How to make it

  • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.
  • Preheat grill to medium-high heat.
  • Trim the stem from each artichoke to 1-inch long, then bend back and snap off dark outer leaves.
  • Cut top inch of artichokes with serrated knife.
  • Using a vegetable peeler, peel dark green areas from stem and base of artichoke.
  • Quarter each artichoke.
  • Using a small, sharp knife, cut out the choke and remove the purple, prickly tipped leaves from the center of each wedge.
  • Place finished artichokes in a large bowl of cold water and squeeze 2 lemons into the water and stir.
  • Continue with remaining artichokes.
  • Once finished, drain the artichokes and place into boiling water and cook until crisp-tender, about 12 minutes.
  • Drain the cooked artichokes and place onto preheated grill.
  • Cook until tender and lightly charred in spots, turning occasionally, about 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, in a medium sized bowl, add remaining lemon juice (1/3 cup) parsley, garlic and salt and pepper, to taste.
  • Gradually drizzle in olive oil.
  • Toss or drizzle the grill artichokes with the garlic/parsley mixture and serve.

    I love artichokes but have always used them in other dishes. This looks so yummy, can't wait to try.

    I use canned artichoke all the time but I have never cooked a fresh artichoke. This may be a good recipe to start.
