Hummus Tea Sandwiches

Hummus Tea Sandwiches

Serves 6

Tea sandwiches are often known for their thinly sliced bread, fresh herbs and delicious creamy spread, in this case a homemade hummus flavored with fresh lemon juice and tahini. Arrange small leaves of delicate butter lettuce on top of the hummus before assembling the sandwiches, if you like.

  • 1 1/2 cups cooked chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons tahini (sesame paste)
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 2 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped parsley
  • 12 slices thinly sliced sandwich bread

Put chickpeas, lemon juice, tahini, soy sauce, cumin, coriander, garlic, and 1/4 cup water into a food processor and puree until smooth. Transfer to a bowl, cover, and refrigerate. Before serving, let hummus come to room temperature, then stir in parsley.

Divide hummus between 6 slices of bread and spread out evenly with a knife. Top with remaining slices of bread and press each sandwich down lightly. Using a large cookie cutter (any shape you'd like), cut out the sandwiches and transfer to a platter. Cut the remaining part of each sandwich into geometric
shapes and transfer to the platter, if you like.
Serve immediately, or cover platter with a slightly dampened paper towel and plastic wrap, then refrigerate until ready to serve.
