  • Juice of 2 lemons , divided
  • 12 pearl onions , peeled and left whole
  • 2 medium stalks celery , diced
  • 1 large carrot , peeled and diced
  • 8 large artichokes
  • ½ cup (120 mL) olive oil
  • Kosher or fine sea salt , to taste
  • 4-5 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 4-5 black peppercorns
  • Freshly ground black pepper , to taste
  • Lemon slices , for garnish
  • Chopped fresh parsley and/or thyme , for garnish


  • In a large bowl, combine juice of 1 lemon and 6 cups of water. Put the onions, celery, and carrots into the water and set aside.
  • Cut off the stalks of the artichokes and pull off all the leaves. Dig out and discard the fuzzy center (the choke) from the middle with a spoon. Using a small paring knife, trim into a neat cup shape. Put each one immediately into the water with the other vegetables to prevent them from discoloring.
  • Take the artichokes out of the water and arrange side by side in a large heavy-duty pot. Strain the other vegetables from the bowl of water and add to the pot. Mix the juice of the remaining lemon with the olive oil, 4 cups of water, and 2 teaspoons of salt; pour over the veggies. Add the thyme, bay leaves, peppercorns, and black pepper, to taste. Cover and cook on low gently for about 30-40 minutes or until the artichokes are tender.
  • Let cool slightly. Lift the artichokes out of the pot and place them, hollow side up, on a serving platter. Spoon the vegetables into the middle of the artichokes and around them, and garnish with lemon slices and fresh herbs. Serve immediately.
