Greek Style Artichokes with Olive Oil (Aginares A La Polita) Recipe Ingredients:
- 6 large artichokes
- 3 spring onion, chopped onion
- 12 very small onions
- 2 sliced carrots
- 12 very small potatoes
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 1 cup olive oil
Instructions to Prepare Greek Style Artichokes:
Remove outer leaves of artichokes until tender ones remain and cut off 1-inch from the top. Also remove choke from the center and peel the base all around.
Place cleaned artichokes in salted water with lemon juice added to prevent discoloration.
Put the spring onions and whole onions in a flat saucepan. Add carrots, artichokes and potatoes. Pour over the olive oil, the juice of a lemon and flour diluted in 1 cup water. Sprinkle with chopped dill or parsley, salt and pepper.
Add enough hot water to barely cover the vegetables.
Bring to boil, cover and simmer for 1 hour or bake (covered) in a moderate oven for 1 1/2 hours, until tender.
Serve artichokes with the other vegetables on a serving dish and sprinkle with dill or parsley.
