With the summer time and the warmer temperatures, it is nice to treat yourself with yummy dishes that are easy to cook. In “honor” of our much beloved Montelupone Artichoke, today I want to share with you a super easy recipe, with a special ingredient…
The artichokes frittata…an-easy-to-make and nutritious dish!:-)
Frittata can be served warm and cool. It is perfect with an aperitif, as an appetizer or as well as a main or even a side dish. In other words: frittata is welcome anytime!

To make a good artichokes frittata, start by cleaning the artichokes.
You will have to remove the outer leaves of the fresh artichockes. Then fill a bowl with water and some lemon juice. Soak the cleaned artichokes for a few minutes then drain and cut them into very thin slices.
Beat the eggs in a medium bowl. Whisk in some grated parmesan and pecorino cheese, about 1/2 teaspoon salt and freshly ground pepper to taste.
Add the artichokes and chopped parsley. Pour in the egg mixture. Swirl the pan to distribute the eggs and filling evenly over the surface.
Shake the pan gently, tilting it slightly with one hand while lifting up the edges of the omelet with a spatula in your other hand, so that the eggs run underneath during the few minutes of cooking.
Cook in a covered pan over low heat for about 15 minutes shaking the pan gently every once in a while. From time to time, remove the lid and loosen the bottom of the omelet with a wooden spatula, tilting the pan so that the bottom doesn’t burn. Instead it should turn a deep golden brown. Then flip the frittata and continue cooking without lid for another 10 minutes.
Frittata can be stored in the fridge for up to two days.
