My tip is, find someone who cooks them for you...mothers (or fathers-seems to be one or those ingredients where boys are allowed in the kitchen) of friends of southern European background are good. My dear friend (who I used to share house with) made them whenever they were in season and we all did our bit by really appreciating them!
From memory a pressure cooker was involved.

Hi Evelyn, here is a simple step-by-step procedure on how to prepare and steam an artichoke:

Dipping sauces:
Lemon Butter
3 tablespoons lemon juice, fresh or from concentrate
1 tablespoon vegan butter, like Earth Balance
Salt, to taste

Chipotle Aioli:
1/2 c Vegenaise
1/2 tsp dried Chipotle Pepper
Tiny pinch of salt


Try this, too, if you want to stuff them: http://veganyumyum.com/2007/12/artichokes-

OK people - my goal for 2010 is to make artichokes, maybe stuffed, maybe not.

I need your help. I have no clue where to start. Do you have any sources with step by step prep instructions? Any youtube instructions you like? I bought two artichokes on Sunday because they were 2 for $1, if I can make dinner for 2 people for $3 it would rock!

PS Will need vegan suggestions

Thanks in advance.
