Steamed Artichoke

Submitted by: KNACKERED_KITTY

Introduction

A recipe I found online @ www.elise.com. Reprinted without permission. A recipe I found online @ www.elise.com. Reprinted without permission.
Number of Servings: 2

Ingredients

    2 medium artichokes
    1 bay leaf (or 1 tbsp crumbled)
    A wedge of lemon
    1 clove garlic
    A couple inches of water in a pan

Directions

To prep the artichoke - WASH FIRST! Then cut approx 3/4's an inch off the top of the artichoke and cut the stem close to the butt of the artichoke. I also trim the pointy parts of the outside leaves.

Place an inch or so of water in a large pot.

Add the garlic clove, the bay leaf and the lemon wedge directly to the water

Place steaming basket over the water


Place artichoke in basket

Cover

Bring water to a boil and allow to steam for about 30 minutes (or until outer leaves are tender).

Enjoy

(Try mixing a little balsamic vinegar with light mayo, or red cide vinegar with light mayo, or red wine vinegar with light mayo... all are tasty in their own way. A little dip goes a long way! Nutritional info determined without dip)

  • I trusted this method more than the microwave option. The amount of time was closer to reality than other recipes mentioning steaming. It would help to explain what composes the heart, and that when we eat the leaf we should scrape the flesh off with our teeth and throw the fibrous part away. - 9/1/12
