Karl’s Greek Artichoke Rice

I make Greek barbecued lamb for Easter and I wanted a Greek starch side dish. I have done Spanakorizo (spinach rice) and Spanakorzo (spinach pasta), but I wanted to do something different. The Persian store near me carries large frozen artichoke caps and I decided to do something with them.

Karl’s Steamed Artichokes with Tarragon Caper Butter Sauce

I am making chicken cacciatore and rustic bread for Sunday dinner. I wanted a hot veg to go with these dishes. It has been a while since I made steamed artichokes.

Roasted Artichokes

My family really likes artichokes. Normally, I steam and serve them with a dill sauce. Cook’s Illustrated this month had a baked artichoke recipe that would go nicely with the Middle Eastern Feast I am making for Mother’s Day. It is so simple and hands-off; it is perfect for finishing off in the oven while I am concentrating on the barbequing the game hens. For once, I actually followed someone’s instructions.
