fresh veggie cream cheese

One time while visiting Meg, she made me a bagel with some veggie cream cheese she had made herself. It was soooo good! She had taken some cream cheese and added every fresh herb and vegetable she had. I can't remember everything that was in hers but I think she had onion, garlic, jalapeno, tomato, dill, cilantro, green onions, and several others.

I made some in Charleston and loved it and experimented a little. The cream cheese can get a little watery from the vegetables, so I tried drying them out a little in the sun first when I made my next batch. Not nearly as good..don't dry them out!

I made a batch a couple days ago. In our fridge we had cilantro, green onions, garlic, tomato, cucumber, basil, spinach, and carrots. It's yummy, but not quite as yummy as I remember. I think it needs to sit in the fridge a little longer and "get happy" as my mom calls it.

Thanks for the great idea Meg!
