Walnut Crusted Artichokes (Vegan). If you are looking for a unique, amazing appetizer, this is it.
Walnut Crusted Artichokes are mouthwatering.
Walnut Crusted Artichoke Hearts are ready in about 20 minutes and are SO good. I think artichokes are delightful just about any way you make them, but sautéing them with a walnut crust definitely makes my list of best appetizers. You can use canned, marinated or frozen artichokes. I especially like marinated ones because the combination of the tangy artichokes and the walnut breading is terrific.
I’m reposting the recipe because May 17 is National Walnut Day. This vegan/vegetarian recipe (modified just a little) comes from Robin Robertson’s Vegan Planet (affiliate link). Great cookbook. I have three of Robertson’s cookbooks, and they all have amazing recipes. She is one of my favorite cookbook authors.
