Five great ways to prepare the kings of spring
Artichokes fresh from the field are one of the best things about spring in the West. Simply steamed - leaves dipped in butter - they're hard to beat, but here are some of our other favorite ways to enjoy this unlikely-looking treat.
- Sautéed Baby Artichokes
- Creamy Artichoke Soup
- Grilled Artichokes
- Yogurt Dill Dipping Sauce
- Herbed Butter Dipping Sauce
Wine pairings: A glass of chilled Sauvignon Blanc goes perfectly with artichoke dishes.
