    Baked artichokes

    Artichokes may not be in your usual weekly rotation, but after taming this spiky wonder with this basic recipe, it's going to become your new favorite vegetable. With a soft, melting interior and crunchy exterior leaves, they are a gorgeous accompaniment to any meal. Serve this quick and healthy treat as an appetizer or side dish.

    10 small fresh artichokes, preferably young
    4 tbsp olive oil (use half for cooking, the other half for baking)
    salt and pepper, to taste
    1 tsp sea salt


    The artichoke is a delicious, beautiful vegetable; it is actually a big flower bud of the thistle family. If you allow artichokes to grow, they will produce gorgeous flowers. The choke turns into pretty purple strings. Young artichokes usually don’t have a choke yet, which makes them easier to handle.
