I love artichokes but hate cooking them on the stove, as they take so long and it seems so messy. This is a faster and cleaner way to do it.
- Trim and wash the artichoke as usual. Place in a covered microwave safe container with a steam vent. Add water or broth and sprinkle with seasoning if desired. A light dusting of salt, pepper and garlic powder between the layers work well.
- Microwave the artichoke on high for 8-10 mins rotating every 2 minutes.
This method works great! We always used a pressure cooker, but this works just as well and tastes the same. I put mine in a bowl with some water and cover with plastic wrap. Yay! An easier way to make artichokes!
This worked great and was so much easier and faster!
