Oven Roasted Artichokes

Choosing the right artichokes is the most important step in this recipe. Look for artichokes that are firm and have a tight leaf formation. Leaves should “squeak” when you press the leaves together in your hands. Also purchase artichokes with a stem attached, another sign of freshness.

This “superfood” contains polyphenols, disease-fighting compounds, also antioxidants, vitamins C and K, magnesium, potassium, and folate. They are elegant yet so simple to prepare. So along with being healthful, they make a beautiful appetizer for guests or a special vegetable side for a family dinner.
