t's been a while since I posted this heavenly future file idea: fried artichoke hearts!
I had a great time making them--it was indeed a trick to NOT immediately eat the hearts after having roasted the artichokes, but somehow I persevered!
Click on the link above for the original recipe to fry up the hearts, then see below for my adaptation of the dish: Hearts salad! It is a good way to make it seem like you're having something healthy with your fried food, a clever little trick if I do say so myself!
Artichoke heart salad
Layer greens on a dinner plate
Cut into quarters a cup or so of cherry or grape tomatoes and sprinkle over the greens
Place a half dozen fried artichoke halves/quarters over the tomatoes
Drizzle with ranch dressing
