Artichoke Bruschetta


Ingredients

serves 4-6

Artichoke
Garlic
Olive Oil

6 large artichokes with long stems, trimmed, halved, choke removed, and held in lemon water
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus extra for drizzling
10 garlic cloves
1 red onion, sliced thinly
1 lemon, sliced and seeds removed
1 bunch mint coarsely chopped, leaves and stems and all
2 cups dry white wine
1½ cups water
1 teaspoon red chile flakes, plus more to taste
2 tablespoons orange zest (see the video on how to zest)
Coarse sea salt, to taste
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Directions

Split the trimmed artichoke and remove the choke with a paring knife. Place cleaned artichokes in acidulated (lemon) water.

 

In a 12- to 14-inch sauté pan with straight sides, heat oil and add garlic, onion, lemon and chopped mint.

 

Place artichokes cut-side down in the pan. Sprinkle them with salt.

 

Pour in wine and water to almost cover artichokes. Add the chile flakes. Turn the heat to high and bring the liquid to a boil, then reduce to a simmer, cover and cook for 20 minutes, until tender when pierced with a knife.

 

Remove cooked artichokes to a plate with a slotted spoon. Finish with orange zest, coarse sea salt, drizzle of olive oil, chile flakes and freshly ground black pepper.

 

Serve on top of bruschetta or as is.
