Ingredients

For the artichokes:

  • 4 medium artichokes
  • 1 large lemon
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 sprigs thyme broken into smaller pieces
  • salt and pepper to taste

Lemon Garlic Parmesan Dip (optional)

  • 3/4 cup plain Greek yogurt or sub with mayo
  • ½ cup finely grated parmesan
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions 

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  • Trim 1/4" off the stem of the artichokes and peel the remaining stem with a vegetable peeler. Cut off the top 1/3 of the artichokes, then snip off the thorny tips off of the petals of each. Be careful -- they're sharp! Cut each artichoke in half, then in quarters, and rub the cut sides with lemon juice to prevent browning from oxidation.
  • Place the artichoke quarters and thyme sprigs on a large rimmed baking sheet and toss with the olive oil and salt and pepper to taste. Roast for 30-40 minutes or until the tip of a knife is inserted into the base of the artichoke easily. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly.
  • Before serving, using a melon baller or teaspoon, remove the fuzzy top of the artichoke heart (see photo in post for clarification).

For the dip:

  • Place all ingredients into a medium bowl and whisk to combine.
  • Serve the artichokes as an appetizer or side dish, and enjoy!

Notes

  • Cooking time will vary depending on the size of the artichokes.
  • You can remove the fuzzy top of the artichoke heart before the artichokes are roasted, but it's easier to do afterwards when they're softer.
  • Be very careful when removing the thorny tips of the artichoke petals, they're sharp!
  • The dip is optional as the roasted artichokes also taste delicious on their own.
