How to make roasted artichoke hearts
(Note: this is a quick description, the full recipe is at the bottom of the page)
- Cut each artichoke heart into quarters and pat them dry. They must be fully drained before breading, otherwise the breading will become soggy.
- Mix olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, salt, pepper and herbs in a bowl.
- Gently toss the artichokes with the olive oil marinade.
- Transfer the artichoke hearts onto a large baking pan.
- Top each artichoke with a mix of breadcrumbs and parmesan cheese.
- Drizzle with some olive oil and roast them in the hot oven for 20 minutes.
What’s in these roasted artichoke hearts
Artichoke hearts: I use canned artichoke hearts as they are already cooked through and ready to go. You’re welcome to use frozen, but thaw them first.
Marinade: extra virgin olive oil, lemon juice, convenient garlic powder and dried parsley add so much flavor to the plain artichokes. You can also use Italian herb seasoning, oregano, or basil instead of parsley.
Breadcrumbs: to add a lovely crispy, crunchy texture when baked. You can make these roasted artichoke hearts gluten-free by using a gluten-free bread crumb mixture.
Parmesan cheese: it brings its rich, nutty and salty flavor, but If you wish a dairy-free option, you can skip the cheese.
Salt and pepper: for flavor.
Important tip: drain the artichokes and pat them dry well otherwise the breadcrumb mixture will become soggy, and bye-bye golden crispy coating!

Roasted Artichoke Hearts
- 1 can artichoke hearts, fully drained

- ½ teaspoon dried parsley or Italian seasoning (or your fav herbs)
- ¼ teaspoon garlic powder (or ½ garlic clove, finely grated)
- ⅙ teaspoon fine salt

- Cut each artichoke heart into quarters, pat them dry with kitchen paper, then add them to the marinade and toss gently to coat.
- Transfer the artichoke hearts onto a baking dish lined with parchment paper, and top them with breadcrumb mixture, gently pressing the coating with your fingers (you want the breadcrumbs to stick to the artichokes).
