Roast artichokes and new potatoes with broad beans

Starter Serves 8 1h 10 min
Filling, fresh and healthy, this dish is a great way to combine the contents of a spring veg box. It doesn't matter if you can't get hold of wet garlic – just add some whole unpeeled cloves instead for the taste and rustic look. This pairs well with salmon.

Cook's notes

Artichoke preparation: Pull off the dark outer leaves, working around the artichoke until you are down to the pale green leaves. Then cut off the tops of the remaining leaves and trim the artichokes until no dark green bits are evident. The stem can be trimmed too – just lightly if the artichokes are young, but cut right back if old and tough. At this point, you can remove the hairy choke in the middle with a teaspoon. Once cut, the surfaces will soon brown. This can be avoided by acidulating some water with the juice of a lemon and dunking your prepared artichokes in it prior to cooking.
