Found this in Sunset magazine. It says it's good over rice or with slices of hearty bread. Add a tossed salad and it's a meal.

- 4 garlic cloves, peeled and minced

- 4 roma tomatoes, seeded and chopped (12oz) or 1 (14 1/2 ounce) can diced tomatoes, drained
- 2 (15 ounce) cans artichoke hearts, drained, rinsed, and quartered

This is excellent and really hit the spot on a cold winter evening. I was a little shy with the artichoke hearts but other than that made as per recipe. It was served with a hearty cornbread for warming meal.
Yum! Delicious and healthy soup. Nice balance of flavors. I forgot to get sage, so I substituted parsley. I also added 1/2 tsp of ground coriander. This is a keeper!
Everything on my wish list...quick, easy, ingredients that I always have anyway, healthy and FLAVORFUL thanks to a nice combo of red pepper, sage and lemon. It's more of a soup than a stew since it's basically ingredients in a liquid broth. I made a half recipe and over rice it serves four people.
