    • 6 x Artichokes cleaned Roman style
    • 3 Tbsp. Extra virgin olive oil
    • 3 x Garlic clove crushed
    • 1 c. Dry white wine Freshly-grnd black pepper to taste Salt to taste Lemon juice


    1. Cut the cleaned artichokes in half lengthwise. With the flat side down slice the halves into 1/2-inch pcs. Place in a bowl and toss with lemon juice to prevent discoloring.
    2. Heat a large frying pan and add in the oil and garlic. Saute/fry for just a moment, then add in the artichoke slices. Saute/fry till very lightly browned, about 5 min.
    3. Add in the wine, cover and simmer till tender, about 15 min. Salt and pepper to taste.
    4. HINT: Cleaning an artichoke ROMAN STYLE is simple. Break off the first two or possibly three rows of the lower outer leaves. Using a paring knife cut off the top half of the remaining leaves. Do this by holding the artichoke on its side, cutting down on an angle away from the stem. Turn the choke as you cut till the purple thistle center is exposed. Using a grapefruit spoon, remove the purple center, exposing the meaty artichoke bottom. Cut off the stem, leaving about an inch. Trim off the tough exterior skin of the stem. Rub the whole choke with fresh lemon juice to prevent discoloring.
