Total time: 
Serves: 3
  • 3 artichokes
  1. Trim ¼ to ⅓ off tops, just enough that artichokes can be set upside-down.
  2. Fill large pot with enough water that base of artichokes can stand in water about ⅓ of the way up, or set artichokes atop a steamer insert in a pan with a shallow level of water.
  3. Place artichokes in pot standing on their tops.
  4. Simmer until cooked, 20-30 minutes if cut in half, 30 minutes or more whole (varies depending on size of artichoke).
  5. Remove from pot, let stand upside-down for a while to drain water and cool.
  6. Cut in half with sharp knife.
  7. With a spoon, remove fuzzy 'choke' and a few of the smallest leaves from the center.
  8. With a knife trim off the toughest leaves on the outside of the artichoke.
  9. Drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with salt.
  10. Grill split side down at 325 for 12 minutes or until the artichokes have your desired degree of grill marks.
  11. Serve as is or with mayonnaise (or tofu mayonnaise for vegan) or melted butter.
