I found baby artichokes at the market yesterday and far be it from me not to take the babies home!

I have limited experience with artichokes, but figured I would just forge ahead. I pulled the hard outer leaves off from the stem and then trimmed the stem and peeled it also . You also have to snip about a 1/4 inch off the top of the artichoke

Then I cut them in quarters and tossed gently with lemon juice, olive oil, fresh ground red pepper, black pepper and sea salt.

Roast at 400 degrees for about 1/2 hour. Sprinkle with some extra salt when you first take them out of the oven..truly delish!
