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.
