Brown Butter Makes Everything Better…

Roasting any type of vegetable brings out its natural sweetness, but then add some brown butter to the mix and you’ve got yourself a side dish worthy of some praise. These Roasted Brown Butter Artichokes are so delicious, they often become the main course at our house because we just eat so darn many of them.

What is brown butter? Brown butter is simply butter that has been cooked until it starts to turn brown. There’s a fine line here, so once the butter starts turning brown, remove it from the heat so that it doesn’t burn. What you end up with is a super flavorful, nutty butter that’s to die for.

How Do You Make Oven Roasted Artichokes?

Start off by roasting the artichoke halves in a baking dish with white wine and chicken broth. Lots of garlic cloves get added in here too, but just smashed, not cut up so the flavor will be milder.

After about 30 minutes the artichokes will come out of the oven tender and cooked through. You can totally eat them at this point just dipped in your favorite sauce or melted butter, but we’re going to take this artichoke recipe one step further.

Roasted Artichokes to make an artichoke side dish

Add butter to a large skillet to brown and then place the roasted artichokes in the skillet cut side down. Cook the artichokes in the brown butter until the edges of the cut side get crispy and brown. This will take about 5 minutes, but keep checking the artichokes to see if they are getting brown, if not just let them cook a few more minutes.

Once the artichokes have browned, remove the skillet from the heat. Drain the cooking broth from the baking dish into a bowl and then place the artichokes back into the baking dish, cut side up. Now you’re going to take the delicious cooking liquid and drizzle it back over the tops of the artichokes. Add a handful of shaved parmesan cheese, more salt and pepper and chopped parsley for garnish.

We’ve also added toasted pignoli nuts (pine nuts) to these artichokes!
