Artichokes are the lobster of plants.
Edit: Same cooking method, both delicious dipped in butter, both are a ton of work to eat and the amount of food you get is significantly less than the amount of non-food.

they’re a whole ordeal to actually eat the whole thing, you can eat them with a buttery sauce, the artichoke heart is like a coveted lobster claw, they both seem to have a cult following (yes, i wouldn’t consider whole lobster eating mainstream)
