you know what, it was really good, but both DH and I thought it could do WITHOUT the artichoke hearts! LOL. I did add some veggie italian sausage too.

it's not totally necessary, but better for you nutritionally i believe. sometimes if i'm in a hurry, i just rinse it.

so while gathering my ingredients...no kidney beans! used canellini beans instead. it's cooking as i type this. i'll let you know how it tastes! smells really good!

well, it was pretty delicious! i think i did a tad bit more than a "pinch" of cayenne cuz it had a bite to it, but i liked it. my husband liked it too.
i think the white beans sort of got lost in the flavor tho. i'll definitely do kidney beans next time.

We had this last night. It's so good! We had that with gluten free spinach muffins. I made those with brown rice flour and applesauce. No yogurt since we had family over and some of them can't do gluten or dairy.
