Cucumber Boats with Labneh and Dukkah

© 2022 |

Sprinkling with freshly homemade dukkah really takes some simple baby cucumber boats with labneh up a few notches. They are quick to make, crunchy and keto-friendly - great for when you’re in the mood for a healthy snack, or entertaining.

  • 300 g Baby cucumbers, halved
  • 250 g Labneh
  • 1 Lime, juiced
  • 1 clove Garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp Dill, chopped
  • Salt and pepper
  • 35 g Sesame seeds
  • 120 Nuts of your choice, toasted (I used a mixture of walnuts and Brazil nuts)
  • 2 tsp Coriander powder
  • 3 tsp Cumin powder
  • /2 tsp Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp Sea salt
  1. To make dukkah, scatter sesame seeds in a small non-stick skillet over medium heat. Cook, shaking the skillet often, for 3-5 minutes or until lightly toasted and aromatic. Add coriander, cumin and black pepper. Cook, shaking the pan a further 1minute. Turn off the heat and transfer to a bowl. Finely chop the toasted nuts and add to the sesame seed-spice mixture together with the salt. Stir to combine then set aside to cool.
  2. Cut each baby cucumber in half lengthwise.
  3. Combine labneh, lime juice, minced garlic, and chopped dill together. Taste and season with salt and pepper.
  4. Spread the labneh dip generously over the cut side of each baby cucumber. Sprinkle the dukkah over the labneh and scatter extra chopped dill over if desired. Enjoy!

I totally forgot what labneh is although I remember you told us. Little yellow cherry potatoes look so gorgeous.

I need to try this. I eat cucumbers just about every day and am always looking for a new way to have them.

Hi Angie, I bookmarked this recipe. I just started to make my own yoghurt and making labneh will be a nice addition. This is a wonderful, light recipe. It would make a nice appetizer on Thanksgiving. Bernadette,

Angie, Your cucumber boats with with Labneh and Dukkah are very appealing. I would have to peel off the skin of the cucumbers first though...a medication issue. Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

What a wonderful way to eat Labneh, which I love. Nuts could be optional, as I am being very careful with nuts now. Perfect for our Summer.

Javier 10/11/22 12:24

Cucumber boats - I like the concept :) homemade dukkah sounds like such a treat.

Those baby cucumbers are so cute. As you know I'm a big fan of dukkah and this is such a good way to use it.
