Aromatic dressed artichokes. 

For a while now I have been tying to find a way of preparing artichokes in a way that both me and my wife will eat. Well with these aromatic dressed artichokes I found a way.

Now normally I would share an original recipe and write-up my variation on it however for this recipe I can't find one so you will just have to use my recipe.


4 artichoke

1 tablespoon olive oil

1/2 tea-spoon chilli flakes

1/2 tea-spoon oregano

1/2 tea-spoon thyme

1 clove of garlic chopped up small

Black pepper and salt


  1. Fill a pan with water and put on a high heat on the hob and bring to a boil

  2. While pan is coming to boil prepare artichokes by pealing away the tough outers, leaving the white flesh.

  3. Add the artichokes to the pan and reduce heat to simmer. Summer until the artichokes are tender, about twenty minutes.

  4. While artichokes are cooking mix all the other ingredients together in a bowl.

  5. Once artichokes are cooked add two tablespoons of the water to the bowl with all the other ingredients. Drain the artichokes and slice them up.

  6. Put the sliced artichokes into the bowl with the dressing and cover in the dressing.

  7. Serve as a tapas or side dish.

Overall I found this to be a very tasty dish. I liked the flavours and we really liked the artichokes served this way. I also can see there to be plenty of variation that can be done with this such as different herbs and spices.

So give it a go and let me know what you think. Do you have any artichoke recipes you would like me to try, if so get in touch
