A fresh, spiky artichoke can be a little intimidating when spotted at the grocery store. We like to reap the benefits of artichokes in a more palatable way, using canned artichoke hearts. Read on for our quick no-bake artichoke purée!

What You'll Need

  • blender or food processor
  • can opener
  • citrus juicer
  • colander
  • measuring cups
  • Chef's knife
  • cutting board
flat lay of artichoke and measuring spoons on white marble


  • 1 can quartered artichoke hearts
  • 1 lemon
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tbsp. olive oil


Step #1: Prep Ingredients

Drain, then rinse artichoke hearts in colander under cold water for about a minute. Cut lemon in half, then manually juice it until there's 1 tbsp of fresh-squeezed juice.

Step #2: Blend It Up

Combine artichoke hearts, lemon juice, garlic powder, and olive oil in blender. Season liberally with salt and pepper. Blend until smooth.

Step #3: Serve And Enjoy!

This dish pairs well with lamb, mixed into your favorite salad or dolloped onto steak. It can even be combined with Greek yogurt to make a savory vegetable dip! We like it cold, but it can be warmed in a skillet for a few minutes if that's your preference.
