I love me some artichokes. I go through phases where I eat them constantly. I am in one of those phases right now.
I like to dip the leaves in mayonnaise or olive oil with salt and I like to have a side dish. Usually I’ll have some soup or some pasta. Last night, I wanted to mix it up a little.
I had a little bit of quinoa and a little bit of cous cous in the cupboard so I decided to just make both and use them up. I steamed up some broccoli and went hunting for ideas.
- The first obviously was combining quinoa and cous cous (cooked separately, of course.)
- I also substituted a generous pat of butter and some milk for the heavy cream and olive oil. Truth be told… I completely forgot about the olive oil.
- Also, instead of slivered almonds, I used a mixture of nuts – cashews, almonds and pecans – that my husband roasted the other day.
It was DELICIOUS!!!
This is definitely something I’ll be making again and again.
