Healthy, because

Even smarter

Artichokes owe their unmistakable, tangy aroma to the bitter substance cynarin. Cynarin helps to lower cholesterol levels, supports the liver in its detoxification work, and activates the flow of bile. Other artichoke ingredients have a positive effect on the eyes.

You can use any type of oil you want. Grapeseed oil can have a number of health benefits!

Preparation steps

1.
Wash and trim the artichokes and remove the tough outside leaves. Leave the stalks on, but peel the stalks and cut the artichokes into quarters. Sprinkle the artichoke quarters with lemon juice to stop discoloration.
2.
Crush the unpeeled garlic cloves using a garlic press.
3.
Heat the olive oil in a large heavy-bottomed pan. Put the artichoke quarters into the hot oil. Add the garlic and season with salt and plenty of coarsely ground pepper.
4.
Stir in water and add the parsley. Cover and cook over a medium heat for 15 minutes.
5.
Remove the ‘choke’ from the artichokes if necessary. This will depend on the size of the artichoke. Leave the artichokes to cool in the pan, then transfer to plates.
6.
Take the garlic and parsley out of the pan. Divide the cooking liquid between the 4 plates. Then sprinkle each plate of artichokes with 2 tbsp lemon juice. Season again with salt and pepper if necessary and sprinkle with a little olive oil. Leave to stand for 10 minutes and serve cold as an appetizer.
