Baby Artichoke Gratin

Baby Artichoke Gratin
Chef Camille Henry, Whole Foods Market

Serves 6

Ingredients:

8 baby artichokes
4 Tbsp. olive oil (divided)
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tsp. finely shredded lemon zest
1 cup dry white wine
3 Tbsp. fresh thyme
½ cup bread crumbs
¾ cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
Salt and fresh cracked black pepper, to taste

Preparation:

Trim stems from baby artichokes and cut off leaf tops where green meets yellow. Remove outer leaves leaving pale inner petals. Halve and cook, covered in a large amount of boiling water for 15 minutes, or until tender.

Butter a 2 quart gratin or baking dish. In a sauté pan, heat 2 Tbsp. olive oil over medium heat. Add artichokes, garlic, lemon zest, and thyme and cook 1 minute. Add wine and bring to a boil. Reduce by half, about 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

In a small bowl combine bread crumbs and parmesan. Drizzle remaining 2 Tbsp. olive oil over crumb mixture and toss until the crumbs have absorbed all of the oil. Set aside.

Transfer artichoke mixture to prepared dish.  Sprinkle with topping and bake 20-30 minutes in a 350 degree oven, or until cheese is melted and top is golden.
