Sofia’s Tea Sandwiches & Lettuce Wraps
- 8 slices bread, whole grain
- 16 lettuce cups, small
- 2 carrots, julienne
- 1 english cucumber, julienne and thin slices
- 4 cups non-fat plain greek yogurt
- 1 small red pepper, chopped
- 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
- 2 tbsp fresh chives, chopped
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
For the homemade red pepper yogurt cheese, combine 2 cups of yogurt, red pepper, 1 clove garlic, 1/4 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper in a food processor. Blend until smooth.
Place a metal strainer lined with cheesecloth or paper coffee filter over a bowl.
Pour the red pepper cheese mixture into the strainer, cover and let sit overnight in the refrigerator.
For the homemade chive yogurt cheese, in a bowl combine 2 cups of yogurt, chives, 2 cloves of garlic, 1/4 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp pepper and mix.
Pour the chive cheese mixture into a second strainer lined with cheesecloth, cover and let sit overnight in the refrigerator.
For tea sandwiches, spread a thin layer of the red pepper yogurt cheese on both slices of whole grain bread.
On one slice, cover with thinly sliced cucumbers.
Place the second slice on top, remove the crusts and cut diagonally to make four small tea sandwiches.
For some gluten free lettuce cups, use the inner leaves of a butter lettuce and fill each cup with a spoonful of the chive yogurt cheese.
Top with julienne carrots and cucumbers. Enjoy!
