Globe Artichoke and Potato Casserole

ingredients

serves: 4
juice of 1 1/2 lemons
4 firm green globe artichokes (avoid limp brown specimens)
125 ml olive oil
1 large onion, chopped
4 spring onions, chopped
600 ml hot water
625 g small whole potatoes, peeled
4 medium sized carrots, scraped and quartered
2 tbsp freshly chopped dill or 1 tbsp dried dill
salt, to taste

method

1. Have a bowl containing cold water and half the lemon juice ready and drop the artichokes in as you prepare them, to prevent them from discolouring.

2. Trim the stalks, leaving about 2.5 cm on the artichoke.

3. Peel the outer leaves until the soft, creamy coloured ones appear.

4. Cut off the top half of these leaves and discard them. Using stainless steel utensils to prevent discoloration, slice each artichoke in two vertically and remove and discard the hairy choke and thorny purple leaves in the middle.

5. Trim the hard green coating from the base and stalk of each artichoke and drop them in the bowl of acidulated water.

6. Heat the oil and sauté the onion and spring onions until they glisten; then add the remaining lemon juice and the hot water.

7. Strain and rinse the artichokes and add them with the other vegetables and salt; cover and cook for 40 minutes, stirring gently once or twice.

8. Add the chopped dill 10 minutes before the end of the cooking time.

9. This dish is better cooked in advance and either reheated or served   la Grecque , that is, at room temperature.
