Greek Artichokes Lemonato
1 small onion, diced
2/3 cup fresh dill, chopped
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
Salt and Pepper to taste
To prepare the artichokes, cut off stems and remove the hard outer leaves. Cut in quarters and scoop out the hairy, insides. Cut the top off to remove the upper thorn. Soak in a bowl of water with the juice of one lemon.
Meanwhile, sauté the onions in the olive oil until translucent.
Add the artichokes with about a 2/3 – 1 cup of the lemon water and cover. Simmer for about 5 minutes.
Add the dill, and simmer, uncovered, until most of the water evaporated.
Add the remaining lemon juice.
Season with salt and pepper.
