These Vegan Cucumber Rolls are sure to make you fall in love with plant-based 🌿 roll-ups! They can be made for breakfast or a snack or can be made to have alongside a more filling breakfast or lunch, depending on your lifestyle. I know my video of the other roll-ups went viral, and you all loved it, but this version is for my beautiful humans who need to switch things up, cannot tolerate dairy, or are living a vegan lifestyle.
Why You’ll Love Vegan Cucumber Rolls
These vegan cucumber rolls are so versatile and can be made with any veggies you like. You can even drizzle them with vegan spicy mayo, cream cheese, tzatziki, ranch, or anything your heart desires to make them according to taste. I love having these as a midday snack, but they are so fun for kids’ (or adult!) lunches too. The crunch from the 🥒 cucumber, combined with the sweetness of the caramelized veggies is to die for. Also, for added protein you could include some marinated and cooked tofu. Alternatively, if you’re not vegan, you can definitely add a protein such as fish or chicken.
How to Prepare Vegan Cucumber Rolls
🔪 Peel the top of the cucumber until it is even, and start to make strips with a Y-peeler or a potato peeler. Spread out the strips on a paper towel, as cucumbers have a lot of water content.
🥒 Arrange the cucumber strips in a row making sure they overlap each other slightly. Pat them down with a paper towel, removing any excess moisture.
🫑 Add desired fillings such as hummus, raw bell peppers, sautéed mushrooms, and sautéed onions. Feel free to season the veggies with salt and pepper if you’d like!
🌀 Gently roll it up and cut into bite-size pieces. You can also secure it with toothpicks for ease and make cuts between each toothpick. Enjoy!
I sautéed my onion and mushroom in a touch of avocado oil spray. If you don’t like mushrooms, then leave them out.
Vegan Cucumber Rolls Variations and Substitutions

I sautéed my onions and mushrooms in a touch of avocado oil spray. If you don’t like mushrooms, then leave them out.
These should be eaten the same day they are made. You could make them in the morning and eat them for lunch, but I would not store them overnight as they will have a more soggy texture the next day.
