Artichokes with Browned Garlic and Lemon Dipping Sauce

Artichokes with Browned Garlic and Lemon Dipping Sauce

Fresh artichokes with a dipping sauce are an elegant low-carb indulgence. Since you eat the artichoke piece by piece, you can eat slowly and enjoy the flavor of every bite.

Oxmoor House JANUARY 2005

  • Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 artichoke and 2 tablespoons sauce)

Ingredients

  • 4 large artichokes
  • 2 teaspoons butter or margarine
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (about 1 lemon)
  • 1 tablespoon white wine Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • Dash of ground white pepper

Preparation

1. Wash artichokes by plunging up and down in cold water. Cut off stem ends; trim about 1/2 inch from top of each artichoke. Cut off artichoke stems; remove bottom leaves.

2. Place artichokes, stem ends down, in an 11 x 7-inch baking dish; add water to depth of 1 inch. Cover with heavy-duty plastic wrap, and vent. Microwave at HIGH 10 minutes or until a leaf near the center of each artichoke pulls out easily. Drain. Remove fuzzy choke from center of each artichoke with a spoon.

3. Melt butter in a small saucepan; stir in garlic. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until garlic is lightly browned. Add water and next 4 ingredients; cook just until hot. Serve as a dipping sauce with whole artichokes.
