This artichoke and brie dish looks great and is easy to execute.We love seasonal vegetables, especially when they're as interactive as artichokes (and as beautiful to behold). Something about pulling off the leaves, dipping them in something yummy and scraping off the sweet, tender flesh with our teeth is so satisfying. Plus they're all-natural, which is lot healthier than something out of a bag dipped in something out of a jar.

Rather than dip your artichoke leaves in butter, aioli or other sauce, bake a creamy-crunchy brie-spiked sauce right on top and let the goodness ooze all over. Sound like a plan?
It's a very easy recipe, but make sure the brie you're using is top-quality, otherwise it won't be as tasty. Use a lot of thyme and lots of almonds for extra flavor and crunchiness!
2 large artichokes, top quarter and stems sliced off
3 ounces brie, rind removed and cut into chunks
