  2. While the water is heating, trim and discard the stems of the artichokes and tough outer leaves of artichokes.
  3. Tuck slivers of butter and slices of garlic into artichoke leaves.
  4. When water is boiling, place steamer insert in a pot and set artichokes in the steamer, stem-side down.
  5. Cover the pot with a lid and allow artichokes to steam for approximately 20 minutes, until tender enough that you can pull a leaf off.
  6. Serve artichokes warm, with dipping sauce.

Serves 2. Prep time, 25 minutes; cook time, 15-40 minutes, depending on the size of the artichoke.
