Helpful Equipment

food processor

Directions

  1. In a food processor, add herbs (parsley, chives, basil) and pulse a few times to chop. Then add softened cream cheese and avocado.
  2. Start your food processor and add the lemon juice as it runs until the spread is light and fluffy and combined well. Season with a pinch of salt.
  3. Serve on toasted bagels.

IF you don’t have a food processor, you can dice the herbs very finely and mash together the spread with a fork, but it won’t be quite as combined.
