I decided to make my own homemade vegetable cream cheese after looking at the ingredients at the store bought veggie cream cheese. It is loaded with lots of extra ingredients and I wanted to be able to make a cleaner version for my daughter to enjoy with her homemade everything bagel. This vegetable cream cheese fit the bill! It is everything you love about the veggie cream cheese from the store only better! It makes such a difference using fresh veggies and herbs.

Variations

  • Change up the veggies! Feel free to use whatever vegetables you have on hand. Red, green, yellow, or orange bell peppers would be beautiful and delicious additions, as would any pepper, really! Just make sure to finely dice them. You could also add in diced red onion, radish, leeks or fresh garlic!
  • Spice it up with some diced jalapeños, red pepper flakes, or cayenne pepper!
  • Love everything bagels? Add some everything bagel seasoning in place of the onion powder and garlic powder, then stir in the mixed veggies. Best of both worlds!
