About this recipe: An artichoke dish that comes from my grandmother, all made in a pressure cooker. I didn't use to like artichokes, now I eat nothing else!


Serves: 4 

  • 12 small artichokes, quartered
  • 1 to 2 lemons, halved
  • 6 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 200g bacon, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 carrot, peeled and sliced
  • 200ml white wine vinegar
  • 500ml dry white wine
  • 3 tablespoons anise-flavoured liqueur (like Pernod®)
  • 1 lemon, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons crushed coriander seeds
  • 1 bouquet garni
  • 2 teaspoons caster sugar
  • salt to taste
  • cayenne pepper to taste

Prep:15min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Extra time:30min chilling  ›  Ready in:1hr5min 

  1. Quarter the artichokes and remove any hairy bit in the centre. Immediately rub with lemon juice and keep in a bowl of cold water with lemon juice, to prevent discolouring.
  2. Heat oil in pressure cooker over medium high heat. Cook onion, bacon, garlic and carrot until soft (about 5 minutes).
  3. Add vinegar, wine, anise liqueur, lemon, coriander seeds, bouquet garni and artichokes; season with sugar, salt and cayenne pepper.
  4. Close pressure cooker and cook until whistle blows, then reduce heat and simmer for another 20 minutes. Remove artichokes and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes and serve chilled.
