I have not made this in a while, so I think it will make this weekend rotation. It is another very simple soup, with very few ingredients, again the star is the Artichokes.
10 to 12 small Artichokes, remove the tough outer layers, rough chop
2 large white onions, chopped
4 1/2 cup veggie stock, unsalted
4 tablespoons olive oil, plus more for garnishing
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1 clove of garlic, minced
1/4 cup fresh grated parmesan cheese
Salt and Pepper to taste
Italian Parsley for garnish
In a large saucepan over medium heat, melt butter, then whisk in olive oil and add onions and saute until soft. Next, add the artichokes and saute for an additional 5 minutes.
Now add the stock, garlic, salt, and pepper to taste, bring to a boil, reduce and simmer for 40 to 50 minutes, covered.
Remove from heat, let cool for 5 minutes, then puree, strain, and return to the saucepan.
Rewarm, then serve with a garnish of cheese, olive oil, and parsley
