Makes about 1 1/2 cups. This is a fun play on guacamole without the fat and calories. Serve with toasted pita chips or as a condiment scooped onto crostini or grilled chicken, steak, or salmon.

Directions
  1. Place artichoke bottoms in a small saucepan, cover with water, and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook until the artichokes are very soft, about 20 minutes. Drain.
  2. When cool enough to handle, finely chop the artichokes and place in a medium-size mixing bowl. Add the onion, tomato, lemon juice, olive oil, sesame oil, scallions, cilantro, salt, and pepper and gently mash with a fork.
