Minty Mediterranean Artichokes

Stealing the show with lemon and mint, this artichoke dish brightens any meal. We especially like it paired with grilled meat or fish alongside some crunchy fennel salad. All these flavors bring me right back to Italy!

  1. 2 cans artichoke hearts (I like Native Forest) - you can also use about 18 trimmed, fresh baby artichokes
  2. 1 lemon, halved
  3. 1/4 cup olive oil
  4. 3 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  5. Celtic sea salt
  6. 1 1/2 cups dry white wine (such as Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Bianco)
  7. 2 tablespoons drained capers
  8. 1/2 cup torn fresh mint leaves
  9. 3 tablespoons fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves
  1. Drain artichokes and set stem side up on a paper towel-lined baking sheet. Let stand about 2 minutes to drain; pat dry.
  2. Heat oil in a wide heavy pot over medium-high heat.
  3. Add artichokes and turn heat to medium-low.
  4. Squeeze 1/2 lemon over artichokes.
  5. Scatter garlic and salt over artichokes and cook until garlic is golden (2-3 mins)
  6. Add the wine! (then drink a glass 😉 and reduce heat
  7. Simmer for 10-15 mins if using canned artichokes or cover and simmer for 25-30 mins if using fresh artichokes.
  8. Add capers and bring to a boil until wine has evaporated, about 2 minutes.
  9. Add mint and parsley and cook for about 3 mins. (you can reduce the heat if necessary to prevent scorching)
  10. Serve artichokes warm or room temperature, drizzled with pan juices.
