I’m very glad I tried this recipe, it’s very easy to be prepare and it was a great gem!


  • 1 cup artichoke heart, cooked ( canned would be fine, and roughly chopped)
  • 1/8 cup raw pine nuts
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 small garlic clove, peeled and minced
  • 1/3 cup parmesan cheese, finely grated
  • coarse salt, a pinch ( just a little since the parmesan is salty, you can always add more salt when finished)
  • fresh ground black pepper, a few grinds
  • 1 -2 teaspoon fresh tarragon leaves, thinly sliced ( use as much as you would like, to taste…I like 1 t.)
