Roald Dahl was one of the leading authors of my childhood, reading every single book he had written to myself. His work enchanted me with his exciting storylines and loveable characters, such as Matilda, Willy Wonka and of course The BFG. Dahl’s stories are nostalgic for me and many, but even so, they can be enjoyed by any age group.
I was delighted to see the re-make of The BFG. This family classic resurrected itself for this new generation of families to have their heart warmed by, which consequently inspired me to create a Vegan Snozzcumber recipe.
A Snozzcumber is a cucumber-like vegetable with lumpy, warty skin. Our compassionate giant refuses to eat “human beans” and is instead is left nothing but his vegetarian diet of snozzcumbers that taste like rotten fish and frogskin. However, I have created a much tastier snozzcumber for you guys, and of course have kept to our friendly giants ethical roots and made it vegan!!
The snozzcumber recipe is a great way to make food fun for kids, while also getting lots of nutrition down them with our mock tuna recipe that fills the interior of hollowed cucumbers. Yet, that doesn’t mean the adults can’t have fun with these snozzcumbers too.
My recipe is an adapted version of Roald Dahl’s Revolting Recipes Snozzcumber recipe, which unfortunately is filled with fish.
- 3 cucumbers, skinned
- Vegan mock tuna
- Gherkins or other pickles, optional
- Sprinkling of dill
- First prep the Vegan mock tuna and set aside to refrigerate.
- Next, take your skinned cucumbers, half them, and hollow out the core with a corer or end of a veg peeler, leaving a large hole for you filling. Make sure you keep one end of the cucumber closed.
- Fill the holes with your mock tuna, sprinkle some dill on top and garnish with gherkins. Or get creative with your toppings!
