Read the blog above for step-by-step instructions and tips.
  • 2 bunch small purple artichokes (about 2 lbs or 1 kg)
  • ¼ cup (60 ml) olive oil
  • ½ cup (120 ml) dry white wine
  • ¼ cup (60 ml) lemon juice
  • 3 large garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 small handful chopped parsley
  1. Trim the tops of the artichokes and remove the tough outer leaves.
  2. Cut each artichoke in half lengthwise.
  3. Heat the olive oil in a large saute pan over medium high heat.
  4. Add the artichokes, cut side down, and brown them in the oil until they are nice and golden. This will take about 5-7 minutes. Season them with salt and pepper while they are cooking.
  5. Add the wine, lemon juice and minced garlic and bring to a simmer.
  6. Cover the pan and simmer/steam the artichokes over medium heat until they are tender when pierced with a fork. This will take 20-30 minutes.
  7. Listen to the pan. If it seems like the wine has evaporated add a bit of water and re-cover. If you do not have a tight fitting lid you can use a pizza pan weighed down by something (I use my salt grinder and olive oil bottle).
  8. When the artichokes are tender toss with the parsley and serve.
  9. The artichokes can be served warm or at room temperature.
