  • 2 lemon
  • 1 table spoon farina 00
  • Let's proceed with cleaning the cardoons: with a knife or a potato peeler, remove the base, the more woody external ribs, and all the filaments from each stem. Keep the ribs lighter and more tender, removing the leaves and stems that are starting to be hard and bitter. As you clean them, cut them into pieces and immerse them in water and lemon to prevent them from blackening.

  • Once cleaned, boil them in boiling water with a pinch of salt, the juice of 1/2 lemon, 1 tablespoon of flour and mix to avoid forming lumps. The flour and lemon juice will help keep them green. Cook for 20-30 minutes. To tell if they are cooked, just poke them with the tines of a fork. As soon as they are cooked, drain them.

  • In the meantime, prepare a large pan, heat a few tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil, add the chopped garlic and the cooked cardoons. Sauté them over high heat for a few minutes until they brown, being careful not to burn the garlic.

  • Lower the heat, add the chopped cherry tomatoes, mix and finally add the breadcrumbs and chilli pepper. All the ingredients must be well mixed and the breadcrumbs must be slightly toasted. If necessary, add a drizzle of oil during cooking. Serve hot or at room temperature.

The cherry tomatoes can be replaced by anchovies.
