How to cook artichokes in a pan

Let's see immediately how to prepare these fantastic roasted artichokes.

  1. First of all, of course, you need to clean them: remove all the external leaves and the internal beard, removing the hard parts which would be unpleasant in the mouth.
  2. As you get your artichoke hearts, leave them to soak in water and lemon, so as not to oxidize the vegetables.
  3. When you have finished this phase, take the artichokes and cut them in half, or in wedges if you prefer.
  4. In a pan, pour the oil and add a clove of garlic, then when it's hot, add the artichokes . Deglaze with the white wine, season with salt and pepper and cook them well (it will take at least 10 minutes at least, but it depends on the size of the artichokes ). When they are soft, turn up the heat and roast one side well.
  5. Add the parsley and serve your artichokes, which as mentioned you can combine with meat, fish or enjoy on their own: enjoy your meal!

Pan-fried artichokes: preparation tips

Never eliminate the step of soaking in water and lemon , even if it may seem superfluous: black (or rather, blackened) artichokes are not a pretty sight and lose a bit in the plating .

If, on the other hand, you want to make frozen artichokes in a pan, it's much simpler: in this case they'll already be cleaned and you'll save some time. Plunge them into a pan over medium heat with oil and herbs to taste, close the lid and wait 10 minutes, which will be enough for them to defrost. Then raise the heat and continue cooking for a maximum of 5/10 minutes.

We recommend consuming fresh artichokes cooked in a pan in slices or wedges at the moment , when they are still hot and delicious. We do not recommend freezing in the freezer.
