I love the grassy, sweet taste of artichokes — the bud of a flower in the thistle family. But when I first started cooking, artichokes intimidated me.

I finally confronted my artichoke phobia when I got my first restaurant job. I needed to learn how to prep and cook artichokes — and fast. Needless to say, I served plenty of creamy artichoke soup in those early days as I was figuring out how to cook these delicate spring vegetables. I finally know how, and there really is nothing to it. I promise.

Check out the slideshow above for foolproof steps for preparing and trimming artichokes, plus 4 easy ways to cook them and additional recipes.
