  1. In a food processor or liquiiser, combine the artichoke hearts, garlic and olive oil. Process until smooth. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Slice the sandwich rolls in half lengthways and pull out most of the soft bread from the top and bottom.
  3. Spread the artichoke paste onto each side of each roll. Place layers of red peppers, rocket, salami, mozzarella cheese, pepperoncini, olives and onion into the rolls. Press sandwiches together and wrap tightly in foil.
  4. Place sandwiches in the refrigerator and place something heavy on top. It helps to place a plate on top, then place tins or any weighted containers on top. Chill for up to 3 hours. Unwrap, cut in half and enjoy.


Pepperoncinis (sometimes peperoncinis) can be purchased in Italian speciality stores or online.
