What would you say if I told you that you could eat artichokes without having to remove their leaves?
Well, that’s exactly what happened when I tried this recipe from my friend, Chef Tanya Holland.
The result was amazing!
I love artichokes because they are such a versatile vegetable.
They taste great raw or cooked, and they are packed full of fiber, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and other nutrients.
Artichokes also contain a compound called cynarin, which helps lower cholesterol levels.
This dip is delicious served warm, at room temperature, or even cold.
If you want to serve it hot, you can add some extra heat by adding a little cayenne pepper
