The buttery artichoke
Native to the Mediterranean, the artichoke is technically nothing more than a giant undeveloped flower bud. Cook one up, however, and you'll be treated to a delicious, nutty flavor that pairs well with butter and other creamy sauces.
Artichokes are also very good for you, containing more health-boosting antioxidants than most other vegetables. They're also high in dietary fiber and folic acid, and can be beneficial against high cholestrol and blood pressure.
