Grilled Artichokes Recipe

Everyone loves these grilled artichokes and it really is simple to do. At this time of year, you can get a bag of four huge artichokes from Costco for around 5 bucks. There is something about the grill that brings out the hearty flavor and texture and the grill marks look beautiful as well.


Rinse each artichoke thoroughly. Trim off the stem and discard as it can be bitter and stringy.

Bring a large pot of water to a rapid boil and cook artichokes for approximately 15 minutes or until you can poke through the heart with a fork. Be careful not to over cook the artichoke when boiling or it may fall apart on the grill. Also keep in mind that they will continue to cook for a few minutes after draining.

Drain water from pot and set the artichokes aside to cool enough to be handled. Cut each artichoke in half and brush with a mixture of olive oil, lemon juice and lawry's steak seasoning.

Grill the artichokes cut side down on medium heat for approximately 7-10 minutes

Health Benefits

Artichoke is low in calories and fat, but is a rich source of dietary fiber; provide 5.4 g per 100 g, about 14% of RDA. Dietary-fiber helps control constipation conditions, decrease bad or "LDL" cholesterol levels by binding to it in the intestines and help prevent colon cancer risks by preventing toxic compounds in the food from absorption.
