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