Scale

Ingredients

  • 3 large globe artichokes

  • 1 small shallot, thinly sliced

For the Vinaigrette 

  • Same 6 garlic cloves roasted earlier with the artichoke (see above ingredients)
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh dill
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon ¬†juice
  • 1 tsp honey
  • Salt and Black Pepper

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. To clean artichokes, first, cut off the stem/stalk. Peel off the tough outer layers by hand. When you reach the softer layers, use a serrated knife to cut off about 3/4 inches from the top. Now, cut artichoke in half length-wise. Then, using a spoon, remove the fuzzy choke on the inside.artichoke. One artichoke halved and cleaned and two whole artichokes next to it
  3. As you clean the inside of each artichoke half, immediately add 1/2 tsp lemon juice to cover the surface to prevent the artichoke from discoloring.
  4. On a large baking sheet, place each artichoke half in a piece of lightly-oiled foil paper that is large enough to fold around.
  5. Season artichokes with salt and pepper, and nestle 1 garlic clove in the center of each artichoke half. Drizzle generously with quality olive oil (it’s okay if some of the olive oil pools in the center or overflows onto the foil). Close the foil around artichokes.

  8. In the bowl of a small food processor, add the roasted garlic with the remaining vinaigrette ingredients. Pulse until smooth.
  9. Remove the artichokes from foil. Arrange on a serving platter, generously drizzle the roasted garlic-dill vinaigrette. Top with shallots, capers and crumbled feta cheese. Enjoy!
