7-minute Artichoke


This recipe is a quick and easy way to make a yummy artichoke.  Take artichoke.  Cut off stem.  Place artichoke in a bowl with about an inch or 2 of water in the bottom.  Cover with plastic wrap, a plate or another bowl.  Microwave for 7 minutes.  In the last 30 to 45 seconds, stop microwave and add a pyrex dish of earth balance.  This will be what you dip the artichoke in.  When pulling out artichoke, please handle with care and avoid steam burns.  DO NOT EAT THE SPIKEY LEAF PART! ;o)  But you can eat the inner ends of the leaf by scraping them off with your teeth.  So yummy and fun!  As you work your way in, when you get to the center, scrape of the furry looking stuff and get to the heart.  This is the best part!  Dip in drawn butter, and enjoy.


About Living Well

I am a vegan who loves food and loves life. Why am I vegan? Vegan living seemed to be a holistic way to live. Choosing to live as a vegan is helping me to live more environmentally conscious, more ethically, and more healthy. That said, I still wanted to be able to have foods that I loved. This site will be a place that I share ideas on living well and share vegan recipes. Some recipes are naturally vegan; other recipes I will take and veganize them. My influences in cooking are from my Granny (who is now 96 years old) who taught me how to make homemade buttermilk biscuits, syrup cookies, okra, and other southern comfort favorites; my mom, who knows how to host, and from living in places like London, Spain, and Costa Rica. When I am not cooking I am a professional artist. Cooking is just one more way I get to be creative. May these recipes inspire you, and may they always be delicious! P.S.
