Roast Artichoke Hearts For A Crispy Snack Or Side
Artichoke hearts have a unique blend of lightly sweet, tangy, and earthy flavors, and the best way to showcase these flavors is by roasting artichoke hearts on their own.
When roasted, artichokes develop crispy edges that complement their tender, meaty centers. They will also caramelize in the oven for an even more complex, satisfying flavor.
To simplify the recipe, start with jarred or canned artichokes, which require almost no prep and are likely already marinated with spices and oil, ensuring a flavorful bite.
Make sure to dry the artichoke hearts as much as possible before you season and cook them. This is crucial if you want them to brown and crisp up in the oven.
For extra dimension, add garlic, fresh herbs, parmesan, and breadcrumbs to your artichoke hearts, and then serve on their own, alongside meat, or with other roasted veggies.
