Fried Artichokes Recipe - Low Carb & Healthy

Low carb recipe for Fried Artichokes which belongs to the Sides recipe category.

Ingredients Needed

  1. 1 large artichoke
  2. Olive oil
  3. Lemon wedges
  4. Salt

Cooking Instructions

Cut about 1 inch (2.

5 cm) off the top of your artichoke, trim the stem, and pull off the bottom few rows of leaves.

Now slice it vertically down the center.

You'll see the "choke"?the fuzzy, inedible part at the center.

Using the tip of a spoon, scrape every last bit of this out (it pulls off of the yummy bottom part of the artichoke quite easily).

In a large, heavy skillet, heat 1 inch (2.

5 cm) of olive oil over medium-high heat.

When the oil is hot, add your cleaned artichoke, flat side down.

Fry for about 10 minutes, turning over halfway through.

It should be tender and just starting to brown a bit.

Drain on paper towels or a brown paper bag.

Serve the artichoke halves with lemon wedges to squeeze over them and salt to sprinkle on them to taste.
