tasty experiment

I decided to warm up some leftover PPK French Lentil Soup with Tarragon and Thyme for dinner tonight, and dug around to see what kinds of veggies I had on hand to supplement my meal. I found a container with a handfull of random quartered artichoke hearts that need to be eaten up soon, so I decided to eat those. While I will always eat artichoke hearts straight-up, I decided to be slightly adventurous and chuck them in the bowl with my soup.

SO FABULOUS! I will definitely be adding artichokes to my soup the next time I make it. Mmmmmm!!!!

I've never eaten artichokes straight up so I guess we're opposites on this topic!

I wish I could love artichokes;-(

Megan, I think artichokes are like capers, olives, mushrooms, pickles etc. -- all things you either love or hate. (Not necessarily as a whole group -- I love artichokes, pickles, and mushrooms, but despise both capers and olives. And I used to despise mushrooms.)

Good call! That would be good. Isn't it great when you have an idea, try it and it works out?! I guess that's why you're writing the cookbook and I'll be making the recipes out of it. :o)

Artichokes are one of my favs foods. I also dig hearts of palm.

I'd never thought of adding either to soup. Thanks for the ideas though!
