Hot and Cold Comfort Food

Cheesy Mac and Sprouts2 HI-RES-1

If there's one thing we can all agree on, I think it's the fact that there's never a bad time for comfort food. Whether you're having a particularly stressful day or celebrating a special occasion, something carb-y, cheesy, sweet, salty and creamy is always sure to hit the spot. 

If you ask anyone what comes to mind when they think of comfort food, I think it's safe to say ice cream and mac-n-cheese will probably be some of the top answers. Vegetables, on the other hand, are likely to never find their way into this category. But why not have your cake and eat it, too?

Keep reading for new recipe inspiration that puts a new twist on the comfort food classics while also making Ocean Mist Farms vegetables as tempting as they've ever been!


Fresh Artichoke & Fennel Ice Cream

Much like my kids' motto, let's start with dessert first: Fresh Artichoke & Fennel Ice Cream. This beautiful pistachio-colored ice cream gets its hue from pureed fennel and artichoke, but no one would suspect a thing with the creamy, sweet result and robust flavor profile.

Cheesy Mac N Sprouts

While you wait for the ice cream maker to work its magic, whip up a quick bowl of Cheesy Mac N Sprouts for dinner. It comes together in an impressive 10 minutes, and by the time the family is done with dinner, the ice cream will be freshly churned. I can't think of a better comfort food duo!

Next time you have a comfort food craving, one of these recipes is sure to do the trick. I think I know what we're having for dinner tonight....

Growing up on California's central coast, I enjoyed delicious artichokes around the family dinner table and always on Christmas Eve! It is beyond perfection that I now market artichokes for a living and get to share the Ocean Mist Farms story and my love of all things fresh.
