We are always looking for new and healthy side dishes that are easy to prepare. I am so happy with the way this Roasted Hearts of Palm and Artichoke recipe turned out. It is healthy, flavorful and definitely not your everyday, boring veggie side dish. We can feel like we are eating a delicacy right in our own dining room, any day of the week.
Reese Specialty Foods travels the globe to bring us a wide variety of high quality specialty foods. They have a myriad of products – too many to list them all here – but I will list a few. They have hearts of palm, artichokes, capers, anchovies and water chestnuts, plus various oils, dips and sauces. The wide variety of products they offer is impressive! You should check it out. These products also come prepared and ready to use, and I love that.
As you can see on the package, hearts of palm (and artichoke hearts) are Non-GMO Project Verified, so if that is a concern you have, well, you don’t have to worry about it with Reese products!
Hearts of palm are also great in other dishes. Head on over to the Reese website for some great recipe ideas.
They are a great way to add flavor and nutrition to dishes you already make, such as:
- Purees, such as hummus
According to Food Network, hearts of palm can also be made into an appetizer. Just slice them into coins, dredge in bread crumbs and deep fry until golden. Serve with marinara or tartar sauce for dipping. Your friends will be so impressed with your culinary diversity!
Hearts of palm were an ingredient used on Iron Chef America, and in Florida they are an ingredient used in what is called Millionaire’s Salad. So hey, I can call myself an accomplished chef or elite because I use this ingredient (and you can too!).
Now, for more about this recipe. There are only 7 ingredients, and that counts the salt and pepper! You just drain and rinse the hearts of palm and artichoke, pat them dry, cut them into bite-sized pieces, toss in olive oil, place them on a rimmed baking sheet, roast ‘em for a little while and viola!, a delicious and nutritious side dish.
A few tips on preparing Roasted Hearts of Palm and Artichoke:
- Drain the hearts of palm and artichoke in a strainer, rinse well and pat dry with a paper towel.
- Be gentle while drying (and tossing) these beauties, so as not to mangle them.
- Cut the hearts of palm into thirds.
- Cut the artichoke hearts in half. Keep a paper towel handy to absorb any liquid that may come out of the artichoke heart when you cut into it.
- Use your sharpest knife when cutting the artichoke hearts, as they can be difficult to cut with a dull knife – I learned this the hard way, of course.
- I use a small grater to “chop” the garlic. I like that it is quick and all the pieces are the same size.
