For the hearty, nutty flavor of artichokes without the time-consuming prep work, this organic artichoke bruschetta from Bio Orto can’t be beat. Artichokes are a favorite in Italy for good reason, but we’ll admit the prep can sometimes be more hassle than we’re up for. That’s when we reach for this bruschetta spread, where chopped, peak-season artichokes are combined with garlic and extra virgin olive oil for a ready-to-use topper for crostini, spread for sandwiches, or pasta sauce.
Artichokes are high in fiber, folate, and vitamins C and K. They’re also one of the most antioxidant-rich vegetables out there. For centuries, artichokes have been eaten to aid liver function and digestion, and they have been shown to improve cholesterol levels. This artichoke bruschetta spread is an easy way to get this super vegetable into your diet!
