EVERY DAY: AN EASY – FAST – AND CHEAP – RECIPE THAT SUITS EVERYONE
These artichokes baked in the oven are a complete and tasty dish, very simple to prepare: delicious artichokes covered with a crispy and tasty crust, slightly spicy, made with bread and pecorino; parsley and basil complete, and enrich this delicious recipe.
Ingredients for 4 people: 8 artichokes – 1 lemon – 1 cup breadcrumbs – 1 bunch parsley – 1 bunch basil – 50 g grated pecorino – 2 cloves of garlic – chili pepper – extra virgin olive oil – salt
Clean the artichokes, remove the harder outer leaves and leave about 3 cm of stem. Cut them in half lengthwise, remove the hay and transfer them in cold water acidulated with lemon juice.
Peel a clove of garlic and sauté with a little extra virgin olive oil in a baking pan (resistant to the heat of the oven).
Remove the garlic, add the artichokes, season with salt and cook over a low heat for 20 minutes, wetting with a little water.
Pass the breadcrumbs to the mixer and mix it with 1 pinch of chili pepper, pecorino cheese and the mix prepared with the remaining garlic, parsley and basil (also chopped).
Sprinkle the artichokes with a little olive oil, sprinkle with the prepared mixture and pass under the grill to gratin until a golden crust is formed.
Serve these artichokes in the oven hot as a side dish or (in larger portions), as a main dish.
Enjoy your meal!
