Type: Vegetables
Courses: Side dish
Serves: 6 people

Recipe Ingredients

1 3/4 lbs 794g / 28ozMedium artichokes = (or 2 1/4 lbs baby artichokes)
12   Green onions, white part only - in one piece, Roots removed
2 tablespoons 30mlButter
1/2 teaspoon 2.5mlSalt
1/2 cup 118mlWater
1/4 lb 113g / 4ozSugar snap peas - stringed
1 tablespoon 15mlLemon juice
1 tablespoon 15mlMinced parsley
1 teaspoon 5mlTarragon leaves

Recipe Instructions

Trim the artichokes. If using mediums, quarter them lengthwise. Place them in a bowl of acidulated water (water with a little vinegar, lemon or lime juice) to prevent discoloration.

Cook the artichokes, green onions, butter, salt and water over medium heat in a large covered skillet until the artichokes are tender, about 15 minutes. Shake the pan from time to time to stir the contents. If necessary, add a little more water to keep the bottom covered.

When the artichokes are easily pierced with a knife, remove the lid and add the sugar snap peas. Cover and cook until the peas are just tender, about 3 minutes. Remove the lid, raise the heat to high and cook, stirring until only a thin coating of liquid remains on the bottom of the pan, about 3 minutes.  Stir in the lemon juice, parsley and tarragon and heat through. Serve warm.
