Vegan Cream Cheese

Once upon a time going dairy-free meant you’d need to give up cream cheese. But today there are a number of terrific and widely-available vegan brands. These products are so realistic that, in terms of taste and texture, they’re indistinguishable from dairy-based cream cheeses.

So if you think no bagel is complete without a schmear of cream cheese, you’re in luck. Vegan cream cheese is sold at natural foods stores everywhere, right where they keep the dairy-based brands that you no longer want.

Serving Suggestions

Dairy-free cream cheese is magnificent on bagels, on whole grain bread with sprouts, and on raisin bread. It’s also delicious on whole grain crackers. When served as part of a sandwich, try adding a little of  Indian-style pickle.
