1 Lemon

Extra Virgin Olive Oil


Clean the artichoke.

Peal the leaf around the artichoke and cut the stem

Cut the top of the artichoke and open them ( I pound them lightly on the table top down, so they open – see picture on the right)

Add water to a bowl and squeeze the lemon in the water.

With the remaining lemon, coat the artichoke and put them in the water

Chop parsley and garlic very fine

Add salt and pepper

Drain the artichoke very well.

Add some of the garlic and parsley mix inside each artichoke.

Put the artichokes in a pan

Pour 1/2 cup of oil in the pan,

Add 2 cups of water, but don’t cover the artichoke completely

Adjust for salt and pepper

Add 2 whole garlic cloves and parsley to the pan.

Bring it to a boil.

Cover the pan

Cook the artichokes very slowly until tender

Serve Immediately

Enjoy, Buon Apetito
