To me, artichokes are the quintessential vegetables of spring. They’re versatile, easy to make (despite what it might seem) and very healthy.
Artichokes supply vitamin C, fiber, potassium, magnesium, antioxidants plus they’re low in calories. Want to know more? Just [lightbox href=”http://youtu.be/JjQyuyRhEaQ”]Click Here[/lightbox] to see how to prepare one.
When I don’t stuff each, individual leaf, I fill the
hollowed-out center with low-fat shrimp or spinach dip, hummus, and even soup!
And that’s another great thing: Artichokes can be as simple or grand as you want them to be. Enjoy!
