Directions

For the stock: Combine 6 cups water, the wine, carrots, celery, garlic, onion, bay leaf and bouquet garni in a large pot and bring to boil. Then reduce to a simmer and cook for 30 minutes. Strain and set aside.

For the vegetables: Trim and peel the artichokes to the heart and remove the choke. Drop the artichoke hearts in a bowl of water with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice to prevent oxidation.

Cook the artichoke hearts in the vegetable stock until tender, 6 to 8 minutes. Chill in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

Cut the artichokes into bite-size pieces and toss in a bowl with some salt, pepper, a few drizzles of olive oil, the parsley, red pepper flakes, a little lemon juice, a few pinches sugar and a splash of red wine vinegar.

Cut the tomatoes and marinate with some salt and pepper, a few drizzles of olive oil and a little red wine vinegar.

Heat the balsamic vinegar in a small saucepan and simmer over medium heat until reduced to a syrup. Chill the reduced balsamic vinegar until ready to serve.

Alternate the tomatoes, artichokes, basil leaves and mozzarella on each skewer.

Drizzle a little balsamic reduction over each skewer and season with salt and pepper.
