baby artichokes (about 2 pounds)
large onion, chopped
extra-virgin olive oil
low-sodium chicken broth
chopped fresh rosemary
grated lemon zest
15 ounce cans Great Northern beans, rinsed and drained
Peel stems from artichokes. Remove bottom and tough outer leaves leaving tender heart. Trim about 1 inch from the top of artichokes and place in a Dutch oven filled 3/4 with water; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes or until choke is tender; drain and set aside to cool. Cut each artichoke in half lengthwise. Place artichoke halves, cut sides down, on grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 4 minutes on each side or until golden brown; set aside, keeping warm.
Sauté onions in oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat, until tender but not brown, about 3 minutes. Add garlic and cook 1 minute. Add broth and next 3 ingredients; cook 2 minutes or until thoroughly heated.
Combine wine and garlic slices in a small saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer until liquid almost evaporates. Add 1/2 cup broth and simmer until reduced by 1/2.
To serve, divide bean mixture between 6 bowls and top with 2 artichoke halves. Drizzle 1 Tbsp. broth mixture over artichokes; sprinkle each serving with chives and thyme.
