Laughing Cows

11 Jul

Can cows laugh?  Every time I pop out a Laughing Cow cheese wedge from its cute little container, I wonder. 

Why “Laughing Cow?”  We obviously know why it’s not “Mad Cow” – if it was, they probably wouldn’t have any consumers.  But why not “Snoring,” “Burping,” “Growling,” “Purring,” or “Whistling Cow?”  Indeed, a question to ponder while you eat these…

Veggilicious Laughing Cow Chicken Quesadilla 

  • 1/4 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/3 cup broccoli
  • 1/3 cup shredded carrots
  • 1/4 teaspoon (1/2 clove) minced garlic
  • 2-3 ounces cooked or canned white meat chicken
  • 1 teaspoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • black pepper to taste
  • salt to taste
  • 2 10-inch whole wheat tortillas
  • 2 Laughing Cow garlic & herb wedges
  • nonstick cooking spray
  1. Use a frying pan with a diameter greater than that of the tortillas.  Saute broccoli, carrots, and garlic in the oil for about 7 minutes on medium/high heat..  Half-way through, add soy sauce, chicken, salt, and pepper.  Put mixture in a bowl and set aside.
  2. Smear 1 Laughing Cow wedge on one side of each tortilla.  Spray pan with a little cooking spray and reduce heat to medium/low.  Place one of the tortillas, cheesy side up, onto the pan.  Evenly spread the bowl of stir-fry mixture onto the cheese.  Then place the other tortilla, cheesy side down, onto the veggies.  Cook for 2 minutes.
  3. Using a spatula, carefully flip quesadilla and cook for an additional two minutes.
  4. Remove quesadilla from pan and plate.  Cut into 4-6 slices and serve!

Are you still wondering if it’s possible for cows to laugh?  Me too.
