“These steamed artichokes are delicious and light, perfect for an appetizer. Dip the leaves in melted butter or mayonnaise.” - by Kelly
Original recipe yields 2 artichokes
- Cut stem from artichokes and discard, making sure the bottom of each artichoke is flat. Cut top 1 inch (or so) of the artichoke and discard. Snip the thorny ends from each artichoke leaf with a pair of kitchen scissors.
- Fill the bottom of a pot with a couple of inches of water, adding garlic, lemon juice, and bay leaf to the water. Place a steamer basket in the pot, making sure that the water does not flow over the bottom of the steamer basket.
- Place the artichokes in the basket, resting on the flattened bottoms.
- Bring water to a boil, cover the pot, and cook until the leaves can be easily pulled from the artichoke, 20 to 30 minutes.

"My artichokes were large. I pressed a garlic clove into the top of each, squeezed the juice of half a lemon on them and dropped the rind in the pot with the bay leaf, sprinkled each with Kosher salt a..." See morend pepper, and followed the recipe. I melted 2 T butter with a slice of lemon in the MW for each of us to dip; served with oven-roasted chicken thighs and garden tomato salad. Beautiful plate and delicious, too."
