1. Put it on a rack just above the water in the pressure cooker and steam for 15 mins at high pressure (second setting). No need to add salt.

2. Eat it leave by leave. Here is how:

Nutritional Value:
High in Dietary Fiber, Vitamin C, Vitamin K, Folate, Magnesium, Potassium, Copper, Manganese, Niacin, Vitamin B6, Iron and Phosphorus. According to wikipedia, the total antioxidant capacity of artichoke flower heads is one of the highest reported for vegetables. It is said to aid digestion, strengthen of the liver function and gall bladder function, and raising of the HDL/LDL ratio. This reduces cholesterol levels, which diminishes the risk for arteriosclerosis and coronary heart disease.

Additional Information:
It is in season now and I saw very nice ones from IRMA Supermarket. Artichokes takes a long time to cook, but an excellent solution is to steam it with pressure cooker. This is one of my Mr. FECS' favourite, but unfortunately Our Little FECS refused to try it :-(
