Poached Artichoke


  • 1 artichoke
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp crushed rosemary
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1/4 medium sliced onion
  • 1/4 Lemon sliced in rounds
  • 1/4 cup white wine
  • 1/8 cup water
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • freshly ground pepper


  • Cut the stem off at the base of the artichoke. With a chef’s knife, cut off the top 1/3 or so of the artichoke, so all pointy ends are removed from the top (or you can cut each tip off with scissors, if you prefer).
  • Mix salt, rosemary & minced garlic, and place mixture between layers of leaves.
  • Put remaining ingredients in a deep saucepan and add artichoke. Bring to a simmer, cover, and cook for 45 to 50 minutes, or until leaves are very tender.
