Saute artichokes and potatoes


Which is your favorite variety of artichoke? My favorite is the Spinoso Sardo or Ingauno or Spined, the ones in the picture. Then you have Verde Palermo, Catanese,  Niscemese,  Romanesco, Violetta di Chioggia those are only few of the Italian varieties, there are so many more on the market. My father is from Sardegna, where they grow the spined variety. I started eating artichokes at a really young age and my love for this vegetable/flower never stopped. I love artichokes simply sliced topped with orange wedges and radish as a light salad, in the picture above,  just raw enjoying every bit for every leaves till you get to the heart and the sweetness of it will capture you.  You can as well simply boil it or like in the recipe pair with potatoes, an easy and fast side dish that can turn in a vegetarian meal. Earthy flavor of Sardegna and if you cannot get to the original tough luck,……just joking…….enjoy it with the many varieties that I mention above.

Check the recipe under Vegetarian.

Hi everyone do you know the idiom that goes like this..... Do what you love and you will never have to work one day in your life This is my life and love every minute of it. Love and passion for food can become pretty messy in our house, my kids love to cook with me and I leave it to your imagination to what can happen when we try to make cookie dough or roll fresh pasta, thank God for my husband that supports and enjoy all this craziness.
