Grilled ArtichokesArtichokes are a natural for grilling. Their outer leaves aren’t edible, so they char away on the outsides while the insides get smoky-sweet. Serve them with a dipping sauce that adds a kick while also cooling things down, such as yogurt mixed with fresh mint, hot red chiles, a dash of vinegar, and a pinch each of salt and sugar.

Ingredients: 

Fresh artichokes
Water
Dry white wine, such as Sauvignon Blanc (optional)
Olive oil
Kosher salt
Freshly ground pepper
 

Instructions: 

Prepare a grill. Cut artichokes in half and scrape or cut out the chokes. Blanch them until barely soft in a mixture of half water and half dry white wine, with just enough liquid to cover them. (The wine is optional, but adds a little something special.) Remove and drain, then coat the artichokes thoroughly in olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Grill over high heat, about 5 minutes per side, then cook over indirect heat for about 10 minutes. Turn every so often, until the outsides are charred and the insides are tender. Remove the burnt parts. Serve hot with a cool sauce.
