Cucumber Sandwiches

If you’ve ever seen The Importance of Being Earnest (or any other Victorian English thing), then you must know that cucumber sandwiches are a must at tea time. And even if you’ve never heard or practiced tea time, these cute, easy little sandwiches are a great appetizer and will impress any guest at any party (unless, of course, you eat them all before hand because they’re just so tempting!)


bread slices (your choice)

Tofutti Better Than Cream Cheese

1 to 2 seedless English cucumbers


1. Slice loaf of bread into sandwich-thick slices.

2. Shave long strips of cucumber with a vegetable peeler or a sharp knife. Pat them with a paper towel if they seem too wet.

3. Spread your favorite sandwich bread with some Tofutti Better Than Cream Cheese (I used spelt bread as well as gluten-free and vegan Champion Sandwich Bread)

4. Lay out cucumber in a pretty pattern, slightly overlapping. You can use long strips or short ones–whatever you want.

5. Depending on the bread you’re using, cut off the crusts and cut to desired shape. Use a cookie or biscuit cutter for non-square/triangular sandwiches. Sprinke with kosher salt and fresh pepper if you want. You could also garnish with parsley, mint, or watercress. (I didn’t add anything to mine: just cucumber, tofutti, and bread.)
