Artichokes with Roasted Garlic-Wine Dip Recipes

Artichokes with Roasted Garlic-Wine Dip

For a great appetizer and conversation starter for a dinner party, here’s a recipe for cooking whole artichokes and dipping the leaves into a sauce of sweet roasted garlic and dry white wine. If you plan to serve the remaining wine with this first course, choose a crisp, acidic pinot grigio or sauvignon blanc, which pair well with artichokes. Otherwise, any dry white will work for the sauce.

Artichoke and Fennel Caponata

This dip is chunky like a salsa, but the similarities end there. Its assortment of flavors―crisp, anise-tinged fennel, plump and chewy raisins, piquant capers, and tender, slightly sweet artichoke―create a uniquely delicious taste. The dip is best with something nice and crunchy; slice baguette very thin and toast well, or use fancy crackers.

Couscous with Artichokes, Feta, and Sun-Dried Tomatoes

Pure and simple flavors stand out in this dish. In each bite, you'll taste the sweet tang of tomatoes, the salty bite of feta, the tender juiciness of chicken, and the briny sweetness of marinated artichoke hearts. Israeli couscous makes the recipe unique―its grains are much larger than regular couscous and they add a chewy texture that's another layer of depth.
