This was soooooo good. I cut my artichoke in half like the picture and wrapped each half in foil. I noticed 30 minutes was not enough time, so I put it in for another 15 minutes and it was perfection. This was my first time trying to do artichokes myself, and I am going to run out and buy more to try again! Yum!
I did these and will upload pictures eventually but I didn't see a container for them and the foil in the picture wasn't mentioned so I put them in my roaster. I also simply used my infused oil with sprinkles of balsamic vinegar and cloves and herbs over the top. Great basic recipe and totally beats steamed or boiled.
I'm going to try these again, but maybe I'll make more sauce for after the artichoke is done cooking. I doubled the sauce recipe and there still seemed to be a lack of sauce. I cooked the artichokes at 500 for 25 minutes wrapped in foil. Thanks for the post.
Thanks Vicki for this awesome artichoke recipe! The flavor is superb. Wrapped in foil and baked for 50 minutes ... dipped in butter,just perfect. P.S. I also live in AZ.
I covered these artichokes loosely in foil, and roasted them for 30 minutes at 425 degrees. It was the first time I ever cooked artichokes. I don't know if the quality of the chokes I used was poor, or what, but cooking and eating artichokes this evening was much ado about nothing. Although the flavor--what there was of it--was fine, I would not make this recipe again.
I love the idea of these because baking in the oven is so easy and the flavours were great but they did seem to take a very long time to cook. There is no time given in the recipe and I tried them for about 30 minutes but, despite being small artichokes, they still weren't done. A time would be really helpful so I get it right next time.
I was going to post a variation of this recipe, but found your submission. :) I steamed the artichokes first. Then, I placed each artichoke in the center of a large square of heavy duty aluminum foil and topped with the vinaigrette ingredients. I actually used the full amount for each artichoke. I sealed each artichoke in the foil and roasted in a 500 degree oven for about 5-8 minutes. The petals were dipped in the vinaigrette as eaten. This was a simple and flavorful method for preparing artichokes.
I have never fixed fresh artichokes before - I've always been a bit intimidated but this recipe was very easy and my parents enjoyed them very much.
