New Recipe: My Favorite Spinach

Tonight, I ate the JC Salisbury Steak, but needed a little something more.  I thought I'd post my recipe for my favorite spinach dish that I made tonight.  It's a staple in my house, and oh so tasty!

Now, my old favorite spinach was probably some sort of decadent Creamed Spinach or Spinach and Artichoke dip... so, I came up with this recipe as an alternative and something I could enjoy that made me feel like I was splurging.  It's JC-friendly, of course.... as is everything I eat these days!

Cheesy Creamed Spinach

Saute diced onions and minced garlic in a frying pan sprayed with Pam Olive Oil.  Quantities are really up to you, but I like the tiny diced onion since they add some crunch and flavor.  I'm quite generous.  Hit the garlic/onion with a little bit of salt and pepper.  

When the onions are sort of clear, add the spinach to the pan.  I fill the ENTIRE pan, because it cooks down so much.  It's about 1/2 of a bag from the grocery store.  

Then, cook and stir until wilted up and done.  Again, you'll notice the volume go WAY down.  Transfer to a bowl and add a Laughing Cow Light Garlic and Herb Cheese Wedge.  Stir it around until the cheese melts and you'll have a fantastic treat!

Not the best picture, but you can see what happens, and in the final pic you should be able to see the onions and garlic.

Hi! I'm brand new to Jenny (just finished day 2) but the spinach recipe sounds fabulous!! I love all of those things!! Can I ask - is that allowed on the plan? Can that be considered a vegetable plus something? Do you have to give up a snack to have that? Just wondering how it works. Thanks!!!

Per my JCC, one wedge of Laughing Cow Cheese is considered a limited free. Spinach is unlimited.... you can eat as much as you'd like! Onions and garlic, too!

Best of luck with the program, and thanks for stopping by! :)

OH I am so going to make this tonight!

Is the wedge of Cheese considered a meat or not quite an oz?

I've heard mixed reviews. Maybe two equals a protein? My JCC says it's limited free, however...
