Lemon cream artichokes

This simple, yet fantastic lemony side dish is deceiving. How can something so easy, taste so good and look so impressive on a plate? Dr. Sarah Hallberg’s husband, Brad, gets the credit for creating this tasty dish. This has become one of my family’s favorites, and is easy enough to make my list for weeknight dinner sides.

  • 1 1 large lemon
  • ¾ cup 175 ml heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tbsp 1 tbsp fresh thyme
  • 1 cup 225 ml freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 tsp 1 tsp ground black pepper

Instructions

Instructions are for 4 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. Rinse, strain, and pat dry the artichokes. Place them in a 9” x 9” (23 x 23 cm) baking dish.
  3. Pour cream evenly over the artichokes. Grate the zest from the lemon and set aside.
  4. Juice the lemon and drizzle the juice over the cream and artichokes. Evenly sprinkle the grated parmesan over the artichokes.
  5. Top the dish with the lemon zest, thyme and black pepper.
  6. Bake for approximately 25 to 30 minutes until lightly browned and the dish has thickened.

Tip!

You can use fresh, jarred, or canned artichokes just be sure to avoid those packaged in oils. You can also add cooked shredded chicken or seafood to this dish to make it a full meal.

You can also use pecorino cheese instead of parmesan.

While fresh thyme is what makes this dish really flavorful, you can use 1 teaspoon of dried thyme.

    I have this baking in my oven right now, what a great and unusual recipe! I wanted to note that it can still be a ‘full meal’ without adding meat or seafood. I’m not a vegetarian but a meatless meal option sometimes is fine, and with flavors like these, imo meat isn’t needed. Looking forward to having this for lunch with some greens. On days I am not sticking to LCHF meal plans, a nice crusty bread would go well. Thank you for this recipe- I’ll post pics when ready!

    Wondering if this can be prepped in advance and frozen in a casserole dish for a future meal?

    Refrigeration would be a better choice than freezing. Dishes with cream or cheese tend to separate when thawed and re-heated. It won't affect taste though, just texture.
