This marinated artichoke hearts recipe isn’t as difficult as the cost of the store-bought stuff would lead you to believe. In fact, it’s one of the easier recipes I have and it only takes 10 active minutes. So why the exorbitant expense at the store for a tiny little jar? Beats me.

How To Make Marinated Artichoke Hearts
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
In less than 10 minutes, you can make tender, delicious marinated artichoke hearts that rival any of those you'd buy in the store... but for a fraction of the price!
Recipe type: Vegetable
Serves about: 4
  • 1 9-ounce box or bag of frozen artichoke hearts, thawed
  • ⅓ cup good quality extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves (or ½ tsp. dried thyme leaves)
  • 1 teaspoon fresh oregano (or ½ tsp. dried oregano)
  • ½ teaspoon red chile pepper flakes, crushed
  • 2 tablespoons freshly-squeezed lemon juice (must be fresh!)
  1. Rinse the artichoke hearts under cold water and pat dry.
  2. Over medium heat, combine artichokes, olive oil, salt, thyme, oregano and crushed chile flakes in a non-reactive sauce pan.
  3. Cover and cook 10 minutes, removing lid to stir occasionally.
  4. Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature.
  5. Stir in lemon juice.
  6. Let sit for 30 minutes to allow flavors to meld before storing in freezer for up to 1 year, or in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to 2 months.


Jars of this marinated artichoke hearts recipe make thoughtful hostess gifts. Or keep them for yourself to use in salads, on anti-pasto platters, or in my Mediterranean Stuffed Chicken recipe — if you don’t eat them all straight out of the pan, that is. They’re one of my big weaknesses, I’ll admit!

    This is a great idea – but I’ve never seen frozen artichoke hearts in our stores. That’s what I get for living in a small town! I’ll ask the manager of Piggly Wiggly to get some in. He’s pretty good about things like that. – And THAT’s what I get for living in a small town!

    Thanks for the recipe!

      Hope, I found them at Dillon’s (Kroger’s) in the frozen section, but they were closer to the frozen fruit than veg for some reason. Hope Piggly Wiggly can get some for you. They’re so yummy!
