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
- measuring cups
- Chef’s knife
- cutting board
- 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.
