I'm always shocked when people say they don't like fresh artichokes. They are so underrated. I think it's because they look difficult to cook. During my childhood in France, I enjoyed a very simple presentation that Maman would often serve us when artichokes were in season. She would boil then grill the artichokes so that the hearts were soft and creamy.
Artichokes prepared this way taste great with some sort of dressing. This particular one is made the way Maman used to, using vinegar, mustard and olive oil. To add a little twist, I "stuffed" a mixture of green olives and parsley into the artichokes. I served the finished artichokes with braised chicken as a side dish. Eating artichokes can be a little messy but the meal tasted heavenly. The dish was very tasty while still being healthy. It doesn't take too long to prepare and you're in for a special treat!
