  • 4 artichokes, trimmed
  • 1 lemon, cut in half
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil [EVOO]
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • salt, to taste
  • 1/4 cup chicken stock
  • water


  1. Rinse Artichokes with water. Trim artichoke stem so 1 inch remains and then cut off top inch of artichoke so heart is slightly showing

  2. Place into slow cooker with tops pointing up using ramekins to prop them up, if necessary. Pull apart the petals to open up the artichoke

  3. Squeeze lemon evenly over artichokes. Then drizzle olive oil over artichokes and sprinkle garlic and salt.

  4. Pour approximately 1/4 cup of chicken stock into bottom of crock pot. Add water until there is 1 inch of liquid in the slow cooker, don't worry about covering the bottom of the artichokes with water

  5. Cover & cook on low for 4 - 6 hours (smaller artichokes will cook faster)
