Guests can help themselves to this torte more easily if you cut it into wedges before placing it on the buffet table.

If cream cheese-nut mixture is hard to spread, stir in 1 teaspoon of milk at a time to desired consistency.

Prepare and refrigerate this flavorful torte up to 4 hours before your party. Another way to save time is to roast and refrigerate the vegetables the day before the party, then assemble the torte 1 to 4 hours before the party.
