Crock Pot Lemon Garlic Artichokes

Crock Pot Lemon Garlic Artichokes

I hope your week is off to the right start!  We are finally enjoying some beautiful weather here in Colorado.  
It is the time of year for farmers markets and fresh foods!

My daughter Morgan is only a few months from turning 9 and she is finally developing a more mature food pallet.  It excites me when she trys a food that is not on her typical menu.  She has fallen in love with Crock Pot Lemon Garlic Artichokes.  It is fun for her to scrape the meat of the leaf between her teeth.  She is still working on acquiring a taste for the heart. My husband Scott and I don’t mind that she won’t eat the heart because that means more for us!😀 

Our son Maxwell is 6 years old and the thought of scraping a leaf on his teeth is yucky! Lol  I’ll give him time to come around!😉

When artichokes go on sale, I bring them home and ask Morgan how she would like them prepared.
“I know!  Lemon Garlic Artichokes sound good!”  Is her usual response.
How do you make them?
Let me show you!

Start with the number of Artichokes you have. (3-4 fit best in my crock pot, depending on the size). I have 3 med-large shown above.

Just before the artichokes are done, make some dipping sauces. Shown here are garlic butter, Sriracha Aioli and garlic lemon aioli. (Aioli is a mayonnaise based dip)

They're done! To test, pull a leaf off. If it comes off easily and the meat is tender, they are done.

      You will not be sorry! I am so glad you are going to make these. My family devoured them!

  2. Wow! I have always wanted to use an artichoke in cooking but have not known how to! This is just the perfect post for a beginner like me, with step-wise pictures too. Thank you!

    1. Hi Robin!
      Yes- leave on high!
      They turn out perfect every time!
      If your artichokes are medium sized start checking at the 3 hour mark by pulling a leaf off. If it comes off really easy they are done. The big artichokes take a bit longer!
      I hope you get to try this recipe soon!
