So, we got 3 artichokes from our food co-op basket. I didn’t know how to cook them but we both like them. So, I consulted the internets. We ended up combining a recipe and making our own artichoke concoction. We tried cooking them 3 different ways, but the best was the one where we cut off the stem, tops, and removed the outer leaves. It made for a tender and more flavorful choke. Can you say that?
1 – 1/2 lemon – depending on how much lemon you prefer
2T olive oil
touch of parsley (fresh or dried)
Cut of the stems and 1/3 of the tops of the artichokes. Take of exterior loose leaves. Boil artichokes (halfway submerged) in water for 20 minutes. Melt butter. When artichokes are soft then mix half olive oil/parsley/lemon mixture and pour over the artichokes. Add the rest of the lemon/parsley/oliveoil mix to the butter. Make it so it’s half mix and half butter.
Dip & Enjoy.
