Artichoke: the aphrodisiac
Did you know that artichokes are an aphrodisiac for man and women?
A fresh artichoke looks like a vagina. In the 16th century the artichoke was very popular by men. They thought by eating this, it gave them strength to their sexual power. For women it was strictly forbidden to eat artichokes!
I'll take one please!
Thank heavens we live in the 21th century now so everybody can enjoy this lovely veggie!
I made a creamy artichoke spinach hummus with it. Stuffed with vitamins, minerals, fibers, protein and just very delicious!
And we called it an early night...

large can of chickpeas (save a few for decoration)
2 handful of spinach
1 clove of garlic
3 tbs tahini or 3 tbs peanut butter

Mix all the ingredients in a food processor and add olive oil until it makes a creamy mass.
