Tea sandwiches - what a silly, yet fun, lunch idea! Most of our sandwiches made at home consist of peanut butter, jelly, or hummus spread on bread so making these dainty tea sandwiches was a fun change of pace. Not only did the different ingredients make them good, but taking the time to make each one made them all the more special.
Aura chose this weeks recipe for the food matters project and all of Bittman's combinations looked tasty so we decided to try one of his and make one of our own. We picked some shelling peas at our CSA this past weekend and followed Bittman's recipe for gingered pea spread (peas, ginger, garlic, mint, oil). We also combined some feta cheese, yogurt, and dill for another spread. We layered these spreads with cucumbers and a multigrain bread cut into small pieces.
We had lots of fun with this recipe will certainly be incorporating more tea sandwiches (though perhaps not cut into tiny pieces) into our lunch rotation.
