Recipe: Oven Roasted Artichoke

I love artichoke, a lot. We eat it all the time, lately we’ve been having them once a week or more. I recently started cooking them in the oven, because, well, because I felt like it. Here’s how it goes.

Oven Roasted Artichoke w/ garlic
1. wash your artichoke, rinse it good, open the leaves up as best you can, and get it all rinsed out inside, the tip it upside down so it can drain a little.
2. cut the stem off.
3. cut up some garlic, i use about 1 clove per choke.
4. stuff your choke with garlic, I even cut a little hole in the bottom and stuff it with garlic.

(a little idea- If you half your chokes, you can clean them out really well and scoop out the hairy stuff that you can’t eat, and stuff that with garlic too.)
5. sprinkle with salt and wrap your choke in foil

6. close it up tight!

bake on a baking sheet at 475 for about 45 min, depending on the size of your choke, and how shitty your oven is, my oven sucks so they cooked for almost an hour.
serve with melted butter/lemon juice or mayo/lemon juice
yum!
