It takes a bit of patience to prepare an artichoke, but once cooked you will be rewarded by the subtly flavoured leaves and the mouthwatering artichoke heart. Originating from the Mediterranean region, artichokes pair brilliantly with butter, lemon and parmesan.
This recipe is about simplicity and easy eating. Don’t be concerned by the use of olive oil with the butter beans, good oil will help you digest pulses and lubricate your joints.
