Technically an unbloomed flower bud, the artichoke is a California kid, with nearly 100% of the U.S. crop grown in the state. Extremely popular in Mediterranean cuisine, artichokes are a great source of vitamin C and magnesium while being virtually fat-free! Whether you use artichoke hearts on a pizza, stuff them with prosciutto and cheese, or eat the leaves on their own, artichokes can be tailored to numerous health-conscious dishes without sacrificing flavor.
