Everything Bagels

For some unknown reason, they don't sell "Everything" bagels up here - except for the fact that the Man doesn't like them (something about onions and garlic for breakfast) - I can't imagine why they are not popular...

Anyway, it finally dawned on me that the "everything" part doesn't have to be in the bagel - it could be in the "cheese".

I make a simple "Cream Cheese" - I've tried the ones from the "Uncheese Cookbook" and several from the web - but most are too sweet for me.

1 cup extra firm silken tofu - I wrap this in a clean kitchen towel and rest a saucer on top for about 1/2 hour.
1 T lemon juice
1 1/2 t tamari
Just a few drops of Blue Agave Nectar
Dash of Salt

Mix all this in the food processor until creamy.

Then add - "everything" - I add:

1 t. minced dried onion
Dash of garlic powder
1/4 t. onion powder

Then I just store that in the fridge and after I toast my "plain" bagel - I top it with the cream cheese mixture and sprinkle on poppy seeds and sesame seeds - YUM.


  1. Clever. Everything bagels are my favorite, too.

  2. I'll bet homemade bagels are very good. I'll have to try some in ND. E
