Photo above: Cucumber bites

Below are ingredients, books and kitchen tools that can be used in this recipe and ordered from


5 hardboiled eggs, chopped

To hard boil eggs, place them in a pot and pour cold water over them until they are covered. Set pot on stove and turn up heat to high. When the water starts to boil, turn down heat to medium and put timer on for 18 minutes. When done take eggs out of boiling water and run under cold water until cool. Peel off shells and chop into small pieces.

1/2 cup sour cream - store bought or homemade

1 Tablespoon Dijon mustard

1 Tablespoon white wine vinegar

Sea salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

1 cucumber, sliced

Mix the mustard, vinegar salt and pepper into the chopped eggs and top the cucumber sliced with the mixture. Place on a serving dish.

Try serving these cucumber bites with a glass of kombucha.

Note: I always encourage everyone to use as much local, grown without chemicals ingredients (organic), and meat, eggs and dairy from animals that were/are free-ranging and were/are raised without hormones and antibiotics. Seafood should be wild from unpolluted waters.
