Artichoke Bites

I have written about these artichoke squares before. They are a great side dish or party appetiser. My newest version of these delectable hand-held snacks, pictured here, taste a lot like pizza bites. I adapted my previous recipe by adding tomatoes, using sriracha to add some heat, and changing the ratio of artichokes and cheese.

Artichoke Bites

adapted from Tis the Season: Vegetarian Christmas Cookbook 
1 can (14 oz, 390 g) artichoke hearts

1/2 t dried oregano
1 T sriracha
1 c (100 g) grated cheddar cheese
Preheat the oven to 350 F (180 C).
Drain the can of artichoke hearts, reserving 3 T of marinade. Roughly chop the artichokes.
Heat a small pan and add the reserved marinade. Add the garlic and cherry tomatoes and fry until golden.
In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients.
Grease a 6" x 9" (15 x 23 cm) pan.
Pour in the mixture. Bake for 30 minutes, until lightly browned.
