Yes, I really love artichokes. Cooked, fried, warm, cold and if I could I would possibly make a cake out of it :). Artichoke heart salad is one of my favourites. I prepare very often as a starter. It’s delicious and easy. The only thing that takes a little time is to remove the leaves to obtain the artichoke heart, but with patience and good music on is no problem. After all after effort comes comfort :). Bon Appetit.
– 4 medium fresh artichoke, only hearts, sliced
– medium young green onion, sliced into rounds
– 4 cloves of garlic, sliced
– 1 tbsp of harissa
– half lemon, skinned, partly juiced, cut in pieces or preserved lemon
– sea salt
– 1/2 glass of pure water
– virgin olive oil
Heat the olive oil over medium heat in a medium saucepan. Add onion and cook till translucent. Add sliced artichoke hearts, garlic, harissa, lemon, salt and half glass of water. Cover and cook over medium-low heat for about 15-20 minutes until al dente. Remove from the heat. Put into airtight glass jar and place in the fridge for at least 2 hours before serving.
