Pan Fried Artichokes-Shared By Chef Amanda De La Vega

“Ok, here’s another thrown-together-after-work recipe.  I had some leftover canned artichokes (I know, I know… I should have used fresh artichoke. I’m lazy, don’t judge me) laying around as well as my freshly made avocado mayonnaise so I decided to whip something up with them.”-Amanda

What you’ll need:

  • 1 can artichoke quarters (drained and rinsed)
  • 1-2 tsp coconut flour (*coconut flour may leave a different aftertaste so if you aren’t used to it you may just want to use regular flour or almond flour)
  • 2-3 tbsp ghee or pastured butter
  • salt

How to make it:

  1. Place the artichoke quarters in a bowl.  Toss with salt and coconut flour.
  2. Heat the butter or ghee in a pan and add in the artichokes.  Fry until golden brown on each side.
  3. Serve with avocado mayonnaise.

*These won’t come out crispy like a restaurant-style deep fried artichoke might.  It will just have a little crunch to it.
