Launch into artichokes

Vous au moins, vous ne risquez pas d’être un légume, puisque même un artichaut a du coeur (at least you’ll never be a vegetable — even artichokes have hearts).
~ Amélie

From Tessa Kiros’ “Falling Cloudberries”:
#60 Risotto with Artichokes & Italian Sausage – Page 294

Modifications: I used less ingredients to make it enough risotto for two instead of for four, used warm white wine as well as vegetable broth, and added sliced zucchini.

Verdict: Everything about it was warm, creamy and tasty with the lyrical flavours of thyme, parmesan, vegetable broth and riesling – but I would love to learn how to successfully cook artichokes (interesting first experience cooking them)!

In other news, I finished reading “Notwithstanding” this morning – a smooth, sweet blend of essential truth and creative fiction. I like.

  1. I love risotto and Italian sausage bit am a little embarrassed to admit that I have never eaten a artichoke. How can this be? I’ll have to work on that. Its not “bucket list worthy” but definitely on my list of things to do! :)
