4 for $5


I love artichokes. The store had a sale on them, 4 for $5, so I grabbed four and we've been having them for dinner this week. I remember driving around the farms in Camarillo, CA and seeing hundreds of artichoke plants. I wonder where these came from.

I used to steam them (for about 45 minutes) but have discovered that the Instant Pot does a much better job (high pressure for 17 or 18 minutes). The only thing, in my opinion, that beats this is when I drizzle them with olive oil and toss them on the grill.

Last night, we had these along with some roasted asparagus and a few veggie spring rolls. It was the first meatless dinner we've had in a while. Nice and easy, and quick.
