This is so simple and tasty. I love artichokes! Who knew a thistle could be so tasty? I sometimes wonder about the first person to try an artichoke, were they really adventurous or really hungry? What about the first person to eat a lobster? Had to be pretty brave, I’m thinking….
Anyway, try this sometime when you are craving a thistle!
1/4 cup champagne vinegar
1 clove of garlic, chopped
1 t dried basil
1/2 cup olive oil
Steam the artichokes until soft – it takes a while!
I use a pressure cooker to cook mine because otherwise it would take a few hours at this altitude
Blend the rest of the ingredients in a blender
serve warm, it’s a nice snack, appetizer or light lunch…
