  • Serves

    serves 2

In Syria, this simple breakfast dish is usually served as a homely scramble. Adding the artichokes at the last minute keeps the eggs lighter.


  • 3 tbsp. butter
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed
  • 2-3 hearts of medium artichokes, steamed and sliced
  • 4 eggs
  • ¼ cups cream
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Finely chopped parsley


Step 1

Heat 1 tbsp. of the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, 1-2 minutes. Remove garlic and add artichokes. Cook, stirring, for 2 minutes, then transfer to a bowl and keep warm.

Step 2

Wipe out skillet, then add remaining 2 tbsp. butter and melt over medium heat. Beat eggs with cream and 1 tbsp. water. Add eggs to skillet, season with salt and pepper, and cook, folding gently with a spatula, until eggs are set and fluffy, about 2 minutes.

Step 3

Fold in artichokes, then spoon immediately onto warmed plates. Serve garnished with parsley.
