Just boil the artichoke in water & you'll have a tasty deep green broth when the artichoke is done cooking. Eat the artichoke leaves in olive oil & balsamic, then drink the broth when done. I like to boil the broth & steep green tea in it... add a hint of honey & it's seriously quite delicious & healthy.
