You will need:
- V8 (1 1/2 TBS)
- Ranch dip packet (1 TBS)
- Mayo (1/4 cup)
- Large pot of water
- Serrated Knife
Place both artichokes in boiling water, cover with lid and set the timer for 30-45 min. Smaller artichokes like the ones pictured will take approximately 30….larger artichokes will take closer to 45 min.
(I used 2 artichokes but you can cook 1 or as many as your pot will hold)
Mix 1/4 cup Mayo with 1 1/2 TBS V8 and 1 TBS ranch seasoning in bowl until combined. Taste and tweak if needed.
To eat pull off one leaf at a time, dip white fleshy bottom and pull through teeth to remove the soft, delicious portion of the petal. Discard remaining petal. Continue until all of the petals are removed. Then with your fingers or a spoon, scrape out and trash the inedible fuzzy part covering the artichoke heart. The remaining bottom of the artichoke is the heart, and the best part! Cut into pieces and dip into sauce to eat.
Hope you enjoy!
