Frittedda is a Sicilian dish from the capital city of Palermo and is bursting with fresh flavor. This dish is packed with artichokes, peas, and beans in agrodolce, Italy’s favorite sweet and sour sauce. Typically frittedda Siciliana calls for fresh vegetables, but we wanted to streamline the time-consuming process of trimming and preparing artichokes by instead utilizing canned or frozen artichokes. Fresh peas and fava beans are a treat and if they are in season we urge you to use them, otherwise frozen is a good year round substitute. Serve your frittedda Siciliana as a side dish alongside other plates or with crusty bread as a delicious vegetarian entree.
Note: If you would like to schedule this cook, but do not want to wait for the broiler to cool before refrigerating, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat in a medium skillet, add the scallions, and cook for 4 minutes instead of broiling.
