Here’s What To Do: It’s Easy

  • Finely slice the stuffings- avocado & capsicum (if your being sneaky, you can add carrot or cabbage too just like Live Eat Learn’s recipe)

  • Cut each cucumber in half, and hollow them out

  • Stuff the hollowed cucumbers with cooked rice- press it to one side to leave room for the veggies

  • Push the thin slices of veggies into the remaining gap in the cucumber

  • Thinly slice the cucumber

  • Ready! Serve with soy sauce if you like
