Herbed Grilled Artichokes (Vegan, Gluten-Free)

Sharon Palmer

One of my favorite plant-powered side dishes or appetizers is fragrant, crispy Herbed Grilled Artichokes. This Mediterranean-style dish is so flavorful, yet is just packed with powerful nutrients—such as fiber, protein, vitamins C and K, folate, and phytochemicals. Even my kids love a good grilled artichoke! Especially when I marinate them in this garlic-herb vinaigrette and grill them outdoors. It’s so easy and a wonderful way to start your outdoor meal or dinner party. Follow along with my step-by-step guide for How to Grill Artichokes here.

Artichokes grow really well in the sunny climate of my bioregion in California, and I have them growing in my garden each year. You can also find this vegetable at the farmers market during the warmer months, and at most supermarkets. With only 4 ingredients, not including pantry staples, you can get this delicious dish done in minutes. Then let people enjoy it—slowly peeling off the leaves on at a time—with a glass of chilled chardonnay or mineral water.

  1. Trim the top portion of the artichokes tops and the stems. Slice in half. With a metal spoon, scoop out the blossom portion of the artichokes in the center.
  2. Place trimmed artichokes in a medium pot with water and cook 10 minutes, until almost tender.
  3. Place precooked artichokes in a baking dish.
  4. Whisk together remaining ingredients in a small dish to create a vinaigrette.
  5. Drizzle the vinaigrette over the artichokes and allow to marinate for about 30 minutes.
  6. Grill the artichokes on a hot grill, first with outside facing the heat for a few minutes, and then turn them over and grill for an additional 5 minutes, until golden brown.
  7. Serve immediately.


You can also roast this recipe in an oven at 375 F for about 10-15 minutes instead of grilling it in step 6.
