  • Heat a large pot over medium-low heat and add the olive oil and butter. Add the onions and garlic. Cook, stirring often, until the onions are translucent, about 6 to 8 minutes. Stir in the artichoke hearts and cook for another 5 minutes.
  • Add the vegetable stock and bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer the soup until the artichokes are very tender, about 15 to 20 minutes. They will begin to fall apart and almost melt into the soup.
  • Very carefully transfer the soup to a blender (place a towel on top!) and blend until smooth. Pour the soup back into the pot.
  • Stir the cream and crème fraiche into the soup. Bring the mixture to a simmer and let it cook for about 30 minutes – it will reduce a bit. Taste the soup and season it with more salt and pepper if needed. If it tastes too briney, you can stir in a bit more cream or crème fraiche (I’d go with ¼ cup).
  • Serve the soup with a toast baguette slice on top. Add a grilled artichoke heart. Place a lemon wedge on the side for spritzing!
