I was happy to see baby artichokes at Wegmans last night, so I roasted a double batch (24 artichokes) this morning. This is a very easy recipe, and the aioli is a nice, refreshing dip for these. If you're going to go through the process of cleaning up the artichokes, you might as well make a double batch so you have it for more than one meal. Once you take off the tops, stems and outer leaves, there really isn't much left.

Agree that there wasn't much to the artichoke but it was delicious. A lot of work to prepare the artichoke itself. They were so good that they didn't even need the aioli! I will try to make the dip for next time!

These artichokes need to be steamed thoroughly before the 15" in the broiler/roaster. Tough, hard to chew; not friendly. I'd advise anyone to steam before .... otherwise, ugh.
