Artichokes. Seriously, could I know any less about a particular vegetable? Sure, I could. Wikipedia artichokes, learn everything there is to know, but sometimes,  I like to let things remain a mystery.

However, Handsome loves artichokes. That’s right – the same man who won’t touch onions, winces over green beans, won’t touch a carrot, and will leave a pile of celery at the bottom of a bowl – love’s artichokes. And, we all know what we will do for those we care about, especially if artichokes magically appear in the shopping cart when you are both on a quick in and out trip together. This girl can take a hint.

So, without knowing anything about fresh artichokes, I set out to make Handsome grilled artichokes, something I knew he would enjoy. Mainly because I knew he would not be too thrilled when he saw the main course – play your cards well, ladies.  Luckily, I had saved this recipe a while ago, knowing my time to bond with artichokes would someday arrive.

Making grilled artichokes from this recipe was rather instructional and easy to follow.*

*Up until that part that clearly says to scoop out the choke. As you can tell by my pictures, I missed that part. 😉

This is exactly what I was looking for! I'm new to artichokes and was looking for something other than mayo to dip them in. Thank you! We'd love it if you would link up your recipe at seasonalpotluck.com March is artichoke month! https://bit.ly/zRfNjo

I totally know what you mean, I learned how to roast and carve a whole chicken, braise meat, and make a mean steak long before I lost my vegetarian label. But, I absolutely love artichokes and this looks like it's right up my alley!!

I have always wanted to know how to grill an artichoke. Didn't realize it was so easy! I agree with Handsome, artichokes are deeeelish. I dip mine in Spectrum mayonnaise. The best!

I'm fairly new to artichokes, but I had them grill twice this year and loved them. I'm eager to give these guys a try!

I hope Handsome knows how good you are to him!!! We have it the other way around at our house...hubby wouldn't touch an artichoke with a 10 foot pole, but I certainly would take seconds of your beautiful grilled numbers. Artichokes have to be the most photogenic vegetable ever...and you certainly did them justice~
