10 minutes to the best artichokes you have ever eaten.
Ingredients
  • 4 large artichokes
  • 4 to 6 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 lemons
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • ½ tablespoon pepper
  • 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
Instructions
  1. *reheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Cut stems off the artichokes so that they will sit flat. Cut the top 2 inches or so off of the artichokes. Cut a large square of of aluminum foil for each artichoke. Set the artichokes in the center of the foil squares.
  3. Spread the garlic on top of the artichokes and then using a knife, open the petals so that the garlic falls down among the petals. Squeeze the lemon juice and open the petals while you sprinkle the salt and pepper down into the artichokes.
  4. Brush the olive oil over the tops of the artichokes.
  5. Wrap up the artichokes in the foil and place on a baking sheet.
  6. Bake for 60 minutes. Open up the foil and pry the petals apart by smashing down on the artichokes so that they open up. Return to oven and bake another 30 minutes.
  7. Remove from oven and let cool for a few minutes. Remove the center petals and the choke portion of each artichoke, exposing the hearts of the artichokes.
