Artichokes are a member of the thistle family and the edible portions are actually the buds before they go to bloom. I always thought they looked like a weed, and they kinda are. But very tasty none-the-less.
This recipe literally takes only a couple minutes to prepare and it’s a great source of deliciousness without the calories. This recipe makes 2 servings (half a can per serving), but only has 42 calories.
Be sure to get the artichokes packed in water or your calories from oil will shoot through the roof!
