I got a delicious tip from Weight Watchers magazine a month ago and used it last night: To make a lighter knockoff of creamed spinach, toss a wedge of Laughing Cow light cheese into your heated spinach.
I only had the Original Creamy Swiss flavor on hand, but the light cheese also comes in garlic and onion flavors. I seasoned the spinach with salt, pepper and garlic powder.
Laughing Cow cheese isn’t only good for spinach. Try it on light toast or a light English muffin for breakfast (I add turkey ham for a satisfying breakfast sandwich), or eat one wedge plain with fruit or vegetables.
