Very yummy. This recipe is really a more healthy alternative to traditional mashed potatoes. I roasted a few cloves of garlic and threw that into the food processor with the artichokes and milk. The recipe as written calls for very little butter, but the artichoke mixture was so creamy I was able to use even LESS and my potatoes were still moist and creamy! Healthy, easy, quick, delicious - everything I need in a recipe!
i would LOVE to give this recipe 5 stars, but it was just not THAT good! i was so excited to try it, but it was a let down. the only thing i did different was, diced my artichoke hearts instead of puree them. everything else was done according to the recipe. there was just no flavor beyond the normal "mashed potato" flavor. i was quite dissapointed. i may try again, if i happen to have some artichoke hearts that need to be used, but other than that, i will not buy them just for this recipe again
Four stars as written, as these would inarguably be on the “ho-hum” side, flavor-wise. But with a few small additions, these are easily elevated to five stars, particularly if you’re an artichoke lover like me. (I love artichokes so much that Santa used to put them in my Christmas stocking when I was a kid, but I digress) More butter, a chunk of cream cheese and fresh parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme made these exceptional. Ahhh, for summer, when otherwise expensive fresh herbs are plentiful right in your own back yard! I’d like to try other herbs as well – fresh oregano, dill or rosemary are all interesting possibilities. Very creative recipe.
These are really good if you're an artichoke lover. Since some reviewers said it made a lot, I used 3 large potatoes, and 2 cans of artichokes. I left about 5 artichoke hearts out of the puree and roughly chopped them, I wanted some chunks of them in the mash. It turned out great!
Delicious and creamy, without all of the "bad stuff" in normal mashed potatoes. My new favorite! Just be sure you cut all of the leaves off the hearts- they mess with the texture, and make for an unpleasent find.
These were good. I bought a jar of marinated artichokes and I next time I won't (didn't care for the marinade). Hubby LOVED them! He made TWO sandwiches with them and the "French Bread Rolls to Die For". LOL, he's just like a kid! I will try again!
WOW these were so good!!! Creamy and smooth especially with fresh garlic. I just recently learned to eat artichokes (mainly because of those restaurant spinach appetizers)! I followed recipe except for only using a half a jar of artichokes cause I was worried the kids wouldn't eat them. I will definitely make again!
Delicious. Did add a little parmesan cheese as suggested. Great flavor.
