Description

Make these simple roasted artichoke hearts in a true Sicilian fashion! This recipe comes directly from Sicily and it will make you love artichokes forever.


Ingredients

  • 12 globe artichokes
  • 60ml (4 tbsp) olive oil
  • ½ lemon, juiced
  • 125ml (½ cup) parsley, washed and finely chopped
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F/gas mark 6.
  2. First, clean the artichokes by cutting off their stems. Peel off the tough outer layers. When you reach the softer layers, use a serrated knife to cut off about 3/4 inches from the top. Cut artichoke in half lengthwise. Then, using a sharp paring knife, remove all the “hairs” on the inside.
  3. Mix the artichoke halves in a bowl with the oil, lemon juice, parsley and plenty of salt and pepper.
  4. Arrange the hearts on a lined baking sheet and cook for about 15 minutes, or until golden brown.
  5. Flip them around and cook for another 10 minutes. Keep an eye on them to prevent burning!
  6. Serve immediately as part of a Mediterranean meal.

Notes

  • Alternatively, cook the artichokes on a barbecue and grill until cooked; roughly the same time as you would an oven.
