ARTICHOKE 101 | how to cook and eat artichokes

Learn how to cook and eat artichokes! I’ll also show you how to shop for, store and prepare your artichokes. I love to steam artichokes. This is the easiest way to cook them and perfect for a beginner.

An artichoke is an immature flower bud of a thistle plant. They are a round green vegetable made up of lots of leaves tightly packed together.

They have great health benefits; high in fiber, rich in antioxidants and offer a good amount of Vitamin C. I will link to some artichoke recipes below. Enjoy!

Simply Sauteed Baby Artichokes:
Healthy Artichoke + Collard Green Dip:
Artichoke, Asparagus + Green Bean Salad:


3-4 artichokes, trimmed
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1/2 lemon
filtered water

3-4 artichokes
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 lemon
filtered water
salt and pepper to taste

Was artichokes under cold water. Trim the bottom of the stem and pull off any tough leaves near the bottom of the artichoke.

Using a scissor, trim off the thorny portion of each leaf. This will about 1/4-1/3 of the leaf.

Using a sharp knife, trim off the top of the artichoke where the leaves are tightly packed together. I like to use a serrated knife for this.

Place a few inches of water in the bottom of a large pot along with a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil, and 1/2 a lemon. Bring to a boil, then reduce down to a simmer.

Place the artichokes in the bottom of the pot (you should be able to fit 3-4 artichokes depending on the size of the artichokes and the size of your pot). Simmer for for 35-45 minutes or until the stems are tender and the thicker bottom leaves pulls out easily.

Remove the artichokes from the pot and once they are cool enough to handle, lay them flat side down and cut them in half lengthwise.

Use a spoon to scoop out the choke and any tough leaves near the center (they are not edible so you can toss them!).

Serve with fresh lemon, vinaigrette and/or some garlic aioli. Enjoy!

Cooking time may vary based on the size of your artichokes. Ultimately, you want the stem to be fork tender and the leaves to pull out easily. Let this be your guide.
