These easy Braised Artichokes with White Wine and Herbs are so delicious and easy to prepare. Don't be intimidated by the bit of time it takes to trim and quarter the artichokes— it is worth the few minutes it takes! The tender, savory artichokes make a great side dish, but they can also be enjoyed at room temperature or served chilled on a salad. Cooked in a combination of savory broth, wine, garlic and herbs, they get extra punch and freshness from the lemon zest and fresh parsley that you stir in at the end of cooking.
Heat the broth, wine, oil, thyme, garlic and bay leaf in a 4-quart saucepan over high heat to a boil. Add the artichokes. Reduce the heat to medium-low. Cook for 20 minutes or until artichokes are tender when pierced with a fork. Stir in the lemon zest and parsley and remove the saucepan from the heat.
Season to taste with salt and pepper and serve hot, spooning any remaining broth mixture over the artichokes.
