About this recipe: Fresh artichokes are sautéed in garlic butter before steaming in this Italian-inspired vegetable dish.


Serves: 4 

  • 2 large globe artichokes
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 30g (1 oz) butter

Prep:15min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:45min 

  1. Rinse artichokes under cold water, and use a sharp knife to cut the top 1/3 off of each one. Trim the stems to about 2cm (3/4 in), and remove the smaller leaves from around the base. Use scissors to remove any remaining leaf tips. Cut each artichoke in half from the bottom to the top, then use a spoon to scrape out the hairy choke. Rinse again to remove any residual hairs.
  2. Melt the butter in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the garlic, and sauté for about 1 minute to flavour the butter. Arrange artichoke halves cut-side down in the frying pan. Sauté for about 5 or 10 minutes, or until lightly browned. Reduce heat to low, and pour in about 60ml of water, cover, and let steam for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the artichokes are tender. A fork should easily pierce the stem.
