Artichokes are a great vegetable to cook because they are both delicious and healthy.
While fresh artichokes are great, they’re also very expensive and difficult to find in many places.
Because of this, many people turn to canned artichokes. While these canned artichokes aren’t quite as tender or flavorful as fresh artichokes, they still provide a great taste.
These delicious and easy recipes will teach you how to use these amazing vegetables to add variety to your meal plan.
So, what are you waiting for? Start making these canned artichoke recipes today and discover the amazing world of canned artichokes.
Why Consider Using Canned Artichoke Recipes?
Artichokes are delicious and make for a filling, satisfying dish.
And while the vegetable isn’t necessarily easy to prepare, it is quite tasty.
But artichokes can be challenging to cook – they need to be cooked at specific temperatures and times to achieve the best results.
This can be problematic for some people, and it can be even more challenging if you’re cooking a large batch of artichokes.
Canned artichokes can make for a quick and easy solution.
They can be used in all sorts of dishes to add flavor, moisture, and texture.
As a result, they are a perfect addition to many different dishes.
And, as with other canned vegetables, they don’t require much preparation to work.
All you need to do is pop the lid off, open the can, and start using it.
You can also freeze the leftover artichokes and use them later to add flavor to soups, stews, or casseroles.
31 Easy Canned Artichoke Recipes
Canned artichokes are a staple at my house during the winter. With this post I’ll share my top 31 favorite recipes that I use for a quick meal that will fill your belly with all kinds of deliciousness.
Here are some recipes for canned artichoke that will have you enjoying this healthy vegetable all year long.
1. Roasted Artichokes
If you have canned artichokes sitting in your fridge, then it’s time to use them up.
This recipe is great if you don’t have much time or you just want something fast and easy to make.
You can easily make this recipe using artichokes that you can purchase from the grocery store.
The artichokes are a favorite in the Mediterranean and they’re great for adding a savory flavor to dishes.
2. Steamed Artichokes
This is a great recipe for those who like to eat something nutritious without sacrificing flavor.
It also comes in handy when you’re in a pinch for time.
In this recipe, you can use the canned artichoke hearts in water or add them to salads.
You can also use the recipe to make the sauce for pasta as well.
3. “No Fuss” Easy Baked Artichokes
This is a perfect recipe for those who love artichokes, but don’t have the time or energy to bake them fresh.
Canned artichokes are a great addition to your meal because they’re so easy to prepare.
You can use the canned artichokes straight out of the can, but if you want to get a little fancy, you can make them in the oven too.
This is a great recipe for those who are trying to reduce the number of dishes they’re making.
To make the dish more decadent, you can also top the artichokes with some Parmesan cheese.
4. Italian-style roasted artichokes
Canned artichokes are an easy way to get a flavorful, delicious, and nutritious side dish without having to cook any of it.
You’ll just need to drain the liquid from the can, add some olive oil, salt and pepper, and put it in the oven.
After baking, you’ll have an amazing and healthy side dish in a fraction of the time.
5. Spinach Artichoke Dip
If you’ve ever tried making artichoke dip, you’ll know that it is not an easy dish to master. However, canned artichokes make the whole process a lot easier, as they are already cooked and ready to eat, so all you have to do is warm them up and stir in some cheese and spinach.
You can serve this in a bowl with plenty of crusty bread or crackers on the side, or you can even spoon it straight into your mouth like I do! It’s also really quick and easy to prepare, and it will keep for up to two weeks in the fridge.
6. Artichoke Soup
I love making this soup when I’m feeling particularly fancy, as it’s really satisfying and is perfect served hot or cold. The canned artichoke hearts lend a lovely sweetness and depth of flavour that complements the savoury, salty flavours of the soup perfectly.
You could of course make this using fresh artichokes if you prefer, but they need to be cooked first, so it’s much more time consuming and it won’t look quite as pretty. I love serving this soup alongside slices of crusty bread.
7. Italian Stuffed Artichokes
You can use either fresh or canned artichokes for this dish, though I find that the latter work better. They tend to be more tender and they’re also very easy to prepare!
Just remove the tough outer leaves, stuff the inside with cheese and a selection of other tasty ingredients, and bake for an hour. Serve with a side salad.
8. Spinach Artichoke Pizza
A spinach and artichoke pizza works really well with a large portion of ramen noodles. To prepare it, just lay out some spinach leaves on your favourite pizza base, top with a layer of canned artichoke hearts, a sprinkling of grated parmesan cheese, and some basil leaves.
Then, drizzle over a small amount of balsamic vinegar and some olive oil before placing under the grill for a few minutes.
9. Spinach Artichoke Grilled Cheese
I love this recipe because it combines two of my favourite things: bread and artichokes. The combination of the creamy melted cheese and the crunchy grilled bread is just irresistible.
