Fresh and tasty!

I love a good artichoke - especially dipped in this red pepper mayo! Ruth brought these little artichokes from her garden and I steamed them then cut in 1/2 and removed the choke and sprinkled with olive oil and s&p and grilled just to get some marks. The sauce is 3 jarred roasted red peppers and about 1/2 cup mayo in the blender. I sprinkled a little smoked paprika on top too. Yum! Next came my favorite Garbanzo bean soup. It's topped with hard boiled egg and arugula. I made this on the spur as I had some dried garbanzos that I soaked overnight and was going to make hummus - then I decided their wonderful chewy texture should not be pureed. Makes a huge difference - but don't not make it just because you don't have them - a good canned chickpea works too.
