Grilled Artichokes – Tuscan


4 medium to large whole artichokes


1.5 cups olive oil

5 tablespoons Tuscan Bread-Dip Seasoning (

Aioli (prepare ahead of time and refrigerate)

3/4 Cup mayonnaise

2 teaspoons worcestershire sauce

1-2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice

1 teaspoon Tuscan Bread-Dip Seasoning (

**if you want a kick, add a touch of chili paste**

Cooking Instructions

1. Bring a large cauldron (or large sauce pan) filled with approximately 10 quarts of water to boil. Add 1.5 teaspoons salt.

2. Cut stems to within 1/2 inch; then slice artichokes in half lengthwise with a butcher knife. Cut 3/4 inch off the top of the artichokes to remove the tips of the prickly leaves.

3. Once water comes to a boil, add halved artichokes face up for 30 minutes, dunking occasionally.

4. After 30 minutes, turn halved artichokes face down for 15 minutes. Test doneness by tapping the heart with a fork or spoon until tender to the touch.


5. Remove from water and place on a cooling rack (heart side down) to drain for 20 minutes.

6. While waiting, take 2 gallon-sized ziplocks and fill each bag with:

• 3/4 cup olive oil

• 2 tablespoons Tuscan Bread-Dip Seasoning

7. After cooling, remove fuzz from the insides of the artichokes, along with any internal leaves that are loose.


8. Place 4 artichoke halves into each ziplock bag, coating with the marinade. Marinade a MINIMUM of 2 hours, preferably overnight.

9. Heat BBQ grill to ~400 degrees. Coat grate with Pam so the artichokes don’t stick. Place heart side UP and grill for 5 minutes. Flip heart side DOWN and grill for another 5 minutes, or until the heart is golden brown and slightly crispy.

10. Remove from heat; serve with aioli!!

    Anita,  This is my nephew’s recipe.  It is the best artichoke I’ve ever eaten in my life!  We beg him to make them every time there’s a family visit.  Don’t even need the aioli!!
