Born Dutch, living French, Myrthe is living a simple life at the beautiful French countryside.
I hope you enjoy her musings and photography (pictured below ) . . .
Artichokes are beautiful, healthy, easy to cook and a pleasure to eat.
No need to say that it's one of my favorite vegetables.
How to cook :
Cook or steam them until the outer leaves can easily be pulled off.
Cooking : +/- 45 minutes in a large pot of boiling water
Steaming : +/- 15 minutes
How to eat :
Take one leave at the time, dip it in a vinaigrette (mixture of vinegar, oil, mustard) and eat the little fleshy part.
Keep on doing this until the leaves become thinner. You can eat them or pull them of.
To reach the heart remove the hairy part (inedible).
Put some vinaigrette on the heart and enjoy !
