I typically go with the standard boiled, or steamed artichoke. This time I wanted to try something a little different. Simple Roasted Artichokes! I think the great thing about this method, is you aren't limited to how many you can prepare based on the size of your pots. No need for 2 or more pots on the stove just to seam your 'chokes. This would be the perfect method for feeding a crowd. (And with artichokes on sale here for .99 each, who could resist!) Just wash & trim your artichokes - I always cut the tops with a serrated knife, cut the stem, and then trim the individual leaves with kitchen shears. Then lay each artichoke on a large section of foil, drizzle with olive oil (I used this lemon olive oil & it was tasty!), and season to your taste. If you are in the mood, you can shove a whole, peeled garlic clove in the top. Then just wrap the whole artichoke up and repeat with the next. Place into a preheated 425 degree oven, on the rack, and cook for an hour. Carefully remove from oven and let set for 5 or so minutes. Unwrap and Enjoy!
