Artichokes Roman Style

Ingredients – 6 Servings:

  • 12 medium-sized artichokes
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • Salt, pepper
  • 4 tbs. Olive oil
  • Parsley
  • 1 Lemon, squeezed

Remove the stalks, tips and tough outer leaves of the artichokes, keep the artichokes in cold water and lemon juice, until ready for cooking (this will prevent them from turning black).

Place artichokes in a pan (in which they fit tightly) and add all the other ingredients with just enough water to cover, bring to the boil, cover the pot and let simmer at a reduced flame for a few minutes.

Uncover the pot and cook for another 15-20 minutes.

Place in serving dish – Serve hot or cold
