Ingredients

  • 1 large artichoke
  • 3 tablespoons salsa

Directions

Cut the stem off the artichoke and remove the small, tough leaves at the base. Slice an inch off the top of the artichoke and, if you like, trim the tips of the leaves with kitchen shears (if you've got 'em).

Place the artichoke in a large microwave-safe bowl, base down, and add about 1/2 inch of water to the bowl. Cover it and microwave for 6 to 8 minutes. Let it stand for 1 to 2 minutes before uncovering. The leaves should detach easily from the artichoke. Drain the water and allow it to cool slightly.

Serve your steamed 'choke with salsa. Here's the 1-2-3 on how to eat it:

1. Pull off a leaf and dip the base in salsa.

2. Place the base in your mouth, dip side up, and gently close your teeth around it.

3. Scrape it along your top teeth to consume the soft, delicious part (YUM!), and then discard the leaf.

Now repeat! And when all the leaves are gone, scoop out and discard the thistle-like choke, and enjoy the artichoke bottom (the BEST part)!
