Hmmm...never seen frozen artichokes...but then again, I never looked. I'll have to try that. Hopefully I can find things like artichokes in my neck of the woods...hopefully people in the store will know what I'm talking about when I ask. (Don't laugh, I ran across someone who didn't realize that ginger existed in a form other than dried and powdered, in the baking aisle. The nearest ginger-having store is 45+minutes away.)
I made something similar to this (minus the potatoes) for Thanksgiving. It was colorful and yummy. The only thing is -- I used fresh brussel sprouts, and if I did it again (which I would), I'd cut the cooking time down by about 10 minutes. The sprouts were a little overcooked....or you can add them about 10-15 minutes into the cooking.
One, Green beens and slivered almonds, sauteed in olive oil and spices. (then baked)
Two: What about some kind of shepherds pie? My favorite vegetarian pie obtion is Cheese and broccoli. You have a creamy cheddar cheese filling, with broccoli, carrots and potatoes inside a pie crust. Aside for a short pre cook of veggies, its baked!
Edit: Oooooh, sautee the green beans in ghee not olive oil, and deffinitly use fresh ones!
