- In a saucepan, sauté the artichokes, carrot, onion, and garlic for about 1 minute in the oil. Cover with water and add the lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil and simmer gently for about 20 minutes, depending on their size. Cool completely in the broth. Refrigerate.
To enjoy the delicate flavour of the artichoke, they must be cooked until the heart is tender. It can be added to a salad, pasta, or frittata. You can grill them or eat them as antipasti. Cooked artichokes will keep for two to three days.
You can find frozen artichoke hearts in Middle Eastern grocery stores.
