- Recipe: The Nutty Sourdough Surprise
- – 1 cup hazelnuts, roasted and chopped
- – 4 slices of sourdough bread
- – 1 large cucumber, thinly sliced
- For the Sauce:
- – ½ cup Greek yogurt
- – 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- – Zest of one lemon
- – A pinch of salt and black pepper
- 1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Spread the hazelnuts evenly on a baking sheet and roast for about 10 minutes or until fragrant. Let them cool completely before chopping roughly.
- 2. Prepare the sauce by whisking together Greek yogurt, lemon juice, lemon zest, salt, and black pepper in a bowl. Set aside.
- 3. Toast the sourdough bread slices until golden brown and crispy.
- 4. Take one slice of toasted sourdough bread as your base layer; spread a generous amount of the prepared sauce over it.
- 5. Layer some cucumber slices over the sauced bread—don’t be shy with those refreshing greens!
- 6. Sprinkle a handful of roasted hazelnuts on top of the cucumbers; this adds an unexpectedly delightful crunch that will make you go nuts for this dish!
- 7. Repeat steps four through six until you have three layers in total (or more if feeling adventurous), ending with a final layer of sauce on top.
- 8. To add an extra touch: Garnish with a sprinkle of crushed hazelnuts atop each stack or even draw cute little faces using cucumber skin pieces to create smiling characters—it’s all about embracing whimsy!
- 9. Serve immediately while enjoying both the nuttiness from the hazelnuts and tanginess from our beloved cucumbers within every bite! This playful combination will leave you pleasantly surprised.
