Remarks

You will notice that the sautéed potatoes are only added at the last minute, just before serving. This is to play up the contrast between the creamy artichokes and crunchy potatoes. If you would prefer a softer, more uniform texture, add them at the same time.

For a quicker version, but less economical, you can simply use bought artichoke hearts.

Keeping:

1 or 2 days in the fridge, covered with plastic film.
