Not Your Bubby's Bagel & Schmear

If you're trying to cut back on starch or gluten, treat a rice cake as a bagel-esque substitute. It's a crunchy vehicle for all your favorite bagel toppings! In place of cream cheese, try Trader Joe's Greek yogurt & chive dip for a flavorful, low-fat alternative.


  • Lightly salted rice cake
  • Greek yogurt & chive dip from Trader Joe's
  • Smoked salmon
  • 1/2 of an avocado
  • Red onion
  • Sprinkle salt and pepper
  • 1/2 of a tomato


Step 1: Spread the dip on the rice cake

Step 2: Add a layer of smoked salmon

Step 3: Top it with avocado, tomato, and red onion.

Step 4: Sprinkle salt & pepper to taste.
