  • 50g parmesan (or vegetarian alternative), finely grated
  • juice ½ lemon

Method

  1. Put the artichokes, olives, pine nuts, Parmesan and lemon juice into a food processor and whizz to a rough paste. Can be made up to a day ahead and chilled.

If made ahead, bring it to room temperature about an hour before serving to let the flavours develop.
