Artichokes require more effort to prepare and consume than other vegetables, and their leaves feature thorny points that must be removed before eating. But these delicious, high-fiber vegetables offer significant health advantages and should be a regular part of your supper menu. Artichokes come in various ways: fresh, tinned, marinated, and incredibly nutrient-dense.
The artichokes sold at supermarkets and farmers’ markets are spherical and have prickly leaves. Artichokes are a wonderful complement to dips and sauces when steamed because of their soft texture and sweet, earthy flavor, but they are also the ideal standalone snack.
