“What in the world is Hearts of Palm?” Hearts of palm actually does come from palm trees, but don’t worry, the harvesting process does not harm the entire plant. The white cylinder-shaped palm hearts come from the tender, immature, growing top of the crown part of the tree.

The taste is very similar to an artichoke, but the texture was much more tender. Then I was pleased to see the nutritional facts: Zero fat! Low carb! …and it has protein and lots of potassium. Sounds like a nutritious lunch or dinner to me! A quick look through my pantry, and I came up with this three-ingredient delicious and easy to make recipe that smells like a pizza cooking in your oven!
