Sandwich with Spiced Red Pepper Puree, Cucumbers and Greens Recipe

Sandwich with Spiced Red Pepper Puree, Cucumbers and Greens Recipes

Ingredients :

2 large red bell peppers

1 tbsp finely minced garlic

2-3 finely minced jalapeno peppers

2 tsp ground toasted cumin seed

3 tbsp lemon juice

salt, pepper

1/2 cup nonfat plain yogurt

1 tsp grated lemon zest

3 tbsp chopped mint

1 large cucumber, sliced 1/8 inch thick, peeled and seeded if necessary (English cucumbers won't need peeling)

4 large pita breads, or 8 slices whole-grain bread

2 bunches of watercress, stems removed

16 mint leaves

Method :

Roast the peppers in the broiler, over a grill, or directly on a gas flame. Turn them often until well charred on all sides. Put them in a plastic container to steam for about 15 minutes. Peel, seed, and chop coarsely. Place the peppers, garlic, jalapeno peppers, cumin, and lemon juice in the container of a food processor. Pulse quickly to chop and blend. Season with salt and pepper. Season the yogurt with lemon zest, mint, salt and pepper.

Assemble the sandwiches. If using pita breads, cut them in half. Open the pocket and spread the minted yogurt on one side. Top with cucumber slices. Put the pepper puree over the cucumbers and tuck the watercress and mint leaves over the pepper puree. If using sliced bread, spread yogurt on half the bread and top that side with cucumbers. Put the pepper puree on the other side and top with watercress and mint. Cover with a second slice of bread and cut in half.

Serves 4

In Greece and Turkey spicy roasted red pepper purees are often served at the start of a meal, accompanied by pita bread. Why not add some sliced cucumbers, greens, and a little minted yogurt for a tasty Middle Eastern sandwich?
