I made a simple waterless main course with two tablespoons of onion cut into 3/8″ cubes, 1 clove garlic finely (1/8″) chopped, 1 cup frozen baby lima beans, and 6 ounces of grilled “artihearts” put, in that order, into a Saladmaster stock pan.
I cooked waterlessly – i.e., I covered the pan and heated it on medium high until the vapor release started jiggling, then I reduced the heat to low till the jiggle stopped. I let it cook for about 15 minutes. I mixed in 1/4 t kala namak (“black salt”, but other salt could be used), 1/4 t dried tarragon, and 1/8 t garlic powder, then served with plantains cooked on a cast iron pan with no oil, as well as quinoa.
Ideas for the future
I should explore more artichoke flavor combinations. I bet artichokes with potato and leeks, for example, would be good!
