The first time we posted about boiled artichokes, we were (very) new to blogging, (very) new to food-photography, and concerned about getting fat…so we dipped the leaves into olive oil. Bor-ING. This is much more lovely, tasty, and yes, unhealthy. So good.
2 large beautiful artichokes (above) and 2 delicious dipping options (below)
Mustard-Worcestershire dipping sauce: combine the following ingredients using a whisk. Dip, and enjoy.
- 1 lemon, juiced
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- 3/4 cup mayonnaise
- 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
- 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
- Tabasco sauce (to taste)
Second “dip” = melted butter with garlic and herbs. Melt the butter in a saucepan, add the other ingredients, stir, and enjoy.
- 1/2 stick butter
- 1 teaspoon herbs (just use your favorite – we used an italian herb blend)
- 1 clove garlic, minced
