Ingredients

  • 4 Artichokes
  • 4 Tbsp Avocado oil
  • Kosher salt and pepper to taste (or use a steak rub or other seasonings you like)
  • Heavy duty aluminum foil

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Prepare your alumni foil. Tear off four squares of foil, enough so that it will wrap a single artichoke completely. Set aside.
  • Rinse your artichokes under cold water to wash off dirt.
  • Using a sharp knife and sturdy cutting board, cut off the top third of the artichoke (see picture) as well as the bottom of the stem. You want to expose the inside of the artichoke and remove the prickly parts.
    How to Roast and Artichoke 1a
  • Set each artichoke in the middle of piece of heavy-duty foil but do not seal. Drizzle with oil and seasonings of choice.
    How to Roast an Artichoke 2a
  • Wrap the foil around the artichoke to seal it entirely and trap in the steam as it cooks.
    How to Roast an Artichoke 3a
  • Place individually wrapped artichokes on a foil lined baking sheet and place in hot oven.
  • Roast for about 1 hour or until soft. You can test for doneness by carefully opening the top of the foil (be careful, steam will rush out) and gently pulling on a leaf. If the leaf comes off easily, it's done! Serve immediately.
