Dinner 02/03

Artichoke Hearts Stuffed with Mushrooms in a Cognac Cream Sauce

Roasted Fingerling Potatoes

Roasted Broccoli

Roasted Cauliflower

While watching TV after lunch recently we caught an episode of "Essential Pepin" (the artichoke segment starts at 11:11) on PBS* -- Liz immediately called the local grocery store to insure they had copious amounts of artichokes. I can only imagine the bemusement of the produce manager upon receiving the call ;)

The artichoke dish is a riff on a this recipe, subbing the usual vegan ingredients (skipping the whipped cream at the end -- it didn't need it).

To accompany the main dish, we roasted some fingerling potatoes (split in half, olive oil, salt, pepper, herbes de provence, roasted at 450F for 40 minutes), and a batch of cauliflower and broccoli (olive oil, salt, pepper, 450F, 15 minutes).

* yes, PBS is good for something other than Downton Abbey** -- who knew? ;)

** don't get me started about how Dr. Clarkson is the possibly the worst Doctor of all time.
