Here is another of my Mom's specialties. Just like with my Fried Artichokes, choose artichokes that are no bigger than your fist so they are tender. Hope everyone enjoys this. It's one of our family's favorite. If you're wondering why we chose to use garlic powder? It's because we prefer the subtle taste of garlic. No one likes to bite into a chunk of garlic, so we went with powder.
Peel back dark green leaves of artichokes until you get to the tender center. Cut top of artichoke about half way down and remove choke if necessary. Cut artichokes in 4 quarters. Par boil with juice of 1/2 lemon until fork tender.
Drain artichokes and place in a 9" x 13" pan. Sprinkle ingredients over top evenly and drizzle with olive oil.
