Low Fat Vegetable Creamcheese spread. Not just for Breakfast.
When I recently purchased vegetable cream cheese spread, I realized how salty it tasted and that it had almost double the sodium than regular cream cheese. That led me to make my own, which I truthfully liked better. It takes only minutes.
2 tablespoons Minced Celery
1 tablespoon grated carrot
1 tablespoon minced red pepper.
1 clove garlic grated. ( if you like onion i would use 1 tsp grated) or omit if you don't want vampire potion breath.
1/2 brick of Neufchâtel ( aka low fat Cream cheese) I like the low fat NOT the Fat free which , to me is like while flavorless jello. Yucko ***
Mix together and use to top bagels, toast, pita..even fill celery stalks for a snack or serve as cracker spread.
If you want heat, you can mix in some hot sauce or Tabasco.
***I buy the low fat cream cheese at Aldi supermarket if the store doesn't have it on sale. It is wrapped in the same foil as Philadelphia Cream Cheese. Hmmm interesting.
