Bagel stores used to be everywhere. They are still around, just a little harder to come by. The good news is that you can transform even the most mediocre bagel into deliciousness with this homemade veggie cream cheese! Since it's so flavorful, it stands up nicely to the heartiness of whole wheat bagels, which is how we serve it up in our classes. We recommend warming or toasting the bagels first if they are not fresh.
