Start with two large Ocean Mist Farms fresh artichokes. Rinse under cold water and trim stem to ½-¾″ long. Snip/trim each leaf with kitchen shears or scissors. Set artichokes aside.
In a large glass microwavable container, microwave 3 cups of water until boiling (about 5 minutes). Place the artichokes in the dish of hot water with the stem sitting flat in the water. Cover the artichokes with an inverted Pyrex microwavable bowl. Microwave artichokes on high for 15 minutes. Artichokes are done when you can easily pierce through the stem with a fork.
Remove the artichokes from dish and cool until you can handle. Separate leaves from the choke and place loose artichoke leaves in a gallon food storage bag. (Save the artichoke Hearts for another healthy dish).
Spray butter or garlic flavored cooking spray on artichoke leaves and sprinkle with your favorite BBQ or mesquite seasoning. Close bag and shake until leaves are coated. Store in the refrigerator and serve with your favorite dip.
