Steamed Artichoke

We have never had artichoke as a kids and I have never even knew something like this existed. Until just few years ago, when I had it few times in the restaurants. I really loved it, but never thought of making it at home. I somehow always imagined it is pretty hard labor to do it in the house.

Until this month, when I saw them in each supermarket. The beautiful flower like basket got my attention just last week and I bought few of them. Made 2 variations and one I am sharing with you right now. The second baked will come hopefully soon.
