What is the best way to cook artichokes?
Steaming artichokes seems like the most common way to prepare this gigantic edible flower but roasting them yields more flavor and allows to you season them so you could even enjoy without a dipping sauce.
How do you eat roasted artichokes?
Use the petals of the artichoke as scoops for whatever dip you’re using. Place the fleshy bottom part in your mouth, bite down and pull the petal away. Your teeth will scrape off all that delicious flesh and you wont have to worry about the fibrous part. The Delicious heart can be eaten with a fork and knife, just make sure you have removed all the fur.

Side note: My mom would always serve our artichokes with that onion powder you mix with sour cream. That stuff was what little kid dreams are made of! So If you don’t have time to blend up an aioli just serve with whatever dipping sauce your family loves!
How long do you roast artichokes?
Bake at 400F cut side down for about 15 minutes. Remove from oven, cover in foil, and bake an additional 25-30 minutes or until tender.
