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 (omit for parve & use salt and pepper instead)
In a medium skillet, heat olive oil over high heat. Add artichokes and cook 2 minutes to heat through. 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. 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.
