Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 45 minutes
Serves: 6 people
3 fresh artichokes
3 tbsp olive oil
Salt & pepper, to taste
6 sprigs of rosemary
6 cloves of garlic, peeled
60g vegan butter
Preheat the oven to 200℃.
Fill a bowl with cool water and add the juice of one lemon.
Prepare the artichokes. Trim the end and remove the loose leaves on the bottom, then trim the pointy ends of the leaves. Halve each artichoke and spoon out the fuzzy ‘choke’, then quickly put the halves face down in your lemon water.
Without shaking off any water, put the artichoke pieces in a baking dish cut side up. Brush with oil and season.
Cut the other lemon into six slices. On each artichoke half, put a lemon slice, a sprig of rosemary and a clove of garlic.
Carefully flip the artichokes over, brush the top with oil and season.
Cover the baking dish with foil and bake for 45 minutes, until the artichoke leaves can be easily pulled off.
In the meantime, melt the butter in a pan.
Once cooked, remove the artichokes from the oven and take the garlic cloves out of the dish.
Mash the garlic with the side of a knife and add to the melted butter.
Serve and enjoy dipping the artichoke leaves into your garlic butter.
