Looking for some inspiration to use frozen or canned artichoke hearts? Try one of these delicious, healthy artichoke heart recipes for your next meal, appetizer or side!
Especially during the peak spring season, there's no beating fresh artichokes (especially pan fried and served with a white wine sauce and burrata). But they're also a lot of work to prepare for relatively little reward, especially if you need a lot of hearts to use in a recipe. That's where canned artichoke hearts come in. Canned artichoke hearts offer a convenient way to get your artichoke fix, whether artichokes are out of season, or you're short on time and trying to get a delicious meal on the table. I always have a can on hand to throw into a salad or dip at a moment's notice. Frozen artichoke hearts are also a great option for most of these recipes, if that's what you prefer.
Which canned artichokes to buy - in brine or marinated?
For the most part, I prefer to stick to artichokes in brine - which is just a solution of water and salt. This allows for more control over flavor and oil. Though some recipes call for marinated artichokes - which are soaked in a oil and spices - as a simple shortcut.
