This is very similar to another recipe for a delicious vegetable-packed cream cheese that was published in Everyday Food a number of years ago - on a toasted bagel, it's my all-time favourite breakfast! (Plus, it's a great way to add vegetables to my morning meal.) Great idea to make it into a dip by adding Greek yoghurt and some lemon zest and lemon juice. I would also recommend adding very finely chopped red pepper to give the dip even more colour! Thanks, Sarah - love your videos.
