Ingredients Needed for this recipe…

  • frozen artichoke hearts: we used one package of 12-ounce bag from Trader Joe’s.
  • frozen baby peas: one package, about 16-ounce.
  • extra virgin olive oil: always choose good quality olive oil.
  • onion: one medium onion chopped to flavor the veggies.
  • garlic: we prefer fresh garlic, but if you don’t have any on hand, you can use garlic powder.
  • fresh herbs: we prefer fresh Italian parsley with this recipe. It will give the veggies additional flavor and an aromatic freshness to them.
  • seasonings: crushed red pepper (or a dash of cayenne pepper), and salt.
  • liquid: only some water is added to the veggies to simmer and softened them.

Notes and Tips…

  • This delicious side dish can be made easily on the stovetop. 
  • Plus, you can make it ahead, and reheat it before serving.
  • Nowadays, we don’t have the time, or the patience to clean “fresh” artichokes. So we prefer frozen hearts, they are very convenient to have in your freezer when you need them.
