Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 1

2 Artichokes
1/2 Lemon
10 Unpeeled garlic cloves
1 1/2 Tablespoon(s) White-wine vinegar
1/4 Teaspoon(s) Dried oregano
1/8 Teaspoon(s) Saffron threads, crumbled
1/4 Teaspoon(s) Sugar
2 Tablespoon(s) Olive oil
1 Tablespoon(s) Minced fresh parsley leaves
Cut off the stems of the artichokes with a stainless-steel knife,
break off the tough outer leaves, and cut off the top fourth of each
artichoke. Snip off the tips of the remaining artichoke leaves with
scissors and rub the cut edges with the lemon half. Arrange the
artichokes upright in a microwave-safe dish, add 1 inch water and the
garlic, and cover the dish tightly with microwave-safe plastic wrap.
Microwave the artichokes at high power (100%) for 15 to 20 minutes, or
until the bases are tender. While the artichokes are cooking, in a
blender blend together 3 tablespoons warm water, the vinegar, the
oregano, the saffron, the sugar, and the oil. Transfer the cooked
artichokes to 2 plates. Peel the garlic, in the blender puree it with
the vinegar mixture until the mixture is smooth, and stir in the
parsley and salt and pepper to taste. Transfer the sauce to a bowl and
serve it with the artichokes. Serves 2. Gourmet April 1990 Converted
