Imagine this, you’re thinking about a something new and healthy to make for dinner, but all you can think of are the tasty but very unhealthy options. We’ve all been there, craving some delicious fried food that we’ll regret later on. With this recipe, you can enjoy the taste of some yummy “fried” food without feeling bloated or tired afterwards. Our “fried” artichoke hearts can be enjoyed for lunch or dinner at anytime of year as an alternative to deep-fried artichokes.

Artichoke hearts have a high amount of free-radical fighting antioxidants, which help your whole system to function more efficiently. They are also a source of the ever-elusive Vitamin K, a nutrient that protects neurons and acts a vasodilator, bringing more oxygen to the brain for increased function. In addition, artichokes are an amazing source of inulin, which promotes the growth of healthy gut bacteria.
