A comfortable dish that will warm you up on cold evenings: artichoke and potato cream with garlic croutons.
Artichoke and potato cream with garlic croutons is a great way to enjoy artichokes, which are in season in the cold months. Artichokes are exceptional diuretics , and are rich in beneficial elements for the body such as iron, potassium, phosphorus and magnesium. These vegetables are also purifying, allies against liver disease and effective in preventing kidney stones.
This cream, velvety and tasty, is enriched with onions (white or red from Tropea) and potatoes, while croutons flavored with garlic are essential to give a touch of crunchiness. A good extra virgin olive oil to dress, and the cream will be complete and… fantastic!
Preparation of the artichoke and potato cream with garlic croutons
- Start by cleaning the artichokes thoroughly, removing the woody part of the stem, and then put them in a little water acidulated with lemon.
- Peel the potatoes and cut them into chunks, and finely chop the white or red onion .
- Cut the well cleaned artichokes into wedges.
- Heat some extra virgin olive oil in a saucepan, and then just fry the onion.
- At this point, add the artichokes and potatoes, add salt, and then add just enough hot water, in order to cook everything.
- When the vegetables are cooked, blend them with an immersion blender and season with pepper and extra virgin olive oil.
- Toast some slices of bread in the oven, rub them with the garlic and then cut them into cubes to form croutons with which to enrich the artichoke cream.
