Artichokes Italian-Style

This piquant vegetable recipe is said to have originated in the ghettos of Rome. It's a prime example of Jewish ingenuity in creating kosher dishes with local ingredients. Serve hot as an appetizer or side dish.


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 (14-ounce) cans artichoke hearts, drained and patted dry
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
1. In a medium skillet, heat olive oil over high heat. Add artichokes and cook 2 minutes to heat through.

2. Reduce heat to low. Stir in garlic and lemon juice. Cook 5 minutes longer. Remove from heat and add Parmesan cheese. Stir gently to mix.

3. Transfer to an oiled broiling pan. Finish off under preheated broiler to brown at edges, 2 minutes.

NOTE: This can be made parve by omitting the cheese and seasoning with salt and pepper to taste.
