I would love to share something creative for April Fool’s Day, but all I came up with was that artichoke rhymes with joke and recently found a crowd pleasing recipe from Bon Appetit Magazine and it is the perfect day to share.
I adapted this recipe based on what I had and it came out wonderfully warm, with a slight spice to balance the tomato sauce. I also cheated and used artichokes packed in oil already cooked with the long stem, yum!
1 package of pre cooked artichokes, long stem
1 cup fresh tomato sauce
1/2 red onion, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
Splash of red wine
Nice dash of dried hot chili flakes
Parsley, to garnish
Sprinkle of gluten free breadcrumbs
Gently sauté the garlic and oil, adding the onions soon after
Cook for about 7 to 10 minutes until soft and tender
Add the tomato sauce, wine and chili flakes and continue to cook for another 10 minutes
Slice the artichokes in half and lay in a dish
Squeeze the lemon over the artichokes
Top with the fresh sauce, chopped parsley and gluten free breadcrumbs, enjoy!
