Vegan Everything Bagel Dip with Carrot Lox


I made this recipe as an excuse to make vegan lox because I have always been curious about the taste. I will admit to never having real lox before going vegan but I understand the essence of the flavor. For my carrot lox I used the recipe from Isa Chandra Moskowitz’s cookbook, Fake Meat: Real Food for Vegan Appetites. There are other carrot lox recipes online that would also work.

This vegan everything bagel dip is all the things I love in bagel toppings: everything bagel seasoning, vegan cream cheese, and fresh herbs. The best part is that it is healthy and gets an extra boost of protein and dietary fiber from the lentil base.

The recipe comes together quickly and is the perfect addition to brunch. It all starts with canned lentils mixed with spices which is the bottom layer of the dip. Next, the vegan cream cheese is spread over for layer two. Then, a vegetable layer with cucumber and red onion. Finally, everything is finished with fresh dill, capers, and carrot lox. If you can’t find Vegan Crème Fraîche check out my quick and easy recipe to make it yourself.

I made bagel chips to go along with this dip but it is also great slathered on a toasted bagel. Try it out for your next brunch, party, or just because.
