Steamed Artichoke with Garlic Mayo

1 large artichoke
2 Tbsp mayo
1 small garlic clove, grated
1 tsp minced capers
1 squirt of lemon juice

In a small bowl filled with 1-2” of water, place artichoke top down and cover with saran wrap. Microwave for 7 minutes and let sit for 10 minutes. Leaves should easily remove when pulled.

In a small bowl, mix mayo, garlic, capers and lemon juice.

For those of you that don’t know….

To eat, scrape meaty ends of artichoke leaves with your teeth; discard the rest of the leaf. When you get to the heart, scrape out the “hair” with a knife, and enjoy the best part!

Now you know…..

The end.
