Artichokes are one of my favorite favorite favorite foods. I could eat them every day. For years I’ve just steamed them, but last night decided to try roasting them. If you’re jonesing for an artichoke and want one in under 30 minutes, steam them. If you’re patient, roast them stuffed with garlic. I liked this version even better than steamed.
Extra virgin olive oil
Half fresh lemon
2 garlic cloves, sliced thin
1) Cut off the top third of the artichoke, and then cut off the stem.
2) Drizzle a little olive oil on a large square of foil. Place artichoke in the middle of the foil, then squeeze juice from half of a lemon over it.
3) Stick the garlic inside the leaves of the artichoke, then sprinkle with kosher salt.
4) Wrap up the foil around the artichoke and bake for an hour and a half on 400.
