    • 2 tsp agave
    • 1 tsp sriracha (optional, add more or less to taste)

  2. Drain your artichokes well. 
  3. Place all the breading, wet mixture and dry mixture inrgedients into three separate containers/plates.  Mix well.
  4. Dip drained artichoke to the dry mixture, coating well. Shake off excess and dip it into the wet mixture. Shake off excess and finally coat the artichoke with the breading. Repeat until all artichokes are coated with the three mixtures.

I am inspired through diverse cultures and am driven by my littles to help them discover what the world has to offer and how we can give back. There is an immensely strong connection to our world through food and I strongly cherish the belief that when we work together to inspire, to help, and to care for each other, we have truly accomplished humanity!
