Looking for a low calorie option?
Artichokes!! Below is the easiest recipe you will ever encounter. These tasty, savory artichokes can be made with either mushroom broth or olive oil…your call! Try them and let me know how it goes.
And remember…artichokes are great for potassium, vitamin C, vitamin K and fiber, among many other attributes.
1/2 cup of mushroom broth OR 1/4 cup of extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup of balsalmic vinegar OR (if using olive oil) 1/4 cup of red wine vinegar
1/2 white onion, diced
3-4 cloves of garlic, diced
Salt and pepper to taste
How to be full without lots of calories?
Boil or steam artichoke (usually 10 minutes, although depends on size)
In a pan, put broth (or olive oil), onions, garlic, salt, and pepper and simmer on low until onions and garlic are fully cooked.
Mid-way through, add vinegar.
Drain artichokes, once boiled. Let cool. Open up artichoke leaves and spoon in the dressing into as many leaves and center as possible.
Let sit until room temperature.
Voila! Easy as can be and filling and tasty!!
