7 Artichoke Recipes You Really Have to Try ...


Artichokes aren’t something I cook with all the time, so when I began my hunt for artichoke recipes I was pleasantly surprised with the wide range of things to make with them. That’s great because artichokes are full of fiber so they satisfy hunger with very few calories. They’ve also got a flavor that can’t be matched. Try one of these artichoke recipes to impress your friends and family.

Tuna, Artichoke and Basil Stuffed Potatoes

This is one of my favorite artichoke recipes because it combines so many delicious flavors on one of my favorite foods – baked potatoes. This recipe has a lot more going for it though. It’s got lots of fresh ingredients and it’s loaded with vitamins and minerals. You just can’t go wrong!


4 medium potatoes, scrubbed

2 - 5 to 6-ounce cans light tuna

¾ cup nonfat plain yogurt

½ cup plus 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil, divided

1 6-ounce jar marinated artichoke hearts, drained and chopped

2 scallions, chopped

1 tablespoon capers, rinsed

¼ teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

¾ cup shredded provolone cheese

1 plum tomato, finely chopped


Bake the potatoes in the microwave (pierce with a fork first) on medium for about 20 minutes, or until soft. Use the potato setting if you have one. In a bowl, combine the tuna, yogurt, basil, artichoke hearts, scallions, capers, salt and pepper. Cut the top third off each potato, scoop out the insides and add to the tuna mixture. Use a fork to mash the potato into the tuna. Scoop an even amount of the potato mixture back into the skins and top with cheese. Microwave until melted, about 30 seconds. Serve garnished with tomato and extra basil.
