If you cannot find pea greens or pea shoots, substitute with another salad green.

Artichoke and Pea Shoot Salad


For artichoke puree:
1 jar artichoke hearts in oil, drained and oil reserved
Pinch cayenne pepper
Squeeze of lemon juice
3 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon olive oil
3 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon oil from the artichokes

For salad:
3 pounds baby artichokes
3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
1 large bundle of pea greens
1 large bundle of pea shoots
2 ounces parmesan cheese, shredded with a vegetable peeler
1 cup walnuts, toasted
1 teaspoon lemon juice
Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. To make artichoke puree: Roughly chop the artichoke hearts. Stick everything but the oils in a blender and blitz until it's smooth. Keeping the blender running, add the oils in a slow stream until it all binds together.
  2. To make salad: Prepare the artichokes by rinsing, trimming, and quartering them. In a 12-by-18-inch roasting pan, toss artichokes with 2 tablespoons oil, a pinch of salt, and a pinch of pepper until artichokes are lightly coated in oil. Bake in a 450°F oven, stirring occasionally, until artichokes are browned and crisp at the edges and tender when pierced, about 15 minutes.
  3. Spoon artichokes into a bowl, and add lemon juice, remaining 1 tablespoon oil, pea greens, and pea shoots; mix thoroughly. Salt and pepper to taste.
  4. To assemble salad: Use an offset spatula or spoon to spread a few tablespoons of artichoke puree among the plates. Carefully top each plate with artichoke and pea shoot salad. Garnish with parmesan cheese and walnuts. Serve warm.
