I first learned how to bake an artichoke from watching Adeena Sussman and I have been baking artichokes ever since! No need to steam, boil, or microwave. Just prep those chokes and roast to perfection.
How do you prep an artichoke?
First things first, you are definitely going to need to break down the artichokes. I have a tutorial where you can see step-by-step how that process works by clicking on the link below.
What part of the artichoke do you bake?
Once the artichokes are prepped and chokes removed you will bake the remaining halves of the artichoke, cut side up. Essentially creating little muffin tin type wells with the artichokes themselves. These "cups" allow us to nestle aromatics and seasonings right into the artichoke itself, which just happens to create lots of flavor.
How to season baked artichokes.
Garlic, lemon, and a splash of dry white wine! Seriously, it is that easy. Just drizzle a bit of regular or garlic-infused olive oil into each artichoke, season with salt and pepper, then pop a slice of lemon and a clove of garlic into the middle of each artichoke half.
Add a little wine and water drizzle in the bottom of the pan before sealing it shut and roasting everything in the oven.
What temperature do you bake an artichoke at?
You will need to preheat your oven to 425°F for baking artichokes.
How long do you bake an artichoke for?
Cooking time for baking an artichoke typically will depend on your oven and the artichokes size. Anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour should do the trick. Just make sure you check your artichokes frequently after the 45 minute mark to avoid overcooking.
What do you bake an artichoke in?
I bake my artichokes in nonreactive, oven-safe casserole pans where I can nestle them closely together.
Do I need to cover the dish when baking artichokes?
Yes, you need to cover the artichokes when they are baking. Tinfoil works best. Covering the entire dish tightly ensures that the steam doesn't escape while they are baking.
If you have tried baking artichokes and found this recipe helpful I would be so grateful if you would rate the recipe and let me know what you think in the comments below!Print

4 artichoke halves, from 2 whole artichokes that have been cleaned, prepped, and the chokes removed.
1 large lemon
4 large cloves garlic, smashed
⅓ cup olive oil
¼ cup dry white wine
¼ cup water
coarse kosher salt or coarsely ground black pepper to taste.
Preheat the oven to 425F.
Prep and clean the artichokes as directed in this post.
Place the prepared artichokes faceup in a small glass baking dish. Cut the lemon in half and cut one of the halves into quarters. Squeeze the half of a lemon over the artichoke halves. Place a lemon quarters into each of the 4 artichoke halves along with a garlic clove.
Drizzle the olive oil over the artichokes, season generously with salt and pepper, then pour the wine and water into the bottom of the pan.
Seal tightly with foil, and roast the artichokes in the oven until they are cooked through and tender, about 45-55 minutes.
Remove the pan from the oven and uncover. Serve immediately with your favorite artichoke dipping sauce or mash the roasted garlic cloves with a bit of olive oil, salty, pepper, and lemon juice to create a lovely dipping sauce.
