Spring is artichoke season and no one is a bigger fan of artichokes than I am, so I gathered my favorites for this collection of 10 Amazing Low-Carb Recipes with Artichokes! Use Recipe Round-Ups to find more low-carb round-ups like this one!
I know tomorrow is St. Patrick’s Day but I’ve already reminded you about slow cooker corned beef, pressure cooker corned beef, corned beef leftovers, and even cabbage to cook with the corned beef. So it felt like time to move on to another of my favorite spring foods: Artichokes! Who else is a huge artichoke fan like I am? I’m sharing my favorite ways to eat them in this collection of 10 Amazing Low-Carb Recipes with Artichokes!
I have fond childhood memories of those rare times when my mom would cook artichokes for the family, and each child would get 1/2 of an artichoke that’s we’d dip into my mom’s simple dipping sauce. And then years later I learned the trick of cooking artichokes in the pressure cooker, which has definitely increased my fresh artichoke consumption! I’m a fan of canned artichoke hearts as well, which I try to buy at Costco when I can because they’re a pricey item otherwise. Luckily it doesn’t take too many artichokes to bump up the flavor in a salad, breakfast casserole, or vegetable side dish.
And artichokes are really quite nutritious! Every if you eat a giant fresh one, artichokes are low in carbs, and also have a lot of fiber to lower the net carbs. Definitely the arrival of less-expensive artichokes in the grocery store is something I look forward to every spring. I hope after you’re through celebrating St. Patrick’s Day you’ll remember this collection of low-carb artichoke recipes and try some of them! And if you’re still hungry for more, check out the category for Artichoke Recipes on the blog.
