Ingredients

  • 1 cup dried pea bean
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 12 pearl onions peeled
  • 2 cloves garlic chopped
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 2 cups vegetable stock
  • 1 tablespoon grated lemon rind
  • 8 baby artichokes
  • 1 half lemon
  • 1 cup baby carrot
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh dill
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Method

In bowl, cover beans with 3 times their volume of water; let soak for 4 hours. Drain.

In large saucepan, heat oil over medium-low heat; cook onions, stirring often, until golden, 10 to 15 minutes. Add garlic; cook for 30 seconds or until coloured. Add beans, bay leaves, chicken stock and lemon rind; bring to boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 25 minutes.

Remove outer leaves of artichokes; trim stems and cut away one-quarter of each artichoke at top. Rub cut side of lemon all over artichokes. Cut artichokes into quarters; add to bean mixture along with carrots. Cook, covered, until vegetables and beans are tender, 30 minutes.

Stir in dill, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Discard bay leaves.
