  Makes 4 servings as an appetizer or side dish
For the Artichokes:
1 head garlic, cut in half horizontally
1/2 lemon, sliced
1 teaspoon salt
4 large artichokes
For the Ratatouille:
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 cloves garlic, chopped, then blended with 1/2 teaspoon salt
1 small onion, chopped
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1 green bell pepper, chopped
2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil, or 2 teaspoons dried
2 medium yellow squash, cut into 1/2-inch cubes, about 2 1/2 cups
1 tomato, chopped
1 tablespoon tomato paste
1/4 cup dry white wine
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup sliced pitted black olives
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
Fill a large pot with water, then add the garlic, lemon, and salt. Bring the water to a boil. While the water is coming to the boil, cut off the stems of the artichokes, then trim about 1 inch off the top. Remove any withered outer leaves.

Place in the boiling water, cover the pot, and cook for 30 to 40 minutes, or until an outer leaf pulls off easily. Drain the artichokes upside down. Using tongs, open the artichoke and pull out the center leaves. Scoop out the inedible choke with a spoon.

While the artichokes are cooking, make the ratatouille. In a large sauté pan, heat the oil. Add the garlic and salt and cook for 1 minute. Add the onion and the red and green bell peppers and cook for 3 minutes. Add the basil. Stir in the yellow squash and tomato and cook for 5 minutes more.

Then stir in the tomato paste and wine and cook for another 3 minutes. Just before serving, season with salt and pepper and stir in the black olives and lemon juice.

Spoon the ratatouille into the center of each artichoke, allowing it to cascade over the opened leaves onto the plate.
