Delicious way to eat spinach. You can substitute the cottage cheese for part-skim ricotta cheese and the two laughing cow cheese wedges for ½ cup finely shredded Parmesan cheese.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven 400 degrees.
  2. Pulse spinach in three batches in a food processor until finely chopped. Transfer to a medium bowl.
  3. Add cottage cheese (ricotta cheese), laughing cow cheese, eggs, garlic, and pepper; stir to combine.
  4. Coat muffin pan with cooking spray. Divide the spinach mixture among cups to very top.
  5. Bake spinach cakes until set, about 25 minutes. Let stand in the pan for 5 minutes. Serve warm.

These spinach cakes are terrific! I subbed parmesan for the laughing cow as you suggested in your intro, otherwise made as directed. I sprinkled a bit of crushed red pepper flakes on top when I served it; I would probably use that instead of black pepper in the mixture next time. Easy to make, savory and delicious - thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for Spring Pick-A-Chef 2011

This is a really nice way to prepare spinach since it is both healthy and flavorful. The whole family ate it. I used cottage cheese and parm. Based on others reviews, I added crushed red pepper flakes to the spinach mixture. Thanks for sharing

This was very flavorful and easy to make. I would recommend allowing the laughing cow to come to room temp-- it didn't mix very well at all cold. I will make again!
