Baked Artichokes

My step mom sent me this recipe and I just had to share it! She is the best cook I know and is heavily responsible for my becoming a foodie! Of course I added extra garlic because garlic is good. I also added the lemon zest, no sense in green wasting the best part, I also added red pepper flakes for some heat.


4 cloves garlic per choke
juice of one lemon
Zest of one lemon
1 TBSP olive oil
1/2 tsp sea salt
Red pepper flakes – to your taste
3 TBSP broth
2 artichokes

heavy foil
Baking dish

Preheat oven to 425.

Mix together lemon juice, zest, oil, broth, pepper flakes and salt.

Place artichokes in center of foil and loosely pull up the sides of the foil, place in baking sheet. Spread leaves apart, stuff with garlic and pour the mixture over petals. Tightly wrap the foil and bake 60-90 minutes.

Serves 2.
