To make the soup, chop an onion and soften it in oil or butter. Add a couple of heaped handfuls of scrubbed artichokes, and enough vegetable stock to cover the mixture. I don't know if it makes much difference, but I cut the artichokes into inch-long chunks to speed things up. Once the artichokes are soft (they almost dissolve) add a handful of chopped parsley and blitz the mixture with one of those whizzers - or a potato masher would probably do the job. If it's too thick, add a bit more water, or maybe some cream if you're really pushing the boat out.
A word of warning - artichokes are delicious, but they do cause flatulence, so this may not be the best dish to impress the girl/ boyfriend's parents, at least not unless you know them quite well already!
