Cucumber Tea Sandwiches

Cooling cucumber makes the perfect tea sandwich filling.

If you're preparing these two-bite treats ahead of time, store in the refrigerator covered with wax paper and a damp paper towel to prevent the bread from drying out.

Serves 8

What You Need:

  • 8 ounces vegan cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon minced chives
  • 1 tablespoon minced tarragon
  • Salt and fresh cracked pepper, to taste
  • 1 loaf organic white spelt bread
  • 1 large cucumber, peeled and sliced
  • 2 teaspoons Maldon sea salt

What You Do:

  1. In a small bowl, mix cream cheese, chives, tarragon, and salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.
  2. To make one sandwich, cut crusts off two slices of bread. Spread with a layer of cream cheese mixture, and arrange a layer of cucumber on one slice of bread. Sprinkle Maldon salt over cucumber slices and top with the other piece of bread. Cut in half on a diagonal, and then cut each piece in half again, forming 4 small triangles. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
