My husband and I are big fans of artichokes! With my spinach and artichoke pasta being such a big hit, I thought I would come up with something else to make with artichokes.
Spinach & artichokes are just a match made in heaven in my book! So with this recipe you can either use quinoa or rice.
3-4 garlic cloves chopped
1 tbsp coconut oil
1 can of artichoke hearts (get organic in a glass can if possible)
1 1/2 cup of cooked quinoa (or rice)
1/2 cup organic cheddar cheese (it won't be yellow! I get the kind that is from whole foods without dyes)
1 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp paprika
1 tsp parsley
1-2 cups of spinach (mine was from my CSA that I froze)
First melt the coconut oil in the pan and begin to sautée the garlic. Once the garlic begins to be fragrant- add in the artichokes and sautée a few more minutes.
Add in the spinach & spices and stir in well. Next thing to do is add your cooked quinoa (the reason mine is cooked already is because I meal prep at the beginning of the week).
Mix everything together well and add the cheese.
Serve as a side to a meal or as an entire meal itself! It's yummy! My husband LOVED it! He even went and got chips to eat with the meal!
