In the New York culinary canon, an everything bagel with lox and cream cheese is right there at the top. It’s one of those dishes you close your eyes and think about when you’re instead having, say, a grain bowl. Well open your eyes back up, because we’ve transformed the lox and bagel into bowl form.

We’ve kept all the elements intact—everything bagel crisps, cream cheese, and lox—and introduced them into a bowl of quinoa, arugula, tomatoes, and homemade dressing. It’s light and healthy while still being hearty and invigorating.
