Artichokes And Potatoes

Artichokes and potatoes give life to a side dish worthy of a King: a perfect dish to be enjoyed in combination with fish and meat.

Artichokes and potatoes are two vegetables that go perfectly together and when cooked together can create a memorable dish . Think of the sweetness of the potato that blends with the bitterness of the artichokes, and then the softness that meets the crunchiness … in short, we are truly faced with the perfect side dish, so perfect that it could even be a single dish!

Artichokes, then, are rich in iron and therefore cannot be missing from our tables. There are many different types , with and without thorns, green and violet, each has its own characteristic and its scent: to make them raw, for example, the thorny ones are better while in this recipe violets are normally used.

Let's immediately see how to prepare this typical Tuscan recipe, both in the pan and in a lighter version in the oven! Come on, let's get started right away !

How to cook potatoes and artichokes in a pan

  1. First of all, let's deal with cleaning. As for the artichokes, you must obtain the hearts by removing all the external parts that are too hard . Once you have removed the leaves, soak the artichokes in water and lemon , so as not to let them oxidize.
  2. Cut the potatoes into cubes of the size you prefer (we recommend 2-3 cm) and place in a bowl of cold water for a few minutes to eliminate some of the starch.
  3. Let's go to the pan: garlic, oil and obviously… hot pan! First put the well-drained potatoes and sauté them over high heat for 5-7 minutes until a nice crust is created.
  4. Then add the artichokes and about 1-2 glasses of water or broth.
  5. Add salt, lower the heat and leave to cook on a low heat for about 20-30 minutes until the potatoes and artichokes are soft.
  6. Finally add the parsley and remove the garlic.
