If you love artichokes like me, but dislike the preparation and cooking time, then this recipe is definitely for you!
Since artichokes are such a healthy veggie (or thistle) packed with vitamins, minerals and fiber, I try to serve them as often as possible to my family.
Not to mention, it’s one of the only veggies my son will eat loads of. Normally, I buy fresh, cut the ends off, and boil in some lemon water but this process takes quite a while since the cooking time is about 30-40 minutes.
While browsing the frozen section in my local Trader Joe’s, I found frozen artichoke hearts and decided to pick some up and throw them in the air fryer to see how they turn out. Boy, was I glad I did!
These air fried artichoke hearts come out perfectly soft with a slight char on the ends for extra flavor!
They’re a perfect keto low card side or appetizer for quick weeknight dinners! Don’t leave out the miso mayo dipping sauce. It’s so addicting and full of umami, you’ll be dipping everything in it!
