Grilled Garlic Artichokes - No Need for Mayo

You know spring has sprung when it’s time to for artichokes. And a great way to cook artichokes once the weather gets warm is by grilling them. My husband loves eating artichokes with mayo, but with this recipe you can skip the mayo and eat them with the leftover basting sauce.

  • 2 large artichokes
  • 1 lemon - cut in quarted wedges
  • 3/4 cup of olive oil
  • 4 cloves of garlic - chopped
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon of ground lemon pepper

Bring a large pot of water to a boil and preheat an outdoor grill to medium-high heat. Add the artichokes to boiling water, and cook for about 15 minutes and drain. Squeeze lemon wedges into a medium bowl. Stir in the olive oil and garlic, and season with salt and lemon pepper.

Brush the artichokes with a coating of the garlic dip, and place them on the preheated grill. Grill the artichokes for about 10 minutes, basting with the dip and turning frequently, until the tips are a little charred. Serve immediately with the remaining dip.
