1/2 cupWhole or 2% Milk
1Large Onion, thinly sliced
2Baby Arthicokes, tough outer leaves removed, stem peeled, halved and thinly sliced
2 clovesGarlic, thinly sliced
1Yellow Potato, very thinly sliced (use a mandolin or vegetable peeler)
1/4 cupGruyere (or any cheese), grated
1/4 cupCherry Tomatoes, thinly sliced
1 tspFresh or Dried Thyme
2 tbspChives, finely chopped
1 tbsp + 1/2 tsp + 1 tspOlive Oil
To TasteSea Salt and Freshly Ground Black Pepper


  1. ​Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Add 1/2 tsp of olive oil to a pie dish and grease it.
  3. Take your thin potato slices and toss them in 1 tsp of olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper. Layer them flat in the pie dish until they cover the bottom and halfway up the sides of the dish. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes until lightly golden brown. The edges of the potato slices will be darker, that’s ok.
  4. Add 1 tbsp of olive oil to a large sauté pan over medium high heat. Add your sliced onion and garlic and a pinch of salt. Stir well and then cover and cook for 5 minutes.
  5. Add your artichokes and thyme to the pan, cover again and continue to cook for another 5 minutes. Remove the cover and cook for another 5 minutes. Allow mixture to cool.
  6. In a bowl mix eggs well with milk. Add onion and artichoke, cheese and chives. Pour mixture into the potato crust, top with sliced tomatoes and place back into the oven.
  7. Reduce the heat to 350 degrees F and cook for about 25 minutes or until the mixture is set. Allow to cool, slice it up and enjoy.


  • ​Onions are a member of the allium family, which also includes garlic, chives and leeks. These foods contain sulfur compounds. In cell studies, these sulfur compounds have been shown to counteract the harmful effect of cancer-causing chemicals before they lead to cancer. In laboratory studies, sulfur compounds also caused cancer cells to self-destruct.
  • Onions contain inulin, a fibre that supports a healthy balance of good bacteria in the colon. This is important for a strong immune system and may help reduce colorectal cancer risk.
  • Artichokes are another natural source of inulin. One large artichoke has 9 grams of fibre, which helps to control blood sugar levels.  A large artichoke also contains 25% of the magnesium and 30% of the vitamin C most people need in a day. Magnesium helps control blood sugar and blood pressure and is needed for healthy bones. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that boosts the immune system to help fight off illness and infection.
