Artichoke & Herby Mustard Vinaigrette

Clean your artichokes by removing all firm outside leafs and hard tops. Cut artichoke in half and scrape out furry choke.

Rub the artichoke with lemon so that it does not oxidize and turn brown

In a medium saucepan add 2 inches of water, bay leaf, garlic and ½ lemon.

Bring to a boil and place steamer basket on top with artichoke halves.

Steam for 15-20 minutes or until tender

While artichokes are steaming heat your grill

When artichokes are finished steaming remove from saucepan and brush with olive oil

Place cut side down on hot grill and sear on all sides until char marks are present.

Remove from grill, drizzle with herby mustard vinaigrette and serve immediately.
