Recipe: Artichoke and Sweet Pea Gratin


I found this recipe in Food Network’s Magazine {January/February 2012} and thought it sounded delish. I tweaked it just a bit and now I think I’ve found a new family favorite!

What makes this side dish an even bigger hit is the fact that the it uses pantry ingredients and things I always have on hand! Win!

You’ll be seeing this on my meal rotation regularly.

:: Artichoke & Sweet Pea Gratin

1 Tbsp {organic} butter
1 Tbsp flour
1 1/4 cups {organic} milk
1 can artichoke hearts (in water/not oil)
2 cups frozen peas
Parmesan cheese

Whisk butter and flour together in an oven proof skillet {I used my cast iron skillet} over medium high heat for about one minute (the flour should bubble and start to get dry). Add the milk and whisk until boiling.

Add the artichokes (I chopped mine into quarters first) and frozen peas (do not thaw). Bring to a simmer. Then, top with parmesan cheese (I just grated it right over the top with my microplane so I didn’t measure – just enough to cover the whole dish like a light dusting of snow. :)

Pop it into the oven on broil. Broil for just a few minutes. When the cheese bubbles and browns it is ready!
