Avocado Puree:
1 or 2 ripe avocado, mashed
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

2-3 tbsp pine nuts, toasted

Place artichokes, olive oil, sugar, water and salt in a medium shallow pan. Cover and cook until the artichokes are tender at low heat. Do not open the lid. Let them cool down.

Meanwhile, mix all the avocado puree ingredients in a bowl with a spoon.

Then place the artichokes on a serving platter. Heap the artichokes with the filling. Drizzle some olive oil and garnish with toasted pine nuts. Serve at room temperature or chilled.
