Ingredients

  • 4 large artichokes
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 lemon, sliced
  • 1 cup vegetable broth

Directions

  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Prepare the artichokes by using a sharp knife to trim off the top third of each artichoke, then remove the tough outer leaves. Cut off the stems and use a pair of kitchen scissors to trim the thorny tips of the remaining leaves.
  3. In a small bowl, mix together the olive oil, minced garlic, dried thyme, dried rosemary, salt, and black pepper.
  4. Place the artichokes in a baking dish and drizzle the seasoned olive oil mixture over them, making sure to coat all sides. Place some lemon slices on top of each artichoke. Pour vegetable broth into the dish for additional moisture.
  5. Cover the baking dish tightly with aluminum foil and bake for 30 minutes.
  6. After 30 minutes, remove the foil and baste the artichokes with the juices from the bottom of the dish. Return to the oven, uncovered, and continue baking for another 15 minutes or until the artichokes are tender and the leaves are crispy.
  7. Serve the baked artichokes hot with a side of your favorite dipping sauce or aioli. Enjoy!
