Steamed Artichoke

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.

Steaming is the best way, as it keeps most of the nutrients within.

Artichokes has got variety of health benefits such as:

  • they are packed with antioxidants and phytonutrients
  • they help prevent the cancer especially breast cancer and carcinoma
  • they helps fight cardiovascular diseases
  • they are a part of natural remedies to bring cholesterol to a normal levels
  • they help with detoxification of liver and digestive system
  • they have excellent source of high fiber, which may help in weight reduction
  • they are packed with iron
  • they help with skin health and appearance
