Artichoke and sundried tomato sauce

IMG_8749Amy:

I made this one up to go along with the quinoa cashew loaf.  It’s a delicious combination 🙂

I love artichokes (as I’ve gone on about in previous posts) because they are so versatile, tasty and have almost a meaty or fatty texture despite being a vegetable!  I was excited to find some artichoke hearts packing in water at Costco (instead of oil) so I’ve been on an artichoke kick lately.

Ingredients:

1/2 cup canned artichoke hearts, packed in water

2 tbsp sunflower seeds butter

2 tbsp sundried tomatoes

1 tbsp fresh lemon juice

1 tbsp olive oil

2 tbsp water

1 tbsp fresh herbs (I used chives and thyme)

Salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

1. Place all ingredients into food processor.  Blend until smooth.  Add a bit more water if needed to thin it out.

2. Serve with crackers, over bread or with the quinoa, cashew loaf.
