Method

  1. Heat the grill to high. Cut each of the sourdough slices in half diagonally. Brush all 4 halves with 3 tbsp of the oil from the jar of artichokes. Place under the grill for 1 min each side until golden and crisp. Keep warm.
  2. Put the artichokes in a small saucepan (reserve the oil) with the lemon juice, half the lemon zest, the vinegar, mint and parsley and heat over a gentle heat for 3-4 mins until hot. Remove from the heat and spoon half into a small bowl; use a stick blender to lightly blend to a purée. Stir the artichokes and purée together.
  3. Spoon the artichoke mixture over the warm toasts. Place each on a serving plate. Put the rocket in a bowl with the reserved artichoke oil and toss well to coat. Scatter over the top of the toasts with the remaining lemon zest.
