Artichoke Ceviche. On a recent trip to the region of Junín, near a town called Concepción, I drove by field after field of beautiful, ripe artichokes. There were women in the fields harvesting and collecting them. This photograph was taken there. Knowing then that the freshest artichokes would be on offer, I stopped by a roadside restaurant and had a perfect artichoke ceviche – the inspiration for this recipe.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
8 artichoke hearts, quartered
2 small parsnips, peeled and cut into thin batons
2 carrots, peeled and cut into thin batons
2 red onions, finely sliced
a small bunch basil leaves, finely chopped
a few iceberg lettuce leaves, shredded, to serve

For the dressing

Quantity Ingredient
2 tablespoons olive oil
12 limes, juiced
2 medium-heat red chillies, deseeded and finely chopped
salt
freshly ground black pepper

Method

  1. Bring a saucepan of salted water to the boil. Blanch the artichoke hearts and parsnip and carrot batons for 3–4 minutes until just tender, then drain thoroughly and either chill in iced water or cool under running water.
  2. Put the red onion in a large bowl and add the cooled blanched vegetables.
  3. Make the dressing by whisking together the olive oil, lime juice and chilli and season with plenty of salt and pepper. Pour the dressing over the vegetables, sprinkle over the basil leaves and stir very gently to combine.
  4. Serve on a bed of shredded iceberg lettuce.
