Broccoli in a Garlic Herb Cream Sauce

Broccoli in a Garlic Herb Cream Sauce
I have a thing for making cream sauces out of Laughing Cow Light cheese.  It's just amazing how those little simple wedges turn into the most perfect creamy and rich sauce when mixed with heavy cream.  I've used Laughing Cow to make sauces in my SHRIMP IN A GARLIC CREAM SAUCE as well as my CHICKEN IN A SUN DRIED TOMATO CREAM SAUCE.  The newest thing to try this magic sauce on is vegetables!  The Hubs and Girl liked it (Boy is out of town) and I thought it was a nice change from our normal basic steamed and buttered broccoli.

4 servings
5 net carbs per serving

1 pound frozen or fresh broccoli florets
3 wedges of Laughing Cow Light Garlic & Herb Spread
1/3 cup heavy cream
chopped chives (optional for garnish)

Steam broccoli using your preferred method (I use a microwave steamer).  Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, cook Laughing Cow wedges over medium heat until melted and kind of a chunky, melted mess, stirring regularly.  Add the heavy cream and continue to stir.  In a few minutes the magic happens where that goopy mess because a lovely cream sauce.  Pour sauce over broccoli and garnish with chopped chives if desired.


  1. This sounds so good I am going to try tonight,a good change from plain broccoli. Do you have a quick carb count per serving?

    1. Hi Anon, the carb count is listed in the recipe, directly under the Star value. 5 net carbs. I hope you enjoy!
