Artichokes alla Romana (Roman Style Artichokes) is an iconic dish of the typical Roman cuisine, and Lazio in general. It is a side dish that combines simplicity and tradition.

The recipe is very easy: the artichokes should be cleaned, removing the harder outer leaves, seasoned with minced garlic, parsley and mint and then placed in a pan with high sides, traditionally upside down, well tightened. Steam and cooking over low heat ensure a concentration of unsurpassed flavors and aromas.

    Arrange the stuffed artichokes in a saucepan with the stem facing upwards; add 5-6 tablespoons of oil, a ladle of water, 2-3 tablespoons of white wine and to taste a clove of garlic with the peel.

  • Step 5

    Covered, bring to the heat and cook for 20 minutes from when the liquid begins to boil. Serve them with their cooking juices, which should be quite thick.

Tips & variations

  • The Roman-style artichokes can be kept in the refrigerator for 2-3 days at most immersed in their cooking liquid. If you have used all fresh ingredients you can freeze them, sealed in an airtight container.

  • If you can't find the mint, which has a more delicate taste, you can opt for parsley.

  • These artichokes are also excellent for seasoning pasta, just chop them once cooked!
