With my obsession for pretty food I always end up buying vegetables at the market that look funny – but where I have no idea how to cook them :D
Artichokes are not only funky looking but also taste great. A little garlic and lemon is all that you need. Even more perfect – it is food you are allowed to play with. Once the artichoke is roasted you can pluck out one paddle at the time – dip it into the sauce – and suck off the soft flesh [discard the woodsy part].
Better not be hungry though – there are more fibrous parts than edible flesh. Makes more for a fancy side dish or snack than a whole meal.
