Ingredients:
  • 1 can (14 ounces) artichoke hearts, rinsed and drained (or use frozen, defrosted)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Juice of ½ large lemon (1 to 2 tablespoons)
  • ½ teaspoon oregano
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • ⅛ teaspoon black pepper
  • Pinch of sea salt
Preparation:

Preheat oven to 400˚. Pat artichoke hearts dry on paper towels to remove excess water.

In a medium bowl, combine olive oil, lemon juice and remaining seasonings. Add artichokes to bowl and stir to evenly coat.
