Yesterday I came home to a wonderful surprise GalaxyFoods sent me a sample of their new vegan cream cheese. As soon as i saw it I knew that we would be having bagels for dinner. However these were not going to be your average bagels with cream cheese these were going to be taken up a notch and be bagels with (no)lox.
I am ridiculously proud of my creation and how much it really looks like a bagel with lox. I used super thinly sliced tomato and onions (done on the mandolin), vegan cream cheese, and capers.
A few tips on how to make these really tasty is to
1. Cut the bagel in thirds This allows you to still have that yummy bagel but also place the toppings on and now have them all fall off when you eat them. It just makes things a little more eye appealing as well.
2. Soak your red onions. If you are a raw onion or red onion hater soaking the thinly sliced red onion in cold water for 10 minutes is helpful in reducing the sharp flavor. The Hubz is not an onion lover especially raw and he didn’t mind them this way.
What is your favorite bagel topping?
