Artichoke Hearts Veggie Blend with Yellow Rice

Meaty artichoke hearts and baby bella mushrooms are the focus of this fresh and savory dish!

What can I say about this meal other than just how delicious it is?  Well, I can tell you that I first developed this dish about a year ago.  At the time I was trying to come up with a vegan paella dish (something I’d still like to do), but it quickly evolved into a catch-all for fresh ingredients from our garden!  The end result was a dish that is simultaneously hearty and light!  Since then I have remade and refined the recipe so that it can be enjoyed year-round (and not just when our garden has runneth-over) and that is the version that I share with you today!  Enjoy!

  1. Yum!!! This is right up my ally! Put this on the meal plan for the beach house! I would love this but know my family (picky hubby and small kids) likely wouldn’t be as into it as me!
