Marinated Artichoke Hearts

  • 1 bag of frozen artichoke hearts
  • 2 cloves of garlic (finely chopped)
  • Zest and Juice of 1 lemon
  • Olive Oil
  • Fresh basil
  • salt
  • Pepper
  • Airtight container

(Some of my ingredients including one huge clove of garlic instead of two regular)


Thaw artichokes in a bowl of water.  While those are thawing, finely chop garlic and basil, and zest the whole lemon.  After artichokes are thawed, cut them into bite sized pieces.  Drizzle olive oil in pan, and over medium heat, add garlic (don't over cook, it browns really fast).  Then add artichokes, lemon zest, and basil.  Season with salt and pepper. 

While the atrichokes cook, juice the lemon into the container you will be storing them in.  After this, take artichokes off the heat and scoop them into your container.  Add a little more olive oil.  Stir up the ingredients. (Or if you use a jar like I did, put the lid on and shake it up a little to incorporate ingredients) 

Let sit over night in the fridge before eating and enjoying.  :-)
