Artichoke frittata

Yield: 4 servings

Measure Ingredient
6 mediums Artichokes
2 tablespoons Olive oil
3 \N Garlic cloves, peeled, minced
3 smalls Red potatoes (about 1/2 pound), grated
8 \N Eggs, well beaten
½ teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon Chopped fresh oregano
1 tablespoon Minced fresh chives
1 teaspoon Minced fresh rosemary

This thick and sturdy herbed omelet lets the full flavor of fresh artichokes shine through.

Prepare artichokes (see recipe for Young Artichokes and Fava Beans Stewed in Olive Oil) and cut them into ½-inch cubes.

Heat the olive oil in a medium-sized, heavy-bottomed skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and saute until translucent, 2 to 3 minutes. Reduce heat slightly and add the artichoke cubes; saute until tender, about 10 minutes, stirring often. Add the grated potatoes and cook for another 5 minutes. Add the eggs, salt, pepper and herbs.

To set the eggs, let them cook for 2 or 3 minutes, without stirring, then lift the set edges and tilt the skillet slightly to let the uncooked egg run underneath. Repeat until the egg is set.

Serve hot or cold, cut into wedges.

Serves 4.
