Cucumber Boats

  • 2 large cucumbers (very straight)
  • 2 oz. mushrooms chopped finely
  • 1 large tomato, chopped finely
  • 2 spring onions (scallions), chopped finely
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed or chopped very finely
  • 1/4 cup plain yogurt
  • 3 oz. cheese, grated
  • Quarter the cucumbers but do not peel. Scoop out the seeds to make hollows. Discard the seeds. Simmer cucumber quarters for 7−8 minutes until slightly tender. Drain upside down on kitchen paper and cool.
  • Refrigerate until ready to fill.
  • Mix all other ingredients except cheese. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  • Then fill the 'boats' with the mixture. Cover tops of 'boats' with grated cheese and place under very hot grill/broiler until cheese is melted and bubbling slightly.
  • Serve immediately as an appetizer with hot crusty French bread.
