Mysterious artichoke: what to cook from a strange fruit

Artichoke is a perennial plant that has edible buds. It is a low-calorie product, which makes it attractive to people who are watching their diet. Artichokes are also known for their special taste and texture.

Artichokes can be cooked in the same way as potatoes - boiled, fried, stewed, baked. If you haven't done so before, we suggest you try cooking this product according to simple recipes.

Boiled artichoke buds. To do this, cut off the top of the artichoke, remove the outer hard leaves, and then place them in boiling salted water for about 20-30 minutes. You can check the readiness of the artichoke by trying to pull out one outer leaf - it should come off easily. After cooking, the artichoke can be used as a main dish or as an addition to other dishes.

Artichokes are often used in dishes such as salads, pizzas, pasta, various sauces and many others. They have many valuable nutritional properties and are considered healthy.
