If you enjoyed the Crispy Artichoke Chip recipe I posted earlier this week, then I am about to blow your mind. While that recipe can very well stand on its own, it was really meant as a garnish for this one. Seriously, this is the dish for the artichoke connoisseur.
For one, it's a combination of both braised and fried artichokes. And while that's two completely different textures of the same vegetable, they work so very well together. By braising the artichokes, Chef John Toulze really showcases the earthy and sweet flavors found in baby artichokes. And somewhat surprisingly, the artichoke chips are just as flavorful but also very light and airy.
With just a hint of lemon, this dish tastes like summer.
