  • 2 large artichokes
  • 1/4 dry white wine
  • 4 garlic cloves, crushed
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 6 sprigs thyme


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.Pour the wine, lemon juice, garlic cloves, and thyme into a shallow casserole dish.Place the artichokes on a work surface
  2. Cut off the top 1/3
  3. Pluck the outer leaves off until they start turning a greenish-yellow
  4. At this point, you should have eliminated most of the leaves that still have their spiky tips
  5. If not, trim the tops off the remaining spiky leaves with scissors.Using a peeler, remove the outer layer of the stalks of the artichoke
  6. Cut the artichokes in half lengthwise
  7. Working quickly, remove the choke: pull out the very small purplish leaves at the very center – this will make it easier to spoon out the choke (the fur at the center of the artichokes)
  8. Using a grapefruit spoon, if possible, scrape out the fur
  9. When clean, flip around in the braising liquid to cover and arrange cut-side down to prevent the centers from browning
  10. Repeat with remaining artichokes.Drizzle the chokes with olive oil and season with the salt
  11. Cover with foil and roast in the oven until tender when pieced with a fork, about 30 to 40 minutes
  12. Remove foil and allow to cool slightly
  13. Serve with the braising liquid, and lemon wedges and parsley for garnish.
