The organic artichoke leaves h'rouss (available in 185g format) are chopped, making them a versatile ingredient to be used in salads, sauces or pizzas. They come from a local variety of Northern Tunisia called Òviollette harvested between mid-February to mid-May. The artichoke leaves are preserved in extra virgin olive oil, which also produced by Moulins Mahjoub. They represent the philosophy of the Moulins Mahjoub organic preserves range which enables the professional and amateur cook to play with any dish by adding a personal twist. We find the artichoke leaves particularly delicious in stews such as a lamb or beef stew. By adding the artichoke shortly before serving, they bring a freshness which exacerbates the contract with the tender cooked meat.
Artichokes are a key ingredients of the Mediterranean cuisine, both on its Northern and Southern shores. They are very easy to use in salads or anti-pasti but can also be cooked in a stew, tagine or roasted with fish or meat as well as in pasta or rice dishes. As with all of the Mahjoub products, they are produced using traditional farming methods with no additives or artificial processes.
