Thanks to Alton Brown, this recipe is so tasty spread on a bagel...


  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced into rings
  • 1 medium onion, sliced into rings
  • 4 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 small zucchini, sliced
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 8 oz. cream cheese
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Challah, foccacia, bagels, or pita bread, for serving


  • Preheat oven to 400º F.
  • Place the bell pepper, onion, garlic, zucchini, and olive oil in a medium mixing bowl and toss until the vegetables are coated.
  • Spread the vegetables evenly on a sheet pan lined with foil and place in the oven.
  • Roast, tossing occasionally, until they are soft and are beginning to turn brown around the edges, approximately 45 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and cool completely.
  • Place the vegetables in the bowl of a food processor along with the cream cheese and process until well combined and spreadable; do not process until completely smooth.
  • Taste and season with salt and pepper, if desired.
  • Spread on soft bread or bagel of your choice. Store in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to one week.
