We HaMarinated Artichokes

10 uses for Marinated Artichokes

1. Use as a pizza topping. Dry and sprinkle them onto the pizza after the cheese, then bake the pie as you normally would. The artichoke’s flavor plays well with mozzarella, thinly sliced red onion, and fresh rosemary.
2. Make a spinach-artichoke dip. Defrost frozen spinach and wring it out to remove excess moisture. Combine spinach with artichokes, enough mayonnaise to moisten generously, grated Parmesan cheese, and lots of black pepper. Put the mixture into an oven safe bowel, top with more grated Parmesan, and bake at 375 degrees until golden brown. Serve with pita chips, crusty bread, or the chip of your choice.
3. Make crostini: toast bread, spread ricotta, top with artichokes, season with lemon zest and flaky salt.
4. Sauté with capers and pour the mixture over pan-seared or baked fish. Since the sauce’s flavors are pretty strong, go with a mild, flaky white fish.
5. Roast with large-diced potatoes. Basically just toss them both with olive oil and roast for 30–35 minutes at 425 degrees.
6. Use in risotto. When the rice is done cooking, stir them in thoroughly, let warm, and eat.
7. Make a warm vinaigrette: sauté chopped artichokes and shallots in olive oil, finish with lemon juice. Toss, still warm, with a sturdy green like kale or mustard greens, and serve immediately.
8. Use in an omelet with some feta cheese.
9. Make a quick gratin by putting them into a baking dish, sprinkling with Gruyère and breadcrumbs, and baking at 400 until the cheese is melted and the artichokes are warmed through.
10. Make an antipasto platter for dinner party guests: artichokes, salumi, cheese, olives. In other words, take the artichokes out of the jar and put them on a plate with all of that other stuff.
11. just eat them straight out of the jar.
