Ingredients

  • 1 Leek

  • 1/2 pint Cherry Tomatoes, halved (optional)
  • 2 Tablespoons chopped fresh Parsley

Method

Step 1

Slice leek in half lengthwise. Then chop width-wise into half moon slices.

Step 2

Heat large saute pan, add canola or grapeseed oil and saute leeks. Saute on low, constantly stirring, about 5 minutes.

Step 3

While leeks are cooking, slice chicken sausage and then add to pan with leeks for a few minutes.

Step 4

Add artichoke hearts, garbanzo beans, and tomatoes. Pour enough stock into pan to measure up midway on the side of pan.

Step 5

Season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil. Cover with lid and reduce to a simmer. Cook another 5 minutes or so.

Step 6

Serve with fresh herbs and grated parmesan cheese on top.

Think Out of the Icebox: Try adding kale and/or red peppers too.
