Aginares Latheres: Artichokes With Vegetables (Vegan)

READY IN: 2hrs




  • Clean the artichokes by removing the coarse outer leaves and stem, cutting off the top (down to just above the choke) and scooping out the choke with a spoon.
  • Trim off remaining leaves around the sides to leave just the pale colored heart.
  • Rub the artichoke hearts with lemon as soon as each is cleaned and place immediately in a bowl of cold water with half the lemon juice (to prevent them from turning black) and set aside until ready to use.
  • In a large pot, lightly sauté the onions in the oil until they soften.
  • Add carrots and potatoes and continue to sauté for a few minutes more. Add the artichoke hearts, dill, celery, salt, and pepper, and stir.
  • Mix the remaining lemon juice with 1/2 cup of water and flour until smooth, and pour into the pot, stirring until well mixed inches
  • Add the remaining water to cover the vegetables, and bring to a boil.
  • Cover, reduce heat, and cook over low heat for about one hour until potatoes and carrots are done.
  • Serve hot, warm, or at room temperature, with additional lemon on the side.
