DIRECTIONS

  • Trim bottom stalk of artichokes, leaving about 1 inch. Cut off the first couple of inches of the top of the artichoke. If your artichoke is dangerously spikey, or you are serving these to kids/company, you may want to trim the tips of all the remaining leaves with scissors. Rinse the artichokes well, under running water.
  • Put about 2 inches of water in the bottom of a big pot, and place the artichokes top down. Throw in the bay leaf and crushed garlic clove. Cover and bring to a boil, then lower heat so the liquid is just simmering. Steam like this for about 30-45 minutes.
  • Make the dip by putting the minced garlic, margarine, and lemon juice in a microwave safe bowl and heating for 30 seconds. Add the dill, yogurt, and salt & pepper. If you want your sauce thick like this, then you are done. I like my dip a little runnier, so i add a little milk until it is the consistancy that i want. Either way, cover and put in the fridge until the artichokes are ready.
  • Let artichokes cool off for about 10 minutes before serving.
