It’s April so we’re celebrating the artichoke. Electrolux partner Sara Forte of Sprouted Kitchen shares tips, insights, and recipes featuring the versatile and often-overlooked vegetable.
Pizza doesn’t always get the respect it deserves. Thanks to decades of national chains delivering pies in 30 minutes or less, it’s easy to forget that pizza and flatbreads can be elevated to a more fanciful dish you can make in your own kitchen.
To really impress guests, showcase the tried and true artichoke on your flatbread. Artichokes are easy to overlook but really are a key ingredient to have in your kitchen. They’re pantry-friendly, so you don’t need to wait for a particular season to roll around to enjoy them. And they pack a flavor punch you don’t get with most vegetables — add them to your salad, frittata, or tart, and the dish takes on a new dimension.
This recipe calls for jarred or canned artichokes — either marinated or plain are fine. The flavor palate here is Greek-inspired, but you can play around with toppings. Try paper-thin fennel, mozzarella, some fresh basil, and a thin base of red sauce for a more traditional Italian flavor.
Live.Love.Lux. Tip: Bake flatbread to golden perfection every time with the Electrolux Wall Oven and its Perfect Taste™ Convection feature.
Once you get the hang of dough, it is quite simple to make at home, but does require some planning ahead to allow for a rise. To save time, most pizza shops will sell you a ball of their dough. Once you have your dough, this recipe is basically just assembly — which makes it perfect for an afternoon of casual entertaining.
