Everyone wants flavor!

Especially when cooking with vegetables…

But not all vegetables need a lot of jazzing up – at least not these artichoke hearts. They’re prepared in one easy step and once you try them you’ll agree they deserve a spot on the table all year round!

Easy Roasted Artichoke Hearts…

 These are roasted in the oven or (in the Air-fryer) with only salt, pepper, and a drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil; and served with a side of Lemon-Garlic Aioli for dipping!

And yes, the outcome is always delicious and perfect every time!

Crispy on the outside, tender on the inside with every bite. We love eating them alone as they satisfy the salty-savory flavor we crave from time to time.

But if you have picky eaters in the family (like I do) then I suggest adding a flavorful lemon-garlic aioli dip next to it.

Once you dip into this lemony aioli, these artichoke hearts will become even more amazing!


How to Make Easy Roasted Artichoke Hearts: (*full recipe card below!)

  1.  Simply take packages of frozen artichoke hearts and leave them out on the counter to defrost.

  2.  Then scatter them onto a roasting pan, and gently drizzled some salt and olive oil over them.

  3.  Next, roast them for 25 minutes until they were slightly charred, golden brown, and crispy.   YUM!

Artichoke hearts turn out perfect every time I roast them this way. They make a wonderful appetizer, or even a great snack when you need one.

Simple and quick!  🙂


Where can we find artichoke hearts?

You can find artichoke hearts in the freezer section at every supermarket.  Plus, when they go on sale, I double up on them.

I love keeping these packages of frozen artichoke hearts in my freezer.  I never know who is coming over. 

They’re so convenient to whip up and serve with a glass of wine, especially when friends come to hang out.

Today, we offer 2 easy-to-make recipes for Lemon-Garlic Aioli to serve with these artichoke hearts.  (both are included in our recipe card below!)

Each recipe for the aioli has similar fresh ingredients and flavors, but only different textures.

Either one will satisfy anyone’s palate.

Best of all,  these artichoke hearts are nutrient “superstar” vegetables to serve your family, offering all the nutrients and vitamins without added calories and fat.

They’re wonderful to serve as a side dish to compliment almost anything. 

Serve them alone or as a fun-finger appetizer with a lemon-garlic dip and watch how they’ll disappear!

Your family will love these roasted artichoke hearts and not even realize they’re eating something healthy- but.. shh… don’t tell them, or you’ll spoil the fun!

    How do guests pick up the artichoke to dip them? Seems like they would slide off a toothpick. Thanks!!

      Hi Susie,
      Your guests can spoon (or with a fork) a few artichokes into their own plates, and spoon some of the dips as well. Then they can easily use their fingers to pick up each one and dip it from their own plate. This is a safe way to serve appetizers these days during Covid. I hope this helps! Have a great evening. 🙂

    I made these. If you want to get that beautiful browned look, you need to increase the temp to 450.

      Hi Kathy! Welcome to our blog, it’s so nice to meet you! Yes, you can certainly increase the temperature to brown them even more. I try to remind everyone that all ovens vary and recipes are guidelines. Thanks so much for stopping by! 🙂

    I never think of having artichokes as a vegetable, and that needs to change! These look really good- I'm going to look for some at the grocery. I never knew you could get them frozen. 🙂
