How to make this recipe

  1. In a medium saucepan, heat the 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Add the bacon and cook over moderate heat until the fat is rendered, about 3 minutes. Add the onion, carrot and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are slightly softened, about 4 minutes. Add the water, wine, lemon juice, thyme leaves and bay leaf, cover and simmer until the onion and carrot are tender, about 10 minutes.

  2. Add the green beans and artichokes, cover and cook until tender, about 3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Discard the bay leaf. Add the parsley and transfer to bowls. Serve with a drizzle of olive oil.
