Artichokes & Cheat’s Hollandaise
This is ideal for a starter or mid arvo snack. It’s ideal for one, however the sauce will suffice for two if you don’t mind sharing…
Salt & pepper
50g of butter,
2 Tbsp of mayonnaise,
1 egg yolk
Ice at the ready,
You’ll also need a Large pot, bowl, balloon whisk, scissors, ramekin and paper towel.
Boil for 25-30 mins. You’ll see the outer layers start to peel away by themselves when it’s ready. As soon as that happens get some ice into the bowl and plunge the artichoke straight in,
Rinse the pot and reserve for making the sauce,
Place the artichoke on a board (halving is optional.) Begin with the outer leaves and when you finally get to the centre, discard the fluffy fibers in the centre and enjoy the prized Artichoke heart instead!
