 Zesty Garlic-Avocado Sandwiches
Here’s a tasty meatless sandwich I concocted by combining some of our family’s favorite ingredients—garlic, avocado, cream cheese and bagels. For a variation, add fresh chives or minced sun-dried tomato to the cream cheese. Leftover spread makes an excellent veggie dip.
6 ServingsPrep/Total Time: 30 min.


  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 2 medium ripe avocados, peeled
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 6 whole grain bagels, split and toasted
  • 6 slices tomato
  • 1/2 cup sliced cucumber
  • 6 slices red onion
  • 6 sweet red pepper rings
  • 6 lettuce leaves


  • In a small bowl, beat the cream cheese, avocados, garlic and salt
  • until smooth. Spread on bagels; top with tomato, cucumber, onion,
  • pepper rings and lettuce. Yield: 6 servings.
