Veggie Cream Cheese
1 container of Cream Cheese
2 Tbsp each Shredded Carrot
Broccoli - all veggies diced
1 tsp Ranch Dressing mix (from pouch)
Empty the container of cream cheese into a bowl. Mix in finely diced veggies and ranch powder, stirring thoroughly to combine. Replace in the original container and keep refrigerated.
Notes/Substitutions: My biggest tip; get your veggies from the salad bar at the grocery store! That way you can get exactly what you want, pre-cut (though I dice them finely at home, it's really up to your preferred mouthfeel), and in small ammounts. I also use this short-cut on MYO pizza, it saves so much time and money! Neufchatel cheese can be substituted for cream cheese, and the ranch dressing mix can be omitted completely.
