Stuffed Dates

This recipe courtesy of The Sexy Vegan's Happy Hour at Home by Brian Patton


  • 12 medjool dates
  • 1 English cucumber, peeled
  • 12 whole roasted unsalted almonds
  • Smoked sea salt or regular sea salt (optional)


  1. With a paring knife, make a lengthwise slit in eat date, being sure not to cut all the way through.  If the dates have pits, remove and discard them.
  2. With a vegetable peeler, shave a long flat ribbon from the cucumber. Rotate the cucumber and then shave another ribbon. Repeat shaving and rotating the cucumber until you have 12 ribbons, each about 3 t0 4 inches long.
  3. Wrap/roll each ribbon around 1 almond. Stuff each cucumber-wrapped almond into a date.
  4. If desired, sprinkle the stuffed dates with smoked sea salt, if you have it, or regular sea salt.
  5. Serve.
