This summer there was this cricket world cup series going on. And, being a cricket fan my husband was home watching the match between India and Australia. I don't like cricket. I decided to make something to eat while he is enjoying his match. So , I had some marinated artichokes from whole foods and pastry dough at home. I decided to create something new. So this recipe is basically a result of experiment. —Devangi Raval
What You'll Need
Puff Pastry Base Store bought
Seasoned Artichokes , herbs and spices
4 to5 tablespoons
Fresh rosemary,roughly chopped
Salt to taste
Black Pepper to taste
Grated Parmesan cheese
Roll out the pastry sheets or if using frozen pastry sheets, just thaw them for sometime don't let it get too soft. Spread the mayonnaise, marinara sauce and spread the chopped artichokes. Add chopped rosemary on top of it. Add the salt and pepper. Sprinkle the parmesan cheese and grated gruyere cheese.
Bake them about for 10 to 15 minutes at 350 degrees F. Time varies with each oven differently. So please keep a watch at it.
Variation for this dish- It can be prepared with basil pesto, cilantro chutney or sun-dried tomatoes pesto instead of marinara sauce.
For toppings , you can use Zucchini and roughly grinded wasabi peas (comes as a snack). Can be prepared ahead. And, baked at the time of guests arrival. The flaky crust gives it a totally different twist.
For a sweet treat, dust the puff pastry sheet with some cinnamon and sugar , bake it for few minutes , spread nutella on top of it let it bake for another few minutes and add a dollop of mascarpone cheese , decorate it with fruits like strawberries, kiwis, bananas etc.
