The best way to enjoy artichokes is to poach them! This recipe is really fun & flavorful.
- 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.
