Gazpacho

You'll need

  • 8
  • large globe artichokes (see note)
  • 60 ml
  • (¼ cup) olive oil
  • 200 ml
  • extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2
  • garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 2
  • anchovy fillets, coarsely chopped
  • 150 gm
  • dried, coarse rye sourdough breadcrumbs
  • To serve:
  • coarsely chopped flat-leaf parsley
  •  
  • Legume stock
  • 1
  • leek, coarsely chopped
  • 1
  • carrot, coarsely chopped
  • ½
  • large onion, coarsely chopped
  • 125 gm
  • dried chickpeas
  • 1
  • chicken thigh, on the bone

Method

  • 01
  • For legume stock, combine ingredients and 3.75 litres water in a stockpot and bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat to low, skim surface and simmer for 3-4 hours. Strain and discard solids. Makes about 2 litres.
  • 02
  • Peel tough outer leaves from artichokes, trim stems near bases and trim tops, exposing hearts. Warm olive oil in a wide saucepan over medium-high heat, add artichoke hearts and sauté until just golden (3-5 minutes). Add enough legume stock to cover and season to taste with sea salt. Cover with a lid or baking paper and simmer over low-medium heat until a skewer can be pressed easily through the centre (30-45 minutes). Drain and cool.
  • 03
  • Quarter artichoke hearts and set aside. Warm extra-virgin olive oil in a wide saucepan over medium-high heat, add garlic and anchovy and fry until anchovy dissolves (20-30 seconds), add breadcrumbs and stir continuously until crumbs are toasted (3-5 minutes). Add artichokes and cook until lightly fried (4-5 minutes), season to taste with sea salt, scatter with parsley and serve immediately.
Note If fresh artichokes are unavailable, you can use canned artichoke hearts and skip steps 1 and 2.

The legume stock in this recipe is a clean tasting stock ideal for cooking vegetables. The chickpeas give it richness and the chicken some body. It has a similar flavour to many of the legume-based stews found in Spain. Once cooked, the chickpeas can be used in a salad.
