Grain-free Paleo Tea Sandwiches made from cutouts of cassava coconut tortillas, for delicious petite tea sandwiches.
Tea sandwiches can be made out of anything you like on a sandwich, only a ‘two-finger’ pickup size.
My British hubby tells me that a sandwich is not a sandwich without butter and on white bread. I say ‘hog wash’!
Tea Time is a very dedicated time to catch your breath from the day, meet up with a friend, inspire Children’s Tea and eat lots of little ‘two finger’ bites.
Paleo Tea Sandwich
Meeting a variety of dietary requirements have become so easy to tweak ingredients to have something special for everyone.
Biscuit Tea Sandwiches are made with wheat flour and have often been the tea sandwich I have made. Then I discovered tortillas made out of cassava and coconut and a variety of other grain-free ingredients. What a game changer!
Once you have prepared the tortillas, you can spread and stack these cuties with whatever you desire. I am loving the many cashew cheese and almond milk spreads, for a dairy free addition to the tea sandwiches.
Hummus – Traditional Hummus Pumpkin Hummus With Chili Oil or Beet Hummus -or salsa is a colorful and flavor charged choice for these tea sandwiches.
While I chose smoked salmon and radishes for this tea party, thinly sliced pieces of meats or veggies would look and taste yummy as well.
Paleo Dessert Tea Sandwich
A cookie-like dessert can be made from the tortillas for a little extra treat. A fast, grain-free cookie you didn’t have to make, and simply splatter a little chocolate on top with orange zest!

PALEO TEA SANDWICHESCourse: AppetizersCuisine: FusionDifficulty: Easy
Grain-free Tea sandwiches are possible when Cassava Coconut Tortillas are used. Cutouts with a cookie cutter make them the perfect whimsical size.
Cassava Coconut Tortilla – 2, with 8 little cut outs per tortilla
Almond Milk Cheese Spread and/or Chia Cheeze Spread – ¼ cup, I use Kite Hill and Heidi Ho
Radishes – 2, thinly sliced
Smoked Salmon – 2 ounces, or more
Pea Shoot, Dill or Micro Greens – 8 small pieces
- Once the tortillas are cut into 16 little rounds, warm them on a medium pan for about 20 seconds on each side. It brings out their flavor.
- Spread a thin layer of your chosen spread on each piece of tortilla. Place the radish, salmon, pea shoots or micro green and top it off with the top tortilla piece.
I LOVE a good tea sandwich!!
