Artichoke Altuna - Yumm!

I finally found a recipe I considered good enough to put up here. It's from a magazine called Cooking Light, whose aim is to create very tasty dishes that are a little better for you than traditional fare.

This one took me about 5 minutes to prepare (had to chop the green onions and artichokes) and 4 minutes in the oven. The red pepper adds bite, so if you like a little bite to your food, add some more, if you prefer it more smooth, omit it entirely.

PS: It is very artichokey. If you don't like artichokes, I wouldn't recommend.

Here it is, straight off of their website:


If the citizens of Altoona, Pennsylvania, want to adopt our world-class variation on this classic café sandwich, we grant them full latitude.

1/2 cup drained canned artichoke hearts, finely chopped
1/4 cup sliced green onions
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper
1 (6-ounce) can albacore tuna in water, lightly drained and flaked
2 English muffins, split and toasted
6 tablespoons (1 1/2 ounces) grated provolone cheese

Preheat broiler.
Combine first 8 ingredients in a medium bowl. Divide evenly among muffin halves; sprinkle with cheese. Place on a baking sheet; broil 5 inches from heat for 4 minutes or until golden brown.

2 servings (serving size: 2 muffin halves)
