Veggie Cream Cheese

Veggie Cream Cheese

Veggie cream cheese is a simple and versatile recipe. It is a fun and tasty way to use whatever the harvest is that week, and the flavors can easily change with the seasons and be customized to your preference. It can be spread on your favorite bagel or slice of bread (top with a slice of fresh tomato!), used on crackers, or even paired with fresh vegetables as a dip.
