Lemon Studded Artichokes

For a change-of-pace side dish or appetizer, microwave some artichokes. They are flavored with lemon slices and garlic butter, which is great for dipping.


2 servings


2 medium artichokes
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 medium lemon, sliced
10 tablespoons butter, melted
2 cloves garlic, minced


Rinse artichokes well; trim stems. With scissors, snip 1 inch off the tops. Snip the tip end from each leaf. Brush cut edges with the lemon juice. Spread artichokes leave open.

Cut each of the lemon slices into six wedges; place between artichoke leaves. Place artichokes in an 8-inch microwave-safe dish. Combine butter and garlic; pour over artichokes. Cover and microwave on HIGH for 10 to 12 minutes or until artichokes are tender. Let stand for 5 minutes. Serve with garlic butter from the dish.
