Of all the flavored cream cheeses arrayed in a delicatessen display case, none looks more inviting than vegetable spread. Alas, looks are all you get with your average veggie spread, as the colorful pieces are actually freeze-dried vegetable bits. Take the time to grill fresh vegetables (you can do it a day ahead, when you re grilling something else) and you’ll wind up with one of the most exquisite shmeers ever to grace a bagel.
