Wild Artichoke Stew Recipe

Hello everyone!!!

Let’s see, where shall I start..hmmmm.   I was at the Farmers Market the other day, and I came across these Wild Artichokes. This is the first time I have ever seen a Wild Artichoke believe it or not.  (As a cook and a Food blogger never even crossed my mine that they existed) 🙂  I was curious so I asked the farmer how would someone go about cleaning them.  You are able to see in the photo that they have very prickly points so cleaning them will most definitely be a challenge.  

I bought a few pieces just to take a photo to show you that there is a variety of shapes and sizes of Artichokes, and thought you might get a kick out of seeing this one.  They have the same taste as the Artichokes we all know.  These little Wild Artichokes are grown in the mountain region of Achaia Greece.  I had help making this Stew, but  I wasn’t able to snap the preparation process, after cleaning the prickly artichokes.  My hands/fingers were seriously hurting.  🙂

Have a good day everyone!!



7 large Artichokes (fresh or frozen0

3 large Carrots (sliced)

2 large Potatoes (cubed)

2 tablespoons of All Purpose Flour

1 Onion (chopped)

1/2 cup Olive Oil

1/4 cup Vegetable Oil


Salt & Pepper

Lemon Juice



A) Sauté onion in oil.

B) Place artichokes into a large pot and cover with water.  Stir for a few minutes and continue to add the potatoes, carrots, and dill.

C) Simmer until a thick.  In a small bowl mix the flour with the lemon juice.  Salt and Pepper and add the mixture into the artichokes, simmer for 1 hour.

This is a delicious, light Vegetarian dish with a tangy taste of lemon.





  1. You know, I've never eaten Artichoke!
  2. They are so cute! And dangerous looking😳
  3. I’ve only ever eaten artichokes one way, and that was the way my neighbour showed me shortly before he passed away. Reading this I thought how he would have loved this. Now, I have a different way to cook them :) Thank you Sophie :)

      Hi sweet friend...I am so sorry to hear about your neighbour. :(
      • He was amazing, and an amazing cook. He loved to eat, and pick on me :) He gave me his secret recipe for his world famous(his words) veggie beef soup. Hubby said he should have marketed it :) At his funeral his kids were shocked that he gave it to me because they said he wouldn’t even give it to them :) He will always live on through that soup :)
