whole artichokes, top 1 inch and stems removed
fresh lemon juice
garlic, cloves peeled and crushed
This recipe is amazing. I've tried it with regular sea salt and kosher salt, and kosher salt is definitely the way to go. Make sure that lemon juice gets on their fast, because they brown quickly.
It's even better with baby artichokes, because you can eat the inner leaves whole.
These were ok, but definitely not my favorite way to prepare artichokes. Probably won't make them this way again.
This is a quick and easy way to cook an artichoke. Couldn't find commercial-grade foil, so I used three sheets of regular foil. Whole egg mayonnaise makes a fresh dipping sauce. I'll use this recipe again.
This was so easy to make and turned out perfectly. The best artichokes I've ever had.
So easy and so delicious, very happy we found this recipe!
This recipe works brilliantly and I have cooked artichokes for over 30 years. However, the importance of choosing a proper artichoke cannot be overstated. People often attribute a bad outcome to the recipe itself, without consideration of their own laxity in ingredient choice. No recipe can fix a poor main ingredient but a good recipe can elevate a good ingredient to greatness, as I believe this recipe almost does. To finish the artichoke to greatness, cut in half and grill for 5 minutes over hot coals.
I made a dipping sauce of equal parts mayonnaise and sour cream, with chopped shallots, parsley, capers and some Worcestershire sauce. It brought the freekin' house down. This recipe rocks.
This was the best way to make artichokes. No messing boiling. The taste was amazing. Will make this way again soon.
This was easy to make and did not get a bunch of dishes dirty, so I liked that about it. The flavor was okay, not stellar but not bad. However, the big negatives for us were the scent and the appearance of the artichokes. I normally steam them and they end up a brighter green. Using the roasting method, they came out dull colored and had a kind of stinky smell, both of which were unappealing. I will probably not make this recipe again.
