Laughing Cow Creamed Spinach

Laughing Cow Creamed Spinach
It's no secret that I like to use Laughing Cow spread wedges to make creamy sauces.  Just type Laughing Cow into the search box on the top right of my page and you'll see all the yummy sauces I've made with these magic wedges!  I've already posted a creamed spinach recipe as SOUR CREAM SPINACH but this one is made with my beloved Laughing Cow so I figured there's room for two on my blog.  I made it with half of an onion, which I thought was too much so I've written the recipe to only be 1/4 of an onion.  This was very creamy so if you like the taste of the spinach to shine through, you might want to reduce the Laughing Cow wedges from 4 to 2 or 3.  This was super simple to prepare, tasted great and the Hubs enjoyed so this was a winner all around!

4 STARS
2 servings
4.4 net carbs per serving

1 TBSP butter
1/4 onion, chopped
4 Laughing Cow wedges of any savory flavor (I used garlic & herb)
6 ounces fresh spinach
1 tsp red wine vinegar
salt and pepper to taste

Melt butter in large skillet over medium.  Saute chopped onion until translucent and soft.  Add Laughing Cow wedges and break them up, smash and stir them until melted (at this point is will look like a train wreck glob and you will think I'm crazy but just trust me, it will melt down to a sauce).  Add the spinach.  Once it starts wilting and breaking down (just a minute or two), add the red wine vinegar, salt and pepper.  Stir and mix until spinach is wilted to the consistency you like and the Laughing Cow is fully mixed through (usually just 3 or 4 minutes). *INDUCTION FRIENDLY*

  1. I saw this and realized I have never used Laughing Cow cheese before. It inspired me to go to the store and buy some. I sauteed chicken with onions, removed the chicken from the pan and made "your sauce". I returned the chicken to the sauce, added some steemed broccoli and it was one of the best meals!!! Thank you so much!

    1. I'm so glad you liked! I've used it in quite a few recipes! Just type Laughing Cow into the search box on the top right. It would be good anywhere that you are used to a cream sauce or even stirred into cauliflower "rice", poured over chicken, etc. Anything that you would want a thick creaming sauce with.
