Artichokes with Rosemary Sauce

Four ingredients become an impressive side dish that's great for special get-togethers.


4 servings


4 medium artichokes
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1 teaspoon chopped fresh or 1/4 teaspoon dried rosemary leaves, crushed
1 teaspoon lemon juice


Remove any discolored leaves and the small leaves at base of artichokes. Trim stems even with base of artichokes. Cutting straight across, slice 1 inch off tops and discard tops. Snip off points of remaining leaves with scissors. Rinse artichokes with cold water.

Place steamer basket in 1/2 inch water in 4-quart Dutch oven (water should not touch bottom of basket). Place artichokes in basket. Cover tightly and heat to boiling; reduce heat. Steam 20 to 25 minutes or until bottoms are tender when pierced with knife.

Meanwhile, melt butter; stir in rosemary and lemon juice. Pluck out artichoke leaves one at a time. Dip base of leaf into rosemary mixture.
