Easy and good for you marinated artichoke hearts that taste like summer with a lemony twist. Gluten free and vegan, marinated the Italian way with healthy extra virgin olive oil, fresh lemon juice, herbs and a touch of garlic.
Marinated Artichoke Hearts
You can choose to steam your own artichokes if they are in season, or go for the canned artichoke hearts in water. Very important that they are packed in water and nothing else.
It takes less than 5 minutes to whisk up this lovely fresh marinade and toss everything together. Best if they are prepared a night before, but a couple of hours of sitting in the fridge will work its magic too. Just remember to bring them to room temperature for about 20 minutes before serving!
If you want to grill the artichoke hearts at this point, I strongly suggest using a veggie tray / basket so you don’t end up losing them in the grill.
They go really well in a spinach artichoke dip, pizza bianca, tossed with aglio e olio pasta, fregola or in this capellini pomodoro. They make a nice topping on focaccia, this summery thin crust Italian pizza or bruschetta,. Throw them in a ricotta frittata, quiche, pasta salad, gratin, serve as an appetizer on this Italian antipasto platter.or turn them into a pasta sauce.
