Artichoke Heart Day
I was able to pick up a real live (actually quite dead) artichoke, now that I’m back in Vancouver, at the nearby Whole Foods
She was a beauty.
I sliced it in half and drizzled it generously with olive oil & lemon. I placed it on a baking sheet and into a preheated 375 degree oven.
It really started to smoke up the apartment after about 20 minutes so I took it out.
I drizzled it with some Balsamic Reduction, sprinkled some salt and pepper and had a few bites.
It looked great…
…but was way under cooked.
I would estimate it needed about double the time. Lesson learned…sorta.
I really didn’t feel compelled to wipe the reduction off and re roast so I just took some nice photos and called it quits on Artichoke Heart Day. They aren’t my favourite & I’m jet lagged af.
