Instructions

2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use

1

Prep the vegetables

Heat the oven to 400°F.
  • Snap off the woody ends from the asparagus. Using a peeler and starting at the base and working toward the tip, thinly shave 3 [6] asparagus stalks into ribbons for the salad. Set aside the remaining whole stalks for cooking. Alternatively, cut the asparagus stalks on the diagonal into 1-inch pieces.
  • Zest the lemon and set aside the zest for the whole asparagus stalks; juice half for the salad and cut the remaining half into wedges for garnish. [Zest and juice 1 lemon; cut the remaining lemon into wedges.]
  • Coarsely chop the spinach.
  • Coarsely chop the artichoke hearts.

2

Toast the flatbreads

  • Brush the tops of the flatbreads lightly with oil.
On a sheet pan or directly on the oven rack, place the flatbreads side by side and bake until crisp, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board.
While the flatbreads toast, cook the vegetables.

3

Cook the asparagus stalks

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 tablespoon oil until hot but not smoking. Add the whole asparagus stalks, season with salt and pepper, and cook, turning occasionally, until crisp-tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a plate and toss with the lemon zest. Do not clean the pan.

4

Cook the vegetables for the flatbreads

In the same pan used for the asparagus, add the tomatoes, season with salt and pepper, and cook over high heat, stirring occasionally, until charred and starting to burst, 5 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a separate plate.
In the same pan, stir in the spinach, artichoke hearts, 1 teaspoon [2 tsp] oil, 1 tablespoon water, and as many chile flakes as you like; season with salt and pepper and cook over medium heat until the spinach is just wilted and the artichokes are warmed through, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the vegan “cream” sauce base. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
While the vegetables cook, finish the salad.

5

Toss the salad; finish the flatbreads

  • Cut the olives in half.
In a medium bowl, toss together the shaved asparagus, arugula, 2 teaspoons [4 tsp] lemon juice, and 1 teaspoon [2 tsp] oil; season to taste with salt and pepper.
Spread the spinach-artichoke mixture evenly over the flatbreads, leaving a ½-inch border around the edges. Top with the tomatoes and olives. Cut into squares.

Serve

Transfer the flatbreads to individual plates and top with the salad. Serve the whole asparagus and lemon wedges on the side.
