Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 large trimmed* artichokes (1 1/2 lbs.), sliced thinly
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 5 slices toasted ciabatta bread, cut in half diagonally
  • 3/4 cup ricotta
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons finely grated lemon zest
  • 6 basil leaves, thinly sliced

Preparation

  1. 1. Heat 3 tbsp. oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Cook artichoke slices, stirring occasionally, until softened and browned, about 4 minutes. Sprinkle with salt.
  2. 2. Put toasts on a plate and spread each with ricotta, dividing it evenly. Sprinkle with pepper and zest. Spoon some artichokes onto each slice and top with a bit of basil.
  3. *To trim artichokes, snap off thick green outer leaves (about half of them; be ruthless) down to the yellowish core. Halve artichoke crosswise; discard thorny tips. Trim stem to about 1/2 in. and use a vegetable peeler to remove tough outer skin from remaining stem. Halve artichoke lengthwise; use a spoon or the point of a knife to scoop out fuzzy, red-tipped choke. As you work, put trimmed artichokes in cold water mixed with a little lemon juice to prevent oxidation. Set aside until you're ready to cook.
