When you are planning a party, one of the first things that you have to think about is the appetizers. These can often seem like an unimportant feature of a party, but they are something that guests love, and a great way to really take your party to the next level.
There are lots of different types of appetizers to choose from, so it is very important that you choose the right ones for your event.
One very popular appetizer is kale, hummus, and cucumber bites. These are an excellent option if you have guests who enjoy eating healthily. They are also great if you have a large meal planned, and want to ensure that your guests will still enjoy it, even after they have picked at the appetizers.
But, finding the best recipe for these yummy treats isn’t always easy. There are quite a few options to choose from, and even more innovative recipes that have built upon this base recipe.
In this handy guide, we’ve compiled a list of some of the best kale hummus cucumber recipes, and some of the greatest recipes that have built upon this traditional idea. So, let’s dive right in.
Let’s start this list off with a classic kale hummus and cucumber bites recipe. This one can be found on MasterCook, and it has a list of wonderful ingredients that are guaranteed to make these bites really yummy.
With an outstanding mixture of kale, garbanzo beans, olive oil, garlic, and limes all mixed together, this recipe makes a very yummy paste which can then be used to fill the cucumber rounds.
With every bite of this delectable treat, you can tell how healthy it is. But, just because it’s healthy, this doesn’t mean that these bites aren’t delicious.
They are light, refreshing, and the perfect treat to have before a bigger meal. So, if you are searching for the perfect kale hummus cucumber bites recipe, this is the one for you.
Other than the first recipe that we looked at, it is actually very tricky to find an appetizer that contains kale, hummus, and cucumber all at once.
Due to this, the next few recipes that we will look at will need a little modification. This recipe doesn’t contain any hummus, but you can easily make it contain hummus by simply adding it to the recipe.
In situations like this, it is best to add additional ingredients by taste, so follow the recipe that is outlined and then prepare your hummus. With the filling for your cups prepared, you should then begin to add your hummus, add a little to start and then continue to add until you find the flavor is right for you.
Once you have achieved this, simply add the filling to the cucumber rounds, and enjoy.
The last recipe that we looked at didn’t include any hummus, this one is different because it doesn’t contain any kale. Thankfully, adding kale to your recipe is a lot easier than adding hummus, so it is very easy to modify this recipe to suit your wishes.
For this recipe, we would recommend adding an extra 2 cups of chopped kale to the mixture. By ‘mixture’, we mean the hummus. So stir the kale into the hummus before filling the cucumber rounds with it.
You should then continue to follow the recipe as normal, so you will end up with a super yummy treat that is really healthy, and contains both cucumber, hummus, and kale. Modifying recipes can seem intimidating at first, but it is actually pretty easy to do.
This next recipe is insanely simple, and that is why it is so easy to modify to contain whatever ingredients that you want. If you check out the ingredients list for this recipe, you will see that it contains just two ingredients: hummus and cucumber. So, if you want to add kale, this is really easy.
The great thing about modifying a recipe is that you can really make it your own. If you really love kale, then you might choose to add an equal amount of kale as hummus to your cucumber rounds.
Alternatively, you could add half a cup of kale to your hummus. Simply stir these two ingredients together to form a paste, then add as much as you want to your cucumber rounds. Then all that’s left to do is eat them.
This next recipe is a little different as it contains both sweet and savory ingredients to form a yummy appetizer. Again, this recipe does not contain kale, but it does contain orange. The use of orange in this recipe might seem a little strange, in which case you might want to swap it out for kale.
Alternatively, if you like the idea of orange and kale hummus cucumber appetizers, then you can simply add kale to the existing recipe. If you are planning on using a modified recipe for your dinner party, then it is best to try making them first.
When you are modifying recipes, there is often a lot of trial and error until you find the recipe that is perfect for you. So, this is definitely another great base recipe to try.
If you have very little interest in modifying a recipe, and simply want one that already contains everything that you want to have in your appetizer, then this is the one for you.
This kale and hummus cucumber bites recipe is straightforward to follow, and produces insanely yummy treats which are guaranteed to be a success with your guests.

So, if you are looking for a simple kale and hummus cucumber bites recipe, this could be the perfect option for you.
Another brilliant recipe to consider is this ‘roasted red pepper hummus cucumber bites’ recipe by Chocolateslopes.
This recipe is very straightforward to follow, and it doesn’t contain too many ingredients, so it can be easily modified to contain kale too.
Just as with the other recipes that we looked at earlier, simply add the kale to the hummus and stir it in thoroughly before adding the mixture to the cucumber rounds.
You can then continue to follow the recipe as outlined. Once finished, simply store these bites in the refrigerator until you are ready to serve them.
Finally, let’s wrap this list up with this ‘vegan cucumber hummus bites’ recipe by drivemehungry. As has been the case with most of the recipes that we have spoken about in this list, it does not include kale.
