Short Cuts: Artichoke Recipe Ideas

Here are my favorite quick and easy artichoke recipes:

Super quick: 1 can artichokes, in water (from Trader Joe's for the discount). Drain. Eat!

A slightly longer shortcut, toss together the following.

  • 1 can of water-packed artichokes, drained
  • Fresh squeezed lemon juice, to taste
  • 1-2 TBS of olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Option 1: add chopped garlic in with the lemon and olive oil

Option2: instead of olive oil, mix the lemon juice, salt and pepper into a cup of greek yogurt then toss with the artichoke hearts. Snipped scallions optional.

Salad Idea:

  • 1  can of water-packed artichokes, drained
  • 1 can of garbanzo beans or white beans, drained
  • 1 jar of fire roasted red peppers,drained drained
  • Olives
  • Feta
  • Place artichoke mix on a bed of arugula
