I just ate a heart

April 6, 2008

and enjoyed every minute of it.

*gasp* “Did you hear what she said?!”

Never fear, it is just I, Devin, your sly wordbender here. Oy, did that ryhme?

Anyway, the heart in question is the heart of an artichoke, my friends, a most delectable dish.

Pressure Cooker Artichokes

2 -3 medium artichokes, trimmed
1 cup water
2 teaspoons Olive oil
1 bay leaf
1 clove garlic cut in half
1/4 lemon, juiced (I actually used a whole lemon.)
1/2 teaspoon salt (optional)

Wash and trim the sharp points and the stems off the artichoke, then put two or sometimes three on a rack in a pressure cooker. Add the water, bay leaf, a couple of squirts (teaspoons) of olive oil, garlic lemon juice and salt if using. Seal the cooker, let the pressure rise, then lower the light and cook for about 13 minutes. Cool cooker under cold water then serve artichoke with melted butter or whatever else you choose. We like a homemade vinaigrette. (But I like mayonaise. I know, classy.)

No picture of mine to go along with the post…we ate them too fast. 😀
