Recipe Ingredients for Steamed Artichokes with Almond Saffron Dip

4 artichokes
1 pinch saffron
1 tablespoon boiling water
1/4 cup sliced almonds
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 small onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 cup nonfat plain yogurt
1/4 cup parsley
1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice

Recipe Directions for Steamed Artichokes with Almond Saffron Dip

  1. Arrange the artichokes in a steamer basket set over at least 3 cups of water and steam, covered, until the leaves can be easily removed, about 1 hour. About halfway through cooking check the water level and add more, if necessary.

  2. Let cool.

  3. In a small bowl, stir together saffron and the tablespoon of boiling water.

  4. Toast the almonds in a small dry skillet over medium-high heat until beginning to brown, about 2 minutes.

  5. Remove the almonds and add 1 tablespoon of the oil to the pan.

  6. Add onion and cook until beginning to brown, 3 to 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Transfer to a bowl and let cool.

  7. In a food processor, grind the almonds until finely chopped. Add the saffron mixture, onion mixture, yogurt and parsley and puree until smooth.

  8. Transfer to a bowl and stir in the lemon juice and remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil. Season, to taste, with salt and pepper.

  9. Serve with the artichokes.
