Nice picture but it'snt my favorite dish...Greetings from France,Pierre
Picture perfect! Nice play with the title.
Love the capture Cara. If you do cook any let us know how they turnkrendot out.
that should read "turned out"!
I have artichokes growing - and have tried cooking them - a lot of work for very little quantity - or taste I thought - so just think of them now as interesting ornamentals. The flowers look great in a vase - fresh or dried!How did yours turn out Cara?
Well, after watching several youtube videos on how to prepare an artichoke (my recipe said sliced) I clumsily made my way through the preparation stage getting rid of the thistley bit in the middle and slicing the inner leaves and heart up. The dish was like a risotto but with risoni instead of rice. Initially I thought the flavour was going to be too sour but it mellowed in the cooking and I added some red capsicum and carrot to add sweetness to balance it out a bit. Also in there was white wine, rosemary, tomatoes, stock, onion, garlic and oregano... not bad!
That's the secret then - cooking them with lots of other stuff - I've only tried steaming them and then dipping each "petal" into melted butter and lemon - and then disgustingly sort of scraping the flesh off each with my teeth.Not great!
