Vegetable Cream Cheese Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 2 packages (8 ounces each) of cream cheese, softened
  • 1 packet of vegetable soup mix
  • Saltine crackers
  • Optional: Garnish with a small cucumber slice

Instructions:

  1. Beat the softened cream cheese with the vegetable soup mix using a stand mixer or electric hand mixer with a whisk attachment on medium-high speed for about a minute, until everything is well combined.
  2. Transfer the mixture to a piping bag fitted with a star tip with a large opening. If you don’t have a piping bag or tip, you can simply spread the mixture on the crackers with a knife.
  3. Pipe or spread the mixture onto the crackers.
  4. Wash and cut the cucumber into quarters, then lengthwise into thin slices. Garnish each cracker with a cucumber slice (optional).

Tips:

  • I used reduced-fat cream cheese in this recipe, but you can definitely use full-fat cream cheese if you prefer.
  • Want to add more flavor without the added salt? Try adding garlic powder, onion powder, or other spices to the cream cheese mixture.
  • No worries if you don’t have vegetable soup mix on hand. You can easily make your own by using dried vegetables and herbs.
  • Use different types of crackers, like Ritz crackers, if that's what you have on hand.
  • If you’re piping the mixture, make sure the piping tip has a large opening to avoid clogging from the vegetable pieces in the soup mix.
