Title: Artichoke Frittata
Yield: 4 Servings
Categories: Eggs


6 md Artichokes
2 tb Olive oil
3 Garlic cloves, peeled,
3 sm Red potatoes (about 1/2
-pound), grated
8 Eggs, well beaten
1/2 ts Salt
1 ts Freshly ground black pepper
1 tb Chopped fresh oregano
1 tb Minced fresh chives
1 ts Minced fresh rosemary

This thick and sturdy herbed omelet lets the full flavor of fresh
artichokes shine through.

Prepare artichokes (see recipe for Young Artichokes and Fava Beans
Stewed in Olive Oil) and cut them into 1/2-inch cubes.

Heat the olive oil in a medium-sized, heavy-bottomed skillet over
medium heat. Add the garlic and saute until translucent, 2 to 3
minutes. Reduce heat slightly and add the artichoke cubes; saute
until tender, about 10 minutes, stirring often. Add the grated
potatoes and cook for another 5 minutes. Add the eggs, salt, pepper
and herbs.

To set the eggs, let them cook for 2 or 3 minutes, without stirring,
then lift the set edges and tilt the skillet slightly to let the
uncooked egg run underneath. Repeat until the egg is set.

Serve hot or cold, cut into wedges.

Serves 4.
