Fresh spring artichokes and peas are excellent, actually tasty ways to help reach your daily recommended 25 grams of fiber. Toss them with sweet cherry tomatoes, tart lemon, and licorice-y fennel for a salad exploding with flavors.

Appropriate for: Clean, high-fiber, vegan, vegetarian diets


  • 6 baby artichokes
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 cup vermouth
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • Zest and juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 tablespoon fennel seeds
  • 1 cup low-sodium vegetable broth
  • 2 cups fresh or frozen peas
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 cup finely chopped parsley



1. Remove outer leaves of artichokes. Cut artichokes in half and remove inner “hay” with a knife. Place artichokes in cold water with lemon juice to prevent browning.
2. Heat olive oil in a skillet or wok. Pat artichokes dry. Add to the skillet and cook 2 to 3 minutes until golden-brown, stirring occasionally. Add vermouth, garlic, lemon zest and juice, and fennel seeds. Once liquid is reduced by half (about 5 minutes), add vegetable broth and peas, and saute for 2 minutes until peas are tender. Add tomatoes and salt, and sauté for another 2 to 3 minutes. Sprinkle with parsley and serve warm or cold.
