Artichokes Pie (other recipe from my mom) (Pie de alcachofas de mi mama)




With Esperanza (my daughter) we have been remembering my mom with some of her recipes that are legendary, really delicious.
Esperanza made  the other day my mom scones recipe for her friends and recently I made Artichoke Pie one of our favorite recipes .
Almost everything I learned about cooking was  with my mom. 
She  not only cook fantastic, she also did cooking classes for many years when there were no food  blogs.

Anyway ,  is wonderful  remember people  you love for the food they  made and the love they  put into it.

I made this recipe at the beginning of my blog but I  review the recipe and post again with pleasure.

thanks to all !!






Artichokes pie

3 tablespoons vegetal oil

1/2 teaspoon grated nutmeg
3 tablespoons parmesan grated cheese
4 eggs 
salt

Method

Crust

Over a lightly floured surface   put the flour and salt and add the butter making crumbs with your fingers. Slowly add the milk  and knead by a while to form a ball.
Wrap the pastry and let for 30 minutes to room temperature.
Preheat oven to 180°C.
Then roll out two thirds of the pastry and place over a greased round or oval pyrex or pan.Reserve.

Filling with  artichoke mix ( you can make first and reserve) and roll the remained pastry and cover like a pie.
Brush the pie with a mix of 1 yolk and milk.
Bake at oven by 30 minutes or until is golden brown .
Let chill by a while before serving.

Filling

In a large skillet put the oil and heat to medium heat  and the flour and mix adding the milk  (like a bechamel sauce).
When begin to thick  add the artichoke paste ( mashed  with a fork), mix well and finally add the eggs one for one. 
Add the parmesan cheese, salt and nutmeg ,   cook by two or three minutes and filling the pie with this paste.

If you use fresh artichokes is better for you first cooking  them  and later  take out the food with a teaspoon  the day before.
I make it   and save all in a tupper or bowl in the fridge.

  9. Gloria, Your artichoke pie sounds very nice. It's sort of an artichoke quiche and it would make a good breakfast or even a side dish with dinner. Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

    1. really ? why not dear David ? Artichokes are delicious and east to make, I mean you can eat only boiled and when are ready with some mayo.

    2. When I was growing up, my mother never served them to me. Not even once. And frankly, who named artichokes, anyway? What kind of person gives a kind of food a name that includes the word "choke?"

    3. oh well artichokes is in english, and are wonderful! in spanish is alcachofas .
