Yield: 2-4 Artichokes
- 2-4 artichokes
- 1/4 cup organic margarine
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- pepper to taste
Wash artichokes, then trim the stems and remove the loose outer leaves. Cut off 1 inch from each of the artichoke tops and then cut of the sharp tips of each leaf, brushing the cut edges with lemon juice. Fill a kettle with salted water and bring it to a boil over a high heat. Once boiling, reduce heat to medium, add artichokes, and simmer for 20-30 minutes, until the leaf pulls easily out of the artichoke.
While the artichokes are simmering, prepare the lemon margarine sauce. Melt the margarine over medium-high heat, then stir in chopped parsley and lemon juice. Add a bit of pepper to taste.
Serve the artichokes with margarine sauce for dipping. This would go great with white wine or lemonade!
