Vegan Lox

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWhat’s better than lox and cream cheese on a warm bagel with onion and tomato on a lazy weekend morning?  Not much I would say.  But since going vegan, there’s been no lox for us.  Until now, that is!!  This recipe makes the most amazing lox.  The taste and the texture are pretty spot on.  Even if you eat it alone, it’s really good.  But if you have it on a bagel with all the trimmings, you will be amazed at how close it is!!  And, if you don’t like peppers, don’t worry.  My husband and all 3 of my kids hate peppers so much that they avoid them at all costs, yet they love this lox!  Let me know what you think!  I’d love to hear!!
