The Artichoke, The Superfood Makes a Comeback
With its countless health benefits, Artichokes have always been a superfood. They are low in fat, high in fiber, and loaded with vitamins and minerals like vitamin C, vitamin K, folate, phosphorus, and magnesium. They are also one of the richest sources of antioxidants. They are also delicious and create an eye-catching dish.
The artichoke is particularly valued for its delicacy and tenderness.
Its versatility at the dinner table turns the artichoke into a vegetable with its own unique flavor and characteristics. The delicate vegetable has taken the difficult leap from an average accompaniment to top tier gastronomy with prestigious chefs making it the center of some of their prize-winning plates.
It is a food that has become essential at any table since artichokes can be served both warm and chilled, and as a main dish, a side dish or as a starter. Raw, braised, steamed, or in whichever way it is prepared, the artichoke is synonymous with quality and good taste, and it has carved out its own legacy in the best kitchens. Yet, above all, the artichoke is renowned for its cleansing and lasting health benefits.
