I got the idea to make this Veggie Bagel Sandwich after a trip to the farmers market with my sister last spring. Not quite eating vegan yet at the time but consciously trying to eat more vegetables I ordered the veggie bagel when we hit the bagel stand. I remember eating it wondering why I had never thought to load up my bagels at home with fresh veggies. It was bursting with flavour, so fresh and crisp.

Sitting across from my sister in the busy farmers market food hall I vowed to re-create a fresh cream cheese and veggie loaded bagel of my own at home. I’ve easily made this vegan combination over 50 times since.

Bagel layered with vegan cream cheese, avocado, cucumber, red pepper, red onion and alfalfa sprouts.

    This was absolutely delicious! I didn’t have any vegan cream cheese around, so I used hummus, but I will try it with the cream cheese next time. I used cucumbers, tomatoes, avocado, and sprouts. I really liked the addition of the sprouts.
