At GreenJinn we're super lucky to have an international team, with people from all over the world 🌎

One thing we all have common? We are FOODIES. We love to give each other cooking tips and we thought why not share them with you too! 🤤

As some of you may know, our founders are Italian, so we're starting off this month's recipes and tips with ITALY 🇮🇹

If you have organised a dinner party and want to impress your friends or family, here is a mouth watering starter for you!

Carciofi Alla Giudia - Crispy Fried Artichokes that are a popular starter in Rome with Roman-Jewish origins! ITALIAN APPROVED 🤌🏻

Keep an eye on the next recipes, you won’t want to miss them 👀 (We're for real, trust us)


  • - Artichokes
  • - Seed oil
  • - Salt & pepper

  1. 1. Clean the artichokes, detach the end of the stem and then remove the leatherier outer part of the remaining stem from the cut part at the base of the artichoke

  2. 2. To get the leaves to open up well, slam the artichoke on a chopping board while holding it by the stem without pressing too hard board while holding it by the stem without pressing too hard

  3. 3. You can help with your hands to widen and open it like a flower

  4. 4. Heat some seed oil in a saucepan, just enough so that only the heads of the artichokes are dipped

  5. 5. Dip the first artichoke (🚨 PLEASE BE CAREFUL OF ANY HOT OIL SPLASHES 🚨)

  6. 6. Take the kitchen tongs and while the artichoke is frying, press the artichoke hand over hand to the bottom, taking it by the stem

  7. 7. It will take about 6-7 minutes to cook. This way the flower will keep its shape. Toward the end of cooking, turn it on its side to allow the stem to cook as well and then drain on frying paper

  8. 8. Repeat the process for the rest of the artichokes and once they’re ready, don't forget to salt them!
