Ninja Foodi Artichoke

One of our absolute favorite things to eat are artichokes.  I don’t know if I like the actual artichoke or the butter and garlic better!  For some reason I crave them and need to cook them every couple of weeks.  They have become our guilty pleasure for sure (mine and Kaleigh’s).  I have always boiled artichokes…until now!  When I boil them, I become pretty impatient and often find myself taking them out of the water before they have finished cooking.  Why do they take so long??  If you are impatient and want really good artichokes, then you have to try cooking them in your Ninja Foodi!  This is a game changer!

Tips for this recipe:

  • To double check to make sure that your artichoke is cooked, stick a fork in the stem.  If it’s soft, then your artichoke is finished cooking.
  • Eat the heart!!  When I was a kid, I use to give my mom the heart because I thought…gross!  It’s hairy and prickly, I’m not eating that!!  Do it!  Yes, it’s hairy and prickly, yes it’s a bit of work, YES IT’S WORTH IT!
  • Use a spoon to scrape off the prickles from the heart.  Once you get a good start at it, the rest will come off easily.
  • Don’t eat the prickly hairs.  Are you sensing a theme here?
  • Serve with SALTED butter.  It may not be as healthy, but it is 10000 times better tasting.
  • Add lemon to the Ninja Foodi or squeeze on top of cooked artichokes for additional flavor.
