The Akoub, its Latin name gundelia tournefortii, is a wild plant of the Asteraceae family that is widespread on the limestone hills; it looks like an asparagus with a taste close to the artichoke.  Only the flower bud and the top of the stem are eaten, the rest is covered with thorns.  Check out this tasty oriental recipe that will melt your heart away!
