Zesty Garlic-Avocado Sandwiches

Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 30 min.


6 servings

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.


  • 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


  1. 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.
