If you love artichokes and are looking for new and different ways to prepare them, try them the Turkish way. In Turkey, you not only eat the leaves or the hearts of the artichoke, but you also eat the entire bottom of the vegetable. This way you get more artichoke flavor punch per artichoke. Artichoke bottoms Turkish-style is a spectacular dish eaten alone, as an alternative to salad, or the traditional Turkish way as a part of a larger line-up of meze, or starters served before the main meal. The light flavors and seasoning with fresh dill weed accent rather than overpower the delicate flavor of the artichoke.
