Anchovy Stuffed Artichokes with Marinara Sauce #SundaySupper

I have to admit, fresh artichokes intimidate me.  When I see them in the grocery store, I have NO IDEA how to even begin preparing them.  As a result, they are one vegetable that I have a tendency to avoid.  Well it’s a new year, and Isabel at (www.familyfoodie.com) is encouraging her readers to tackle something new on their bucket list for #SundaySupper.  Something that they may have been intimidated to make, or required too many ingredients.  After seeing her post, I decided to tackle my fear of artichokes for this weeks #SundaySupper.

Anchovy Stuff Artichokes with Marinara Sauce

So I went to the grocery store, and there were NO fresh artichokes to be found.  But before panicking, I ventured over to the frozen vegetable section, and found some frozen artichoke hearts.  My intention was to stuff the fresh artichokes with some type of breading, but I had to improvise since the artichokes were frozen.  Instead of stuffing fresh artichokes, I stuffed frozen artichoke hearts.  I’m sure stuffing the fresh artichokes would have tasted better, but these frozen ones tasted pretty good.

Here is how to make my Anchovy Stuffed Artichokes with Marinara Sauce

In a saute pan add 1/2 tablespoon olive oil, 1 tablespoon anchovy paste, 1/2 tablespoon fresh minced garlic, 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes, and 1 teaspoon dried parsley.

Place on medium heat and saute for about 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool.

In a bowl add the cooled anchovy mix, 1 cup fine breadcrumbs, 1 tablespoon olive oil, 1/4 cup chicken broth, 1/8 cup cooking white wine, and 1/8 cup grated parmesan cheese. Mix well to create a stuffing.

Thaw out the frozen artichokes and place on a baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt/pepper.

Add stuffing mix to center of artichokes.

Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 30 minutes or until stuffing is golden brown.

I’ve tried making fresh artichokes once and I had no idea how long to cook it. Needless to say, they were pretty raw. I love all the flavor combinations in this dish! Everything I love in one pretty package.

I have always been intimidated by fresh artichokes but I looked at my vegetable share box list and one is arriving in my order on Wednesday so I am going to challenge myself to actually give it a try. But I do love artichoke hearts and this is such a unique way of preparing them.

I’ve heard about those veggie share boxes. Seems like a great way to try new things.

Personally, I think fresh artichokes are overrated. I wasn’t a fan, and hubby hated them so much he banned then from the house. But I love artichoke hearts, so I think you went the right way.

Yeah…My family aren’t fans either. So this was a great way to get them to get artichokes.

I’ve always been too intimidated to cook with artichokes too. This version looks incredible – I love the stuffing! Maybe I should just make the stuffing and eat that by itself ;)

That’s a good idea…I could eat the stuffing solo.

Great improvising! I love artichokes and make them all the time and will have to try your stuffed version!

I like this version. The intimidating part of stuffed artichokes for me is always stuffing the whole artichoke. I like that you broke it into pieces here. Looks delicious!

Fresh artichokes intimidate me too. I have a friend who keeps promising me to show me how to cook them. So I’m waiting for her to show me what to do. Glad you tackled your list and shared this recipe.

The only way I know how to eat artichokes is steamed with a vinaigrette. This is a new and great way to change that!

Thanks Isabel..I was a bit disappointed when I couldn’t find fresh artichokes, but a cook must learn how to improvise :). I’ll definitely remake this dish using fresh artichokes whenever I find them in the store.

Very nice. One of my bucket list items is deep fried artichokes. It’s not really a recipe bucket list item, it’s more of a way to kick the bucket sooner list. Your artichokes look better for my health. Will have to try it out.

Yep…Definitely healthier than fried, but everything taste better fried, right???? LOL

I’ve only had spinach and artichoke dip, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. But these are quite yummy. And the marinara sauce just made them even better.
