Author's Notes

An easy way to do this is to prepare the polenta and blanch the artichokes a day ahead. Then before serving just, fire up the grill, and its done in 15 minutes!

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
To blanch Artichokes (2) , place them in a pot full of water. Add Salt (1 tablespoon) and juice of the Lemon (1) ( leave the lemon halves in the water). Bring to a boil, then simmer on low for 45 minutes.
Step 2
Drain and chill.
Step 3
Once chilled, slice in half.
Step 4
Scoop our fuzzy thistles with a spoon.
Step 5
Cut in half again. You will have 8 quarters.
Step 6
Drizzle with Olive Oil (2 Tbsp) , Distilled White Vinegar (2 Tbsp) , Salt (1 pinch) , and Ground Black Pepper (1 pinch) . Gently toss to coat.
Step 7
Bring Water (3 1/2 cups) to a boil in a medium pot. Add Salt (1 tsp) , Ground Black Pepper (1/2 tsp) , and Granulated Garlic (1 tsp) . Gradually add the Polenta (1 cup) whisking constantly. Turn heat to low, cover and cook until done.
Step 8
Once polenta has cooked and thickened, whisk in Olive Oil (2 Tbsp) and Fresh Sage (1 Tbsp) .
Step 9
Spread on a greased baking dish, smoothing out with a flat bottom metal spatula, coated in olive oil, to 3/4-inch thickness. Refrigerate, until firm and chilled over night or for at least 2 hours.
Step 10
Cut into squares, triangles or rounds.
Step 11
Toss the Cherry Tomatoes (3 cups) with Olive Oil (1/2 Tbsp) and Salt (1 pinch) .
Step 12
Preheat grill to medium high.
Step 13
Grill polenta until grill marks appear, closing lid. Flip over and grill the other side. Place on a platter.
Step 14
Grill artichokes on all sides, until slightly charred and heated through. Place around polenta.
Step 15
Char the cherry tomatoes until thy blister slightly. Arrange them around polenta and artichokes.
Step 16
Drizzle with Basil Pesto (3 Tbsp) , scatter Capers (2 Tbsp) and Fresh Basil Leaves (to taste) around the top. Add dollops of Burrata Cheese (1/2 cup) for extra richness.
