Sautéed Lemony Artichokes

Makes 4 servings

Ingredients:

  • 3 artichokes
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Crushed red-pepper flakes
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • Zest and juice from 1 lemon
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh Italian parsley
  • Salt

Directions:

1. Using scissors, trim the artichokes. Cut them in half and scoop out and discard their fuzzy centers. Trim the outside again and cut the center heart into slices. Place in a bowl of water with some lemon juice to prevent discoloration.

2. Bring a saucepan full of water to a simmer over medium heat. Drop in the sliced artichokes and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, or until tender. Drain the artichokes.

3. In a large skillet over medium heat, warm the oil and add the red-pepper flakes to taste. Cook the artichokes, stirring frequently, for 1 to 2 minutes. Mix in the garlic, lemon zest and juice, parsley, and salt to taste. Cook for 5 minutes, or until very tender. Season with additional salt if desired.
