Crunchy Roasted Artichoke Hearts are a great way to get your family to eating more artichokes!
I often make these roasted artichoke hearts as an appetizer for my family while they wait patiently for me to get dinner ready.
It usually helps keep them from running to the pantry and grabbing something unhealthy.
WHY WE LOVE This Recipe?
Using frozen artichoke hearts eliminates all the prep work needed as opposed to using fresh artichoke hearts. Plus, they come already pre-cut and quartered for you. 🙂
Each 12-ounce package contains about 30 pieces of artichokes, enough to serve a small crowd or a family of 4 to 5.
The total time to dip and coat the chokes is about 10 minutes.
Best of all, these artichoke hearts are roasted in the oven, instead of fried! Making them healthier and not oily.
Crunchy on the outside and tender on the inside and SO delicious! A fun-finger food to serve family and friends.
Artichokes are loaded with nutrients and it’s a vegetable in the superfoods category.
How To Make These Crunchy Roasted Artichoke Hearts:
1. Once the chokes are completely thawed. Place the chokes in between paper towels and lightly press on top to squeeze out excess water from them.
2. Pour olive oil into a small bowl and mix the bread crumb mixture in a second bowl.
3. Take each artichoke heart and dip to coat in olive oil and then coat into the bread crumb mixture. Then transfer onto a baking pan.
4. Roast in a preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes, until the chokes are golden brown and crispy. Remove and serve with a few lemon wedges on the side, or with our lemon-garlic aioli for dipping.
Cook’s Notes and TIPS for Success!
It’s always best to make your own bread crumbs mixture using plain bread crumbs with your own seasonings. This way you can control what goes into the mixture, and how much.
No need to add any salt to this recipe, the parmesan cheese will give it enough flavor to these artichokes.
Look for a good quality Parmesan cheese. I prefer Parmigiano-Reggiano over any other brand. Other brands are imitation, cheaper versions, and loaded with processed ingredients.
Never waste a drop of good quality extra virgin olive oil! Always spoon or drizzle any remaining olive oil from the bowl over the prepared artichokes before they go into the oven.
Make them ahead and leave them on the counter for an hour or so, or chill, then fully roast them before family and friends arrive.
Serve these crunchy roasted artichokes hearts alone or with our creamy lemon-garlic aioli dip for an extra delicious flavor! (recipe included)
Roasted Artichoke Hearts not only make a fun-finger appetizer, but you can also serve as a side dish with dinner!
