Artichokes for lunch

My local fruit and vegetable shop had a whole basket of fresh artichokes, so guess what I am having for lunch today? Yes the look weird to eat, but they are excellent!


  • Boil until the other leaves are soft.
  • Pull the leaves off
  • Bite into the fleshy bits of the leaves and eat (a bit like you would eat an unpeeled roasted clove of garlic)
  • When you get to the inside, scrape the hairs off and eat the heart, which is the best bit.

Great with a vinaigrette or melted butter.
