Oven Roasted Artichokes

Garlic Cloves
Garlic Paste
Parmesan Cheese
Olive Oil
Aluminum Foil

I used 4 large Artichokes for this recipe.

Preheat the oven to 425

First cut the tops off each one as well as the bottom of the stem. The drizzle with olive oil. On the top of the artichoke rub with ground garlic paste (the kind that you can get in the jar at any supermarket)Cut 4 large pieces of Aluminum foil and get a glass baking dish ready. Place each of the artichokes in a piece of the foil with a garlic clove and second drizzle of olive oil. Wrap tightly and let cook for 1 hour and 15 minutes.

Take out of oven and unwrap carefully. Cut each artichoke in half and lay in baking dish. Add 2 pats of butter for each half and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Place back in oven for 10 minutes. Then turn on broiler for until desired browning is reached. Serve hot.


  1. YUM! I love artichokes but haven't cooked them like this before. I bet they were great.

  2. These are something I would make. I am wondering if the outer leaves are tough or edible. Where did you buy the artichokes that were this big? All the places I find locally have small ones. :-(

  3. I bought them at Costco. They were in a bog of 4 for only $5.99!!! What a steal!
    The outer leaves were tender and edible. My husband gobbled up 2 in less than 5 minutes!
