Super-fast, Super-Easy, Microwave Artichokes

“Well, I’m never dirtying up another pot cooking artichokes. I put two
in a pyrex bowl, followed the directions below. They were wonderful.
Certainly as good as any made it a pot of water. And only 8 minutes
plus 5 minutes rest time. Great!!! I see lots of artichokes in my
future when they are this easy.” –Terry P.

Select tender artichokes. Use scissors to cut off the pointed tips of all leaves. Set in deep dish with points up. Add 1/2 inch water to dish. Cover. Microwave on high for approximately 4 minutes per artichoke. Remove from oven and let set in covered dish for 5 minutes. Serve with herb butter and lemon juice.
