Steamed Artichoke

 

Ingredients:

 

Produce

5 whole artichokes 

2 cloves of garlic

2 lemon

Oils and Vinegars

Extra version olive oil

Baking and Spices

¼ tsp black pepper, ground

½ tsp salt

 

How to make it:

  • Wash the artichoke under cold water, cut off the stems close to the base and cut off the lower petals that are small and tough.

  • Place the artichokes in water, cover and simmer for 15 minutes.

  • To make the dressing, mash the garlic, add the juice of two lemons, add an equal amount of the extra version olive oil, then salt and pepper.

 

Extras:

  • To eat, pull off a leaf, dip the end in the garlic/lemon sauce, and scrape the meat off the tender end with your front teeth. When you reach the center cone of purple prickly leavs, remove with a sharp knife, and enjoy the best part of the artichoke - the artichoke heart.
