A great way to celebrate the onset of spring, these puff pastries encase a tapenade-like paste made with artichokes, cheese, parsley, garlic and tomatoes. Don't be intimidated by preparing these thistles — simply slice off the tops, remove the small petals at the base, cut the tips of the remaining petals and cut off the excess stem before boiling them. Artichokes are at their peak from March through May, but you can go ahead a swap out water-packed, canned ones any time of year.

Ingredients

  • 4 artichokes
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 50 grams parmesan cheese (grated)
  • 1 bunch parsley (chopped)
  • 1 garlic clove (peeled and minced)
  • 120 milliliters extra-virgin olive oil
  • 5 cherry tomatoes (dried)
  • 1 roll (ready-made puff pastry)

Directions

  1. Cook the artichokes in boiling water with a drop of lemon juice until soft and tender.
  2. Add to a blender along with the cheese, parsley, garlic, oil, and tomatoes. Grind into a paste.
  3. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
  4. Unroll the pastry, spread with the paste, and cut into diamond shapes.
  5. Place on a parchment paper-lined baking tray and bake for 13 minutes.

These puffs made a fine addition to our last office party. I made a batch according to the recipe and two others, one with chopped spinach and another with bacon bits in place of the artichokes. They were a quick grab and go that didn’t compromise flavor with lack of time!
