Artichokes for supper

Last weekend I bought two artichokes for $1.99 each from the green grocer on Beaufort Street, but didn't get around to cooking them during the week. Tonight I prepared them for a late supper.

The tops of the artichokes were sawn off and the bulbs boiled and steamed in water flavoured with a slice of lemon, a clove of garlic and a couple of bay leaves. Once tender and while still warm, we peeled off the leaves and dipped them in whole egg mayonnaise seasoned with lemon zest.

Twenty minutes later our plates were a mountain of discarded leaves but our bellies were full.
