Whole Artichokes with Stem Romana Style in Olive Oil

These elegant long stemmed artichokes are pretty and big. You, of course, could cut them up and make a recipe … though you could do the same with Carciofi alla Romana (One of the most famous artichoke recipes) using artichoke hearts without the stem.

Instead, think beauty. Lay just one artichoke down gently on a plate. Dress it up with some fresh mint and parsley leaves ... or not.

Gently slice it with a sharp paring knife and eat it one enjoyable piece at a time. Fork it for your first bite.

The result is a bite filled with flavor and a wonderful mouth-feel. The bite is not-too-soft, but tender, with just the right resistance and a gentle artichoke-y crunch. The leaves and the heart have their own bite and marry well together. Unlike the grocery artichoke hearts that you get preserved in brine, there is no mushy-ness here, and the leaves are soft enough to easily chew - at least 99-precent of the time.

The long stem is just an extension of all the joy that a Romana style Artichoke heart has. It is, all on its own, an appetizer you could serve at suave table for one. Or even more …

PLUS, artichoke hearts are good for you! I eat 1 to 2 a day -- keeps those gall bladder spasms away. Like a charm! Plus, I'm getting one of my daily servings of veggies. Perfect!
