Grilled Artichokes with Lemon Butter
Cooking these vegetables perfectly on the grill took a bit of heart.
Why This Recipe Works
Artichokes are often steamed, but grilling them brings out their nutty flavor. Parboiling them in a broth with lemon juice, red pepper flakes, and salt ensured that they were completely tender and thoroughly seasoned. Tossing them in extra-virgin olive oil before grilling helped develop a flavorful char. A simple blend of lemon zest and juice, garlic, and butter came together easily in the microwave and was perfect for dipping or drizzling.
