  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 leek, the white part, finely chopped
  • 5 spring onions, finely chopped
  • 4 carrots, cut in medium slices
  • 3 potatoes, cut in medium cubes
  • 3 cups (850ml) vegetable broth or hot water
  • 2 lemons, the juice
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour (optional)
  • 1 cup (10g) fresh dill, finely chopped

Instructions
 

  • In a large pot, over medium-high heat, add the olive oil until hot.

IF YOU USE FROZEN ARTICHOKES

  • Add artichokes first and stir for 5 minutes. Add onion, leek and spring onions. Stir well for 3 more minutes. Add carrots, potatoes and stir for 5 minutes. Season to taste. Stir carefully.

IF YOU USE FRESH ARTICHOKES

  • Add onion, leek and spring onions and stir for 2-3 minutes until softened and translucent. Add artichokes, carrots and potatoes. Stir for 5 minutes. Season to taste. Stir carefully.
  • Add the flour (optional) and give a final good but gentle stir. Pour carefully lemon juice and hot water or vegetable broth to cover all the ingredients. Season to taste, cover the pot with a lid and reduce the heat to a simmer for 40-45 minutes. Stir occasionally.
  • Turn off the heat and add fresh dill. Stir and set it aside for a few minutes. Drizzle some extra olive oil and serve it hot or at room temperature.
