cucumber sandwich recipe
trying out health tips, like eating fruits and veggies only for a day,
i have decided to instead, have a vegetarian diet once a week.
Feels fine, light and easy to prepare and lighter , easier for the tummy.
very simple ingredients
1 medium size cucumber
14 pieces sandwich bread slices
7 tbsp finely minced fresh mint leaves... love this
Some nutmeg powder, salt, pepper and paprika
Unsalted butter for spread
Hazelnut butter / peanut butter for spread- if you are a health freak, use the organic variety
the cool way to prepare
Mix butter with mint leaves, nutmeg powder, salt, pepper and paprika.
Slice cucumber slightly thicker than thin for a crunchy taste and dab with paper towels to dry.. or sandwich between two paper towels.
Slice off bread crust for a cool look
Spread butter mix on 7 pieces of bread for base of sandwich.
Arrange cucumber slices on bread
Spread hazelnut butter for remaining 7 pieces of bread and place on cucumber, as sandwich top
THE COOL LOOK
Using a sharp knife, cut each sandwich into four making squares, for a cool look
Arrange sandwiches at random on a white plate for an even cooler look
Ensure your thumb and middle finger handles this delicately and enjoy the cooling effect of cucumber and mint…..
you never know how delicious and crunchy this healthy treat is…JUST FANTASTIC FOR A LIGHT VEGETARIAN MEAL
DO YOU KNOW THAT THERE IS A CUCUMBER SANDWICH CALLED THE BUCKINGHAM PALACE? yes, but i cant remember the ingredients.
