There are lots of ways to cook artichokes whole-steaming, boiling, roasting, in a slow cooker, in the microwave, but this recipe uses boiling, mostly because you really get a beautiful, creamy texture all the way through, the leaves don’t get tough and dried out, and you’re more assured that it’s cooked all the way through. The garlic & black pepper aioli is perfect for dipping as a replacement for butter. You will love these Artichokes with Garlic and Black Pepper Aioli by Rachel Carr!
