Garlic Sautéed Baby Artichokes

Garlic Sautéed Baby Artichokes

Just boil, cut up and sauté. You can make this easily even if it's your first time cooking artichokes. The garlic flavor is irresistible and are great as a drinking snack.

Ingredients: 2 servings

Baby artichokes
Olive oil
2 tablespoons
Salt and pepper
a small amount
Garlic (finely chopped)
about 3 cloves
White wine
to taste


1. Cut the stems and tops off the artichokes, and remove several outer leaves. Cut the sharp tips off the remaining leaves with scissors.
2. Rub a lemon on the cut parts of the artichokes. This prevents discoloring.
3. Bring plenty of water to a boil. Add the artichokes to the boiling water, hold them down to the bottom of the pan with a small lid, and cook for 5 minutes.
4. Cut the cooked artichokes into quarters.
5. Put the olive oil, salt and pepper, and garlic in a frying pan with the artichokes, and sauté for 10 to 15 minutes, taking care not to let them burn.
