Ingredients

For the artichokes:

  • 2-4 large artichokes
  • 2 lemons
  • 4 cloves of garlic, minced
  • Kosher salt & ground black pepper
  • Olive oiil

For the vinaigrette:

  • 1 medium clove garlic, minced
  • 1 large shallot, minced
  • Juice from 1 lemon
  • 4 Tbsp. cider vinegar
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 Tbsp. honey
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped basil
  • 2 large roasted red bell peppers, seeded and peeled
  • 1/2 cup olive oil

Instructions

For the grilled artichokes:

  • Fill a large bowl with cold water. Squeeze the juice from one lemon into the water, and throw the rind in too. Then cut the artichokes in half lengthwise, clean out the centers and place halves into the bowl of lemon water to prevent them from turning brown.
  • In a large steamer over salted water, steam artichoke halves for 20-25 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare basting mixture of garlic, juice of the other lemon, and olive oil. Preheat grill.
  • Brush the artichokes with a coating of the garlic dip, and place them on the preheated grill. Grill the artichokes for 5 to 10 minutes, basting with dip and turning frequently, until the tips are a little charred. Serve immediately, or hold at room temperature for up to an hour.

For the vinaigrette:

  • Add peppers to food processor and puree. Stir in garlic, shallot, lemon juice, vinegar, honey, basil and spices; pulse to combine. Slowly drizzle in the olive oil until emulsified.
