This seems like such a dorky post. How to steam whole artichokes? You throw ‘em in a pot with steamy boiling water!
Hear me out though. There are some very simple steps of preparation that make the finished ‘choke much prettier, tastier, and easier to eat.
This post will walk you through step-by-step on how to prepare your artichokes for steaming. Once you have this down, the possibilities are endless. They can be steamed with herbs, spices, etc. This method of preparation will work if you plan on baking your whole artichokes as well ;).
Let’s get started:
1. Like most vegetables, begin by washing the artichokes under cold water.
6. Trim the thorny tips of the petals with kitchen shears.
8. Cover and let simmer for 30 minutes. You’ll know when they are done when a knife can be inserted into the base with no resistance.
9. Voila! Enjoy your ‘chokes!
