Italian love artichoke, stuff it with cheese and breadcrumbs to steam it. It does take a lot of time to do it. My mum has told me artichoke is very good for health, especially for our liver. So the more time-saving recipe is boiling it with some chickpeas and beans. Then we can enjoy this plant in a healthy way with olive oil and balsamic vinegar and chickpeas soup.

I never saw artichoke plant. Fortunately, my mother-in-law has put 1 in the garden and produce 1 artichoke per year. After 15 years +, finally it wakes up. This year, we have 15 artichokes, it seems more to come, very excited.

Nothing happen

First artichoke is coming!!
