Artichokes in the Turkish way

In Turkish, this dish is called "Zeytinyağlı Enginar", which would literally mean "Artichokes in olive oil". I have already mentioned that the Turks have a special branch in the kitchen called “olive oil dishes” and these are actually our “cold appetizers” without meat. In this way, you can serve artichokes as a cold appetizer, light main course or side dish, and I love it the most with fish :)

Preparation steps

  • In a deep frying pan, arrange the cleaned artichokes in the shape of saucers on 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Squeeze lemon juice evenly on them, on each saucer. Finely chop the onion and arrange it in the artichokes. Boil the carrots, potatoes and peas in water, drain and arrange on the onion. .
  • Add one cup of boiled water. Season, sauté again a little olive oil over them and cook over medium heat for about 30 mins.
  • Be careful that your artichokes do not overcook because then they will fall apart. Gently remove the artichokes from the pan and serve on a plate.
