Spring Sauté with New Potatoes, Peas, Leeks & Artichokes

It's May 24th, which means we are literally right on the heels of the new GDPR regulation. As a one-woman show cooking and shooting in my very own Colorado kitchen, it's hard to believe that something like GDPR -- a regulation from the EU - would impact me. But, so many of my lovely readers live in the EU, and I wanted to ensure that everything was buttoned up so that you can still come get recipes.

So how does this even impact a little old blogger? That's a fair question. In order to know which recipes are most loved, and which are flops, I use tools like Google Analytics to see which recipes are most popular and why. I also use advertising to help keep the blog running. So, no matter where you live, you'll notice a few changes around here. First, you'll want to consent to the use of cookies and pixels (if you haven't already) for the best website experience. A little pop up should show right when you first visit Foraged Dish on a new computer, where you can give permission. Like for most bloggers (and websites!) this will help my site load faster for you, help me evaluate which types of recipes to make, and more. If you have any questions or concerns, I'm an open book. But also, please feel free to check out my privacy policy here. Also, if you subscribe to Foraged Dish via email, you can always update your settings! Just use the link in the email footer. 

This stuff might be a bit "boring" but it's important to me that you know you can safely visit Foraged Dish. 

Alright. Now that we have that covered, let's talk about this spring skillet. Because it's a must make for this month!!

Really, any excuse to eat artichokes is valid in my book, at any time of year. In the winter and early spring, this means making do with canned or marinated artichokes. I say "making do" because the alternative is fresh, but marinated artichokes aren’t necessary lesser than their fresh counterpart. Just different.

So while artichokes aren't ready to be harvested yet, the canned variety still feels perfect in this moment. Leeks, with a mellow onion flavor, get caramelized in the bottom of the pan until they're sweet. Young potatoes and peas add a light starchiness to this dish -- making it satisfying on soggy spring days (it has been raining here all week) or warm ones.

Hope you enjoy!
