Cream Cheese & Cucumber Sandwiches Vegan-style

More tea, Vicar? Get poshed up with our traditional summer sarnies vegan style - possibly served with our Strawberry Sponge Cake

Top Tip. We've suggested Tofutti Cream Cheese, available from good health food shops. Tesco and Sheese also make soft cheeses that work well. You can also make your own easily and cheaply with our simple recipe for Vegan Cream Cheese

Picture courtesy of Adrian Loves Owls - she uses cookie cutters for an alternative to the traditional triangular sarnies! 

 

Ingredients: 

  • 1 tub Tofutti or other vegan cream cheese
  • Wholemeal rolls or brown/wholemeal bread, 1-2 per person
  • Thinly sliced cucumber, 4 slices per roll

Method: 

1. Slice open rolls if using. Spread cheese thickly over rolls or bread then add sliced cucumber. Remove crusts from bread if using.

2. If using rolls, cut them into halves or quarters. If using bread, cut the sandwiches into small triangles - or use cookie cutters for alternative shapes. Serve on a pretty plate. Doilies are good too.

Why not add a sprinkling of freshly snipped cress (mustard and cress sold in the veg aisle of most supermarkets ) to add a little heat ? Yummy...

Good idea! We love cress - it's also good in our Tofu Egg Mayo sandwich filling recipe.
