Time: About 25 minutes | Serves 4
Note: Adapted from "Larousse Gastronomique," 1961 edition.
  • 12 baby purple artichokes
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
  • 1 1/4 cups small peas, fresh is best, but frozen and defrosted works fine
  • 2 cups thinly sliced romaine lettuce hearts
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar

Step 1Trim the artichokes (peel off the tough outer leaves and trim the stems) and put them in a saute pan with 2 tablespoons of butter over medium heat.

Step 2Add the peas and lettuce, the salt and sugar and 3 tablespoons water; cover and simmer gently over medium-low heat for 15 minutes, until artichokes are tender.

Step 3Add the remaining tablespoon of fresh butter and serve immediately.
