Roasted Artichoke with Garlic

I try to make something a little special on the weekends that sets it apart from our weekly routine.  This weekend was an appetizer of Roasted artichoke with garlic.  It was super easy to put together.  The longest part was just the time it took to cook.

Ingredients:

  • 2 artichokes
  • 2 cloves of garlic chopped
  • 1 lemon
  • 4 tablespoons of olive oil
  • sea salt
  • foil
  • baking dish

Directions:

  • preheat oven to 425

    Cut off about an inch or two off the top of your artichoke and rinse.  Cut off the the stem at the bottom so it isn’t too long as well.

    Spread open the leaves a bit.

Sprinkle one of the chopped cloves of garlic on each artichoke.  Squeeze half of a lemon over each artichoke and 2 tablespoons of olive oil over each one as well.  Sprinkle a dash of sea salt over each artichoke.

Wrap them up in foil and place in a baking dish.  Bake at 425 for an hour or an hour and 10 mins depending on your oven.
