Ingredients

For the artichokes

  • 3 large artichokes or 6 baby artichokes, trimmed and cleaned
  • 1/4 extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1/4 balsamic vinegar

For the garlic dip

  • 1 plain nonfat yogurt
  • clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • Pepper, to taste
  • 1 Teaspoon raw brown sugar
  • 1/4 Cup nonfat sour cream

Directions

For the artichokes

Cover the bottom of a large pot with an inch of water and place the artichokes in the pot. Bring water to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer, cover, and cook until artichokes are par-cooked. When done, remove from pot and allow to cool. Split in half lengthwise and remove hairy choke. Set aside.

Prepare marinade by whisking all the other ingredients in a bowl. Dip each artichoke half into the marinade and then place cut side down in a 9” x 13” baking dish. After all have been dipped, pour remaining marinade over them, cover, and allow to sit in the refrigerator for 2 hours to overnight.

Place artichokes on medium-hot grill. Cook for about 5-10 minutes on each side to create grill marks. Serve warm with Garlic Dip

For the garlic dip

Whisk together and chill until served.

Grill Shopping Tip

Think twice before buying a thicker piece of meat; a 2-inch thick steak takes four times (not twice) as long as 1-inch thick steak to cook.

Grill Cooking Tip

If you're cooking something that's been marinated, make sure to pat the item dry before it hits the grill. Any sugar in the marinade will burn.
