Ingredients

  • 1 thin baguette
  • 1/4 cup Herbed Butter Spread
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 4 artichokes
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for artichokes
  • 8 ounces cremini or porcini mushrooms, cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Mushroom and Leek Duxelles

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Preheat broiler. Slice baguette in half lengthwise and place on a baking sheet cut up; spread cut sides with herbed butter spread. Transfer baking sheet to broiler and broil until tops are toasted, 2 to 3 minutes. Turn and continue broiling until bottoms are toasted, 2 to 3 minutes. Let bread cool to room temperature.

  2. Step 2

    Meanwhile, fill a large bowl with water and add lemon juice; set aside. Remove leaves from artichokes and halve lengthwise; transfer to bowl of acidulated water and set aside.

  3. Step 3

    Heat olive oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add sliced mushrooms and season with salt and pepper; cook, stirring, until browned, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.

  4. Step 4

    Peel and core soaked artichokes and transfer to a medium saucepan; cover with acidulated water and bring to a boil over high heat; cook for 8 minutes. Drain. Rinse artichokes and pat dry. Thickly slice artichokes lengthwise and drizzle with olive oil; set aside.

  5. Step 5

    Top cooled bread with duxelles, dividing evenly between each half. Top duxelles with artichoke slices, followed by sauteed mushrooms; serve.
