A Girl & Her Food: Grilled Artichokes


Grilled Artichokes

Happy, Girl Meets Grill, Friday! Our neighbor, Colin Chase, grilled artichokes for us years ago. They were smoky, tender, and DELISH! Thanks to him, grilled artichokes became my favorite grilled vegetable. I love eating layer by layer to get to the heart. This is the best way to eat an artichoke and it’s healthy too. Thank you Colin! He shared this recipe with me and you must grill these because you will get "all choked up"


2 large artichokes
1 lemon, quartered
3/4 cup olive oil
4 cloves garlic, chopped
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper


Fill a large bowl with cold water. Squeeze the juice from one lemon wedge into the water. Trim the tops from the artichokes, then cut in half lengthwise, and place halves into the bowl of lemon water to prevent them from turning brown.
Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Meanwhile, preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat.
Add artichokes to boiling water, and cook for about 15 minutes. Drain. Squeeze the remaining lemon wedges into a medium bowl. Stir in the olive oil and garlic, and season with salt and pepper.
Brush the artichokes with a coating of the garlic dip, and place them on the preheated grill. Grill the artichokes for 5 to 10 minutes, basting with dip and turning frequently, until the tips are a little charred. Serve immediately with the remaining dip. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
