How to make artichoke quiche

  1. First of all, start cleaning the artichokes, and once you have the hearts, leave them to soak in lemon water so they don't oxidize. Let's go into the pan, with the finely chopped onion, a nice drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and the artichokes, which you will have to peel to obtain nice strips .
  2. Cook everything with salt and pepper, blending with white wine halfway through cooking. When the vegetables are soft, then you can start bringing the filling to life.
  3. Beat the eggs with the cheese and add the artichokes and onions, the milk (or cream) and if you want some diced cheese (provola is fine). Complete with chopped fresh parsley.
  4. When you have obtained a homogeneous mixture, unroll your puff pastry into a round baking dish and pierce it with the tines of a fork.
  5. Add the filling and fold the edges . Prick these too with the tines of the fork and it will be ready for cooking.
  6. Go into the oven at a temperature of 180°C for about 30 minutes , and when the surface is nice and gratin, turn off and let it rest.

And here is a video recipe similar to our preparation, so you don't miss a single step:

The variant with potatoes

If you like, you can also add 2-3 potatoes . After blanching them in hot water for about 10 minutes, drain them, remove the skin and cut them into small pieces . They will still be decidedly raw, for this reason you have to put them in the pan to cook together with the artichokes until they are a little softer.

Then proceed as per the basic recipe, preparing the filling and then placing the filled cake in the oven.

The dish is ready, but also try all our recipes with artichokes and all our savory pies !


We recommend storing the cake in the fridge for a maximum of 2-3 days , inside a special container with a lid. We do not recommend freezing in the freezer.
