A perfectly toasted bagel, dressed up for Spring season! That is what a Bagel Sandwich is for me. I love bagels - be it for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. This particular sandwich is good for breakfast or a regular meal. It includes lots of veggies and salad greens. Has a good amount of cream cheese, which can be replaced by hummus to make it vegan. Dress it up with colorful veggies, edible flowers, sunflower, or melon seeds, a good smear of cream cheese or hummus, and it's a wholesome meal.

- Slice bagels horizontally into 2 pieces. Toast it. You can also skip the toasting part if you like your bagels to be soft.
- Spread cream cheese or hummus on each side of the bagels.
- Top one side with salad greens, tomato slices, avocado slices. I have used small heirloom cherry tomatoes. You can use any.
- Sprinkle sunflower seeds/melon seeds on top. Add a dash of salt and pepper, a drizzle of olive oil. Optionally you can top it with edible flower petals, and/or also make the avocado slices into an avocado rose and top the bagel with that for a beautiful presentation. You can either top it with the other side of the bagel or just serve it as an open-faced sandwich.
Enjoy this gourmet bagel sandwich with a cup of coffee or tea.
