1 (10-ounce) package frozen artichoke hearts, thawed
½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

2. In a Dutch oven or a large pot, bring the potatoes, ½ teaspoon salt and enough water to cover potatoes to a boil over high heat. Turn heat to medium low, cover pot and cook potatoes until they are almost cooked through. Remove from heat and drain well. Arrange potatoes in prepared dish.
3. While potatoes are cooking, sauté in a 10-inch sauté pan the onion, bell pepper and the artichoke hearts in olive oil until they are softened. Pour onion, bell pepper and artichoke hearts over the potatoes. Sprinkle them with ½ teaspoon pepper, thyme, parsley and remaining ½ teaspoon salt.
4. In a small bowl, combine the sour cream substitute (or tofu combined with white vinegar) and milk substitute until mixture becomes smooth. Pour this over the potatoes.
5. Bake in 425-degree oven for 20 minutes. Remove dish from oven and sprinkle with cheese substitute and cracker crumbs. Place dish back in oven and bake for another 20 to 25 minutes until cheese is melted and lightly browned. Remove from oven and serve.
