Swedish Bagel with Cream Cheese, Dill and Beets

Swedish Bagel with Cream Cheese, Dill and Beets 

great vegan brunch

From our friends at Dianne’s Vegan Kitchen

 

On the Standard American Diet, breakfast tends to
revolve around eggs, bacon, sausage, and cheese. What do you do once you remove
those foods from your diet? There are many areas of help and this recipe
is one.

At first glance, Nordic cuisine doesn’t seem
particularly vegan-friendly. But luckily it’s easy to creatively reimagine many
classic Nordic recipes, like this bagel topped with sweet sliced beets and
homemade cashew cream cheese. Bye-bye lox and schmear!

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 45 minutes

Total time: 55 minutes

 

Serves: 4

 

Ingredients:

·        
1 large beet (5 ounces/150 g)

·        
4 bagels any variety

·        
6 tablespoons Cashew Cream Cheese (recipe
follows)

·        
1 tablespoon minced fresh chives

·        
2 tablespoons fresh dill

 

Instructions:

 

1.      
Wash the beet, place in a pot, and cover with
water. Cover the pot with a lid and bring to a boil. Simmer for 40 to 45
minutes, until the beet is fork-tender.

2.     
Drain the beet and let cool to room temperature.

3.     
Peel the beet and cut into 1/4-inch-thick (5 mm)
round slices.

4.     
Slice each bagel in half and toast in a toaster
or dry nonstick skillet, cut sides down, for 2 minutes.

5.     
Spread one side of a bagel with 1 1/2
tablespoons of the cream cheese. Arrange one quarter of the beet slices on the
cream cheese and garnish with the chives and dill. Top with the remaining bagel
half. Repeat with the remaining bagels and fillings. Serve.

 

Note:

 If you can find cooked beets in your
supermarket, those are fine to use. Pickled red beets taste great here, too.
