixture in this one tends to loose its colour very quickly, so if you aren’t eating these straight away, or your putting them in the fridge to take to a party later, then add some lemon or lime juice into it when blending to help retain the colour.

Please share this recipe with your friends! Everybody loves a deliciously Spooky Raw Cucumber Coffin!!

Course: Appetizer
Servings: 4 coffins
Ingredients
  • 2 medium lebanese cucumbers cut in half lengthways
  • 1/2 medium beetroot peeled and grated (about 1/2 a cup)
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1 tsp fresh ginger grated
  • Generous sprinkle of cumin powder
  • 1 Tbsp fresh mint finely chopped
  • 8 blueberries
  • 6 or 7 sprigs of pea sprouts cut into one inch pieces
Instructions
  1. Scoop the inside of the cucumber out with a teaspoon so you have a hollow coffin. Save the scooped out mixture.

  2. Add the grated beetroot, sunflower seeds, ginger, cumin powder, mint and the scooped out cucumber mixture into a food process and blend until well incorporated. Then put this mixture into the coffins, evenly dividing it between each one.

  3. Place the blueberries at one end, to make eyes, and then criss cross the pea sprouts over the beetroot mix to make a mummy like effect. 

  4. Take to a Halloween party and impress your friends!!

      Yeahhh!!! You know what? The blueberries go really really well with the beetroot filling. You might want to cover the whole thing in blueberries. Thanks Nicole, let us know how they go!
