Ingredients

  • 4 globe artichokes
  • 1 lemon
  • 8 cloves garlic
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 F
  • Cut off top 1/3 of artichoke, and also the stem. Pull apart leaves on top slightly and put 2 cloves garlic in the center of each artichoke.
  • In a baking pan, first put a piece of aluminum foil down and then place the artichokes on top.
  • Squeeze lemon juice over artichokes.
  • Drizzle olive oil over top of artichokes, 1/2 tablespoon for each.
  • Wrap artichokes in aluminum foil and bake for about 1 hour or until an outer leaf can be pulled out easily.. Check after 45 minutes or so to make sure it doesn't burn, as cooking time may vary.
  • Eat by dipping leaves in melted butter or other dipping sauce, and scraping the "meat" off with your teeth. Once all leaves are removed, use a spoon to scoop out the furry part from the heart and rinse before eating.

Notes

Cooking time may vary based on artichoke size and oven. Adding a little water in the bottom of the baking pan may help prevent burning.
