Garlicky White Bean, Artichoke and Broccoli

Garlicky White Bean, Artichoke and Broccoli

A very long day, our weekend guests  had just left and I really didn’t feel like turning around and making supper.  Where’s my glass of wine and foot stool?  I’ll just sit here while someone cooks.

No offers?

No, don’t get up, I take care of it (me walking toward the kitchen).

This will have to be a ‘shop my pantry’ meal. I found one head of broccoli in the refrigerator wanting some attention. There was also a can of artichoke hearts that I was saving for making dip (my go to recipe here) or an impromptu pizza (one of my faves here) and a lonely can of white kidney beans hiding in my cupboard, great to have on hand when you need to extend a pot of chili (my easy recipe here).  My little galley usually, mostly always, definitely maybe, has a good supply of garlic and olive oil.  A squeeze of fresh lemon juice, a sprinkling of parsley and grated parmesan and my (mostly) plant-based supper was born.  For some added protein try topping with a poached egg.

One pan, one serving spoon, two dinner plates, knives and forks, delicious supper…. now where’s my glass of wine and foot stool?
