If you want to impress your dinner guests, serve them this fabulous roasted artichoke! It may take a long time in the oven, but with only a couple of minutes of prep, it can be roasting while you prepare your meal, weed the garden or take a nap! And the flavor it develops from roasting is well worth the wait. As you may have noticed by now, roasting is one of our favorite ways to prepare veggies! If you like it steamed or boiled, try it roasted and you may never go back! We served this with a delicious garlic-cilantro-lime aioli that was made in the blender in about 30 seconds!

To eat your artichoke, pull the leaves off, dip the part of the leaf that was attached to the artichoke in your sauce, put it in your mouth, close your teeth on the leaf, and pull outward. The soft, delicious part of the leaf will come off the more fibrous, woody part. Discard the leaf when you have eaten the soft part. Enjoy!
