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
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
Bring water to a boil and allow to steam for about 30 minutes (or until outer leaves are tender).
(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)
Number of Servings: 2

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
