Roasted Artichokes

I recently had the best grilled artichokes at a restaurant called Bricktops in Nashville, TN. It’s halved, sprinkled with spices, and served with an aioli sauce. It was a great appetizer, but I would have eaten it as a meal it was so good.

When I returned home the next day, those artichokes played with my mine. I wanted more, and I wanted them now. However, I didn’t have fresh artichokes readily available to me, nor did I have a grill to complete the task. I did have a couple of canned artichoke hearts, though, and threw them on a pan with a drizzle of olive oil and spices that went straight into the oven. While they roasted I whipped up a quick horseradish sauce.

The crispy leaves and the soft hearts served as a delicious appetizer that even my little brother and sister enjoyed.

Notes

*Mayonnaise is not considered the most healthy food, but you can always make your own so that you can control what exactly goes into it. For a quick store-bought mayonnaise, I like a brand called Lemonaise.

    I’ve never seen large artichokes like these. For years, we have always used the marinated artichokes which are much smaller. I can’t wait to try these.
