Artichoke Kebabs


By using small artichokes on skewers you can prepare these otherwise difficult to grill vegetables easily and it makes a great side dish while you grill other things.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes

Yield: Serves 4 to 6 as a side dish


  • 18 small artichokes
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/2 teaspoon thyme
  • salt and pepper


Combine lemon juice, olive oil, thyme and water. Trim stems from artichokes and remove leaves until you get the pale inner leaves. Cut off the thorny tips of the leaves and remove the fibrous parts from around the bottom. If larger than about 1 1/2 inches cut in half lengthwise. Coat with marinade. Thread onto skewers and place on preheated grill (medium heat). Cook for about 15 minutes, or until the bottoms become tender. Turn frequently. When done remove from grill and pour remaining marinade over them with a little salt and pepper.
