Nutritional values

Admittedly, the peanut filling is not directly suitable for dieting, but it does taste sensational and, in addition to magnesium and B vitamins, provides protein. Vegetarians in particular benefit from this: after all, 100 grams of peanut kernels have more protein than a small steak!

If you serve crispy wholemeal baguettes with the filled cucumber cups, the finger food becomes a small main meal that keeps you full even better and longer thanks to the particularly rich dietary fibres.
