Spring Artichokes with Avocado Hollandaise
Author: 
Recipe Type: Side, Appetizer
 
A simple spring dish with a new avocado-lime hollandaise sauce that is so good as an appetizer or dinner side.
Ingredients
  • 4 artichokes
  • 6 cups water
  • 1.5 tablespoons of minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Pinch of salt
  • Avocado Hollandaise Sauce (see the link above)
  • Hot sauce of your choice
Instructions
  1. Heat the water in a large pan on high until it boils, then add the garlic, olive oil, and the salt.
  2. Cut the stems off the artichokes to a reasonable size. Also cut the tops off the artichokes. Feel free to cut the tips of the pedals off, but it's not required.
  3. Place the artichokes in the boiling water, cover the pot and let them cook for about 35 or until the stems are soft.
  4. Serve with the hollandaise sauce. I added a drop of hot sauce to my dish to give it some color and some extra kick.
