Hey mama! How are you?

Lately I've been really craving artichokes, like I see them in the store and start drooling.

I should also mention that I love garlic so I decided to cook them in a way that I haven't done before. 

I decided to bake the artichokes in the oven to get that all around tender taste in each leaf.

Here is what you'll need:

2 artichokes 

Extra virgin olive oil

3 Cloves garlic 

Thyme

Sea salt

Pepper

Pesto Bitchin Sauce (for dipping)

Directions:

Cut the artichokes in half. Then take a small spoon and remove the middle "hairy" part of the artichoke.

Place the artichokes in a baking pan and drizzle olive oil on top. I mince my garlic cloves and place on top of the artichokes. Then add salt, 1 tbs of thyme, and pepper to your taste preference.

Then place foil over the top of the baking dish placing the artichokes facing down.

Bake at 400 degrees for 40-45 minutes.  

 

You can place the artichoke halves on a plate and serve right away with the pesto flavored Bitchin Sauce.

 

THEY ARE SO YUM! PLUS the Bitchin Sauce is a perfect dipping sauce!

 

Enjoy!
