Garlicky Artichokes

When they’re in season, artichokes are eaten like candy here. I’ve cooked them a gazillion different ways and so far, this is our favorite.

Adapted from Emeril’s Boiled Artichokes

Serve with your favorite dip. We prefer melted butter but you can use thousand island dressing, vinaigrette, ranch or even Hummus or Tzatziki sauce.

This method of cooking artichokes is hands down, our favorite. I am always trying different ways because we eat them so often when they're in season but I keep coming back to Emeril's recipe. His seems to be the most flavorful.


  • 8 cloves chopped garlic
  • 4 bay leaves
  • 3 tablespoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons whole black peppercorns
  • 4 large globe artichokes, about 10 ounces each
  • 1 lemon, cut in half



Fill the pot with 2" of water


Bring the water, bay leaves, salt, and peppercorns to a boil in a large pot.


Slice bottom stems off and with kitchen shears, trim tips of leaves where thorn is.


Salt & pepper tops of artichokes and smear with garlic.


Add the artichokes and lemons to pan and return to a boil. My artichokes usually take about 45 minutes but I test them by pulling out one of the leaves..should come out easily. Or...Emeril says they are ready when you can pierce the bottom without resistance.


Drain in a colander and let the artichokes sit until cool enough to handle.
