Veg Cream Cheese

I debate even posting this "recipe". But it is so so good. If you are lucky enough to live in Utah and have had the opportunity to visit Rich's Bagels in Salt Lake you have had the chance to taste the BEST veg cream cheese ever! If you visit Salt Lake make sure you go there and try their veg cream cheese on an Asiago Cheese die for! However, I no longer live in Salt Lake, so I have to make my own veggie cream cheese. Yes, I know you can buy it in the grocery store, but let's be honest the veggies are really just specks of flavor. I want veggies in my cream cheese, not specks. So I came up with this Super Simple recipe for homemade veg cream cheese. Feel free to add other veggies and try experimenting with different herbs or season salts. Get a great bagel (I like the everything bagels from Costco) add some cucumbers, freshly ground pepper, and you have yourself a great sandwich.

this looks awesome! So, having a baby has kept me away from this site for a while. I just can't face the grocery store with three. I can only make it to costco for the samples and you can't really cook after going to costco. But, I'm back and super excited that there are so many great new recipes to try!
