Paleo Roasted Artichokes with Garlic and Lemon

Oh my goodness, these are so, so good! If you want something different from your boring old steamed/boiled artichokes, try these; I promise you won’t regret it! This recipe comes from Amy over at Paleo Cupboard, full link at the bottom of the page. Not only does she have tips and tricks if you are just starting on your Paleo journey, but she also lists her favorite products that she uses & where to buy them.  She has the most beautiful food  (and it tastes great too).

Ingredients:

  • 2 artichokes
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 fresh lemon (I used a lime because we have a lime tree that is producing like crazy)
  • 2 tsp chopped garlic
  • Dash sea salt
  • Dash black pepper

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 425F
  2. Cut the stems and the top portion off of the artichoke (about the top inch or two). Make sure to cut the stems straight across so the artichokes can stand up on their own
  3. Spread the artichoke leaves apart and trim off any pointy leaf ends (I used kitchen scissors to make it easier)
  4. Pour the olive oil, freshly squeezed lemon juice and chopped garlic over the artichokes, making sure everything gets between the leaves. Give each artichoke a dash or two of sea salt & ground black pepper
  5. Wrap each artichoke individually in aluminum foil and set them in a baking dish. Place them in the oven and allow them to cook for 1 hour (add about 15 minutes more for larger artichokes)
  6. Remove from the oven and allow the artichokes to cool slightly. Carefully remove the aluminum foil. Serve with some extra lemon wedges and/or your favorite dipping sauce
