I love artichokes hearts more than any other vegetable. They have antioxidants, they’re good for your liver, and they’re even supposed to lower cholesterol! I could probably eat them unendingly with various preparations forever. Did you know they can even be made into liquor?? Usually I just cook them up on high in a saucepan with some olive oil, oregano, salt and pepper, but today I decided to kick it up a notch!
I mainly followed the recipe on the can. I minced a clove of garlic and heated it in about a half a tablespoon of butter on low heat so it wouldn’t burn. (I usually burn it, but no longer!)
Then I drained and quartered my can of artichoke hearts and sauteed them in my butter with some salt, pepper, paprika, lemon juice, and a little bit of ground ginger. Yummy!
To flesh out the meal, I assembled an English Muffin pizza with a bit of sauce, store-bought pepperoni, grated sharp cheddar, and a little oregano on top. I baked it on 350 until the cheese was melty and the muffin was warmed through. E voila! Lunch!
