this is my favorite recipe!
for 4 persons:
500gr of artichokes (the heart!),
400gr parboiled rice,
1 tropea onion (in subtle bits),
1l vegetable broth (or bouillon).
in a soup pot (spacious) put the onion, with about 30gr of butter. Not overcook!! the onion must to turn yellow!!
Then put artichokes and cook for 10/15 min. Add some spices (like marjoram or oregano)
Join the rice and toast it.
When it is blond add a ladle of broth and start to stir.
When it dries up, add another ladle..and so forth.. untill will seem like cooked! Then add Parmigiano (turn off the heat), mixing and wait on!!
