Artichoke pie

Artichoke pie

Grandma Lina loved being in the kitchen and preparing tasty dishes that reminded her of her land, Liguria, a region in north of Italy in front of a wonderful blue sea. In her hands every vegetable became something delicious. Like the artichokes, which make up the filling of this genuine, simple and tasty savory pie, prepared according to the recipe that has been handed down for generations and which is still kept today in one of grandmother's notebooks, a little damaged by time. The result is something delicious and healthy, like everything that is prepared with the ingredients that the earth offers. The cake is made with unrefined flours and extra virgin olive oil, the artichokes are rich in fiber, especially inulin, which promotes the health of the intestinal microbiota, thus strengthening our natural defenses!

Add the artichokes, season with salt and pepper and cook for a few minutes. Pour in the broth and cook for half an hour. In another pan, cook the peas for a few minutes in a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil. In a large bowl, pour the artichokes, peas, whole eggs and plenty of Parmesan, mix.

Preparation of the cake
