Ingredients

  • 4 large artichokes, trimmed
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 leek, trimmed, cut in half lengthwise, thoroughly cleaned and thinly sliced (1 1/2 cups)
  • 1 large all-purpose potato, peeled and diced
  • 1 stalk celery, chopped
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 4 cups reduced-sodium beef broth
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • Salt & freshly ground pepper, to taste

Preparation

  1. Cut trimmed artichokes into thin wedges. Heat oil in a large soup pot over high heat. Add the artichokes, leek, potato, celery and bay leaf; sauté until the leek starts to wilt, 3 to 5 minutes. Add broth, and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to low and simmer until potatoes and artichokes are tender, about 30 minutes. Remove from heat and discard bay leaf. Let the soup cool for 5 minutes.
  2. Whisk together lemon juice and egg yolk in a small bowl. Slowly add the egg mixture to soup, stirring constantly. Taste and adjust seasonings with salt and pepper.
