Sautéed Cucumber – There's a First Time For Everything!

Carole's Chatter: Sautéed Cucumber – There's a First Time For Everything!

I got this idea from Love Your Leftovers – a River Cottage cookbook.  It turned out ok but a bit weird – I still think of cucumber as a raw salad veg.


Chopped herbs (I substituted a few chopped spinach leaves)
1-2 tablespoons of crème fraiche
Salt and pepper


Peel the cucumber

Halve it lengthwise and scope out the seeds with a teaspoon

Cut into chunks (say 1/3 of an inch wide)

Heat a little oil with a generous knob of butter until it is frothing.

Fry the cucumber (sprinkled with a little salt) for 5 minutes of so until a little golden.

Add the chopped spinach and the crème fraiche.  Stir together and season well with salt and pepper.

  1. I'll have to keep this on the back burner for when my cucumber plant gives us more!
