Ingredients Needed To Make Roasted Artichokes…

For our recipe, you will need the following ingredients:

ARTICHOKES: Choose fresh artichokes that are not too large. Medium-sized or smaller ones are best.

SEASONINGS: You will only need some salt, black pepper, and garlic powder for these to be flavorful.

BREAD CRUMBS: Choose plain bread crumbs for a nice crunch in every bite.

CHEESE: We prefer to use 2 kinds of grated cheeses. Grated parmesan and pecorino cheese, and you will only need a small amount to scatter over them.

LEMONS: Fresh lemons are a must! You will need some fresh lemon juice to scatter over the chokes, and a few slices to scatter around on the baking sheet.

OLIVE OIL: Choose a good quality of extra virgin olive oil to drizzle over the chokes just before they go into the oven to roast. Olive oil will give them flavor and keep them moist while roasting.

How To Prepare and Season Artichokes?

Once the chokes are cleaned and prepped, the rest is easy. For easy cleanup, place of sheet of aluminum foil and cover your baking sheet. (*Full printable recipe card below!)

Step 1: Rinse the cleaned chokes and drain. Then lay the chokes face-up and close to one another on the baking sheet.

Step 2: Scatter some slices of lemon around them and in between them.

Step 3: Scatter over each choke with some salt, pepper, and garlic powder.

Step 4: Then scatter over them with some pecorino and parmesan cheeses. Next, lightly spoon some bread crumbs over each choke.

Frequent Questions & Answers…

  2. What temperature to roast them? We prefer to roast them at 400 degrees Fahrenheit (204C).
  3. Do we need to dry them after rinsing and before roasting? No, the chokes need to be wet. They need the moisture when roasting.
  4. How long do we roast them? Roast them for about 15 to 20 minutes, until you can pierce a fork through them easily. They should be golden brown and crispy on the edges.
  5. How can we tell they are ready? When you can pierce a knife or fork into them easily, then you know they are ready to come out of the oven.
