Artichokes are so much better grilled than steamed. To get the most flavor out of these small artichokes you want to give them a quick boil before they hit the grill. This is also a fantastic way to incorporate an open flamed flavor to artichoke dip or pasta dishes. Simply scoop out the artichoke hearts, lightly chop, and use.


  • 1 lemon

  • 8 small artichokes, trimmed and halved

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, plus more for brushing

  • 3 garlic cloves

  • 3 sprigs fresh thyme

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt, or to taste

Steps to Make It

  1. Preheat grill for high heat.

  2. Cut the lemon in half and squeeze out the juice in a bowl. Set aside for later. Cut what remains of the lemon into quarters.

  3. Boil artichokes in water with 2 tablespoons olive oil, garlic, lemon quarters, thyme. Cook until artichokes are just tender.

  4. Remove artichokes from water, set aside for about 5 minutes allowing them to cool slightly.  Blot with paper towel to remove any excess moisture. Brush with more olive oil and place onto the grill.

  5. Grill for 3 to 4 minutes or until they start to brown. Remove from grill, sprinkle with a little lemon juice and season with salt. Serve immediately.

  6. Artichokes will keep for up to 3 days after initial preparation stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator.  Enjoy them cold or rewarm in the microwave.
