This artichoke recipe is perfect for dinner parties as it can be prepared in advance and just put in the oven 30 minutes before serving.
I came across this recipe on the FOOD52 community, and it was love at first sight. The creator of this recipe is Mindy Arbo and I would like to thank her for posting this incredible recipe.
I love every single ingredient in it, so I decided to give it a try with my fresh artichokes.
A great success.
Cleaning artichokes is not an easy task, and the original recipe is with frozen artichokes, so you can use those if you want to save time.
But if you want to try with fresh ones ( you won’t regret it) and you don’t know how to clean them, here is a video on how.