I make this a little bit different by using baby spinach instead of mature spinach and adding a pinch of nutmeg to give it a little extra zing. You can make it more filling by topping it with some ham or salami, too.
10. Italian Marinated Artichoke Salad
There are a number of different recipes out there for marinated artichoke salads, but I particularly like this one as it really lets the artichokes shine. I like to serve it on a bed of arugula or rocket, which adds some colour and freshness to the plate.
It’s so easy to make, too, and you can use whatever herbs you have lying around in your garden or at the supermarket. Just remember to add the oil to the dish before serving it to ensure that the artichokes don’t become soggy.
11. Spinach Artichoke Pasta
If you’re making this dish, you’re probably not doing it from scratch, which means you can skip the hassle of washing pasta. Just drain the canned artichokes, chop them roughly, and add them to a large pot with plenty of hot water. Bring to the boil, then let the pot simmer for a few minutes before you add the spinach.
Cook until wilted, stirring occasionally to ensure it doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pan. Once the spinach has wilted, drain the water off the pasta, and add it to the pot. Add a bit more water to ensure that the pasta cooks thoroughly, and serves up a rich, creamy side dish that’s as simple to make as it is delicious!
12. Lemon Butter Pasta with Canned Artichokes and Capers
This is another really simple dish that you can put together in no time at all. Just drain the canned artichokes, chop them roughly, and place them in a large frying pan with a bit of butter and some freshly grated Parmesan cheese.
Cook for a few minutes, then add some freshly squeezed lemon juice, and serve alongside your ramen.
13. Spinach Artichoke Tarts
Canned artichokes are one of my favourite ingredients! I love the tangy, salty flavour they bring to salads and soups, but I’ve also been known to treat them to baked goods.
These tasty little tarts are filled with a mixture of spinach and artichoke, topped with a crispy layer of breadcrumbs, and baked in the oven for a couple of minutes. Once you’ve sliced them open, they make a great finger food option that you can easily eat alongside a bowl of soup or pasta.
14. Artichoke and Olive Tapenade
You can’t go wrong with an olive tapenade recipe, as it makes a really tasty accompaniment to so many different dishes. This one is a little different from most of the others in that you don’t have to start with olives, but if you’d rather, then by all means use them.
In fact, I’d recommend trying both ways and seeing what you prefer. For those of you who are new to tapenade, this one is packed full of flavour, and it’s made with only a handful of ingredients!
15. Roasted Garlic Artichoke Olive Dip
Canned artichoke hearts work really well here, and they’re the perfect accompaniment for this light and zingy dip.
It’s easy to make as well, and it’s an excellent way to introduce some vegetarian recipes to your dinner guests. The combination of the flavours of the roasted garlic, olive oil, and the creamy cheese sauce makes for a deliciously indulgent dip.
16. Spinach Artichoke Quinoa Stuffed Peppers
You can also make these with spinach and cannellini beans (See Also: Canned Cannellini Beans Recipes) instead of quinoa. If you’re serving them as a side dish, you could even serve them with a dip like this one instead of a cheese topping.
As an alternative, they can also be used as a filling for stuffed pasta, or as a canape. They’re really versatile, so you can really tailor them to your own tastes and preferences.
17. Marinated Artichokes and Olives
This one is an easy recipe, and it’s great for making ahead too. All you have to do for this is open up a can of artichokes, and then drain off the excess liquid, leaving just the juice behind.
Mix in some extra virgin olive oil, a sprinkle of seasoning, and a good squeeze of lemon juice. Once it’s all mixed together, serve it with some croutons or breadsticks on the side. This is so simple, yet the result tastes amazing!
18. Mediterranean Pasta with Roasted Peppers & Artichokes
This one is another easy recipe to make ahead. For starters, cook up some pasta as per the instructions on the packet. Next, chop up a few peppers into small strips, and cut up a couple of large artichokes into quarters.
Throw the cooked pasta into a big mixing bowl, and then add in the chopped peppers and artichokes, along with a drizzle of olive oil, a sprinkling of oregano, and some freshly grated Parmesan cheese. You can serve this with a salad for a quick and healthy lunch, or just pack it into a Tupperware box for a great packed lunch.
19. Artichoke Fritters
A classic Italian snack, artichoke fritters are great as a side dish with an Italian or Mediterranean meal. They’re a great way to use up leftover vegetables, as they’re not too heavy and can hold their shape really well. Try adding in some grated parmesan cheese here for a more savoury flavour.
The batter here is made using a combination of flour, cornflour, eggs, and baking powder. You can make your own so you can enjoy this at home, or just buy a ready-made mix from your local supermarket.
20. Parmesan Baked Artichoke Hearts
This is another recipe I’ve found on Pinterest and it looks so simple to make. It’s basically a quick and easy way to make Parmesan cheese!
You’ll need two cans of artichoke hearts, 5 tablespoons of milk, 1 cup of grated Parmesan, and 1/3 cup of flour. Pour the milk over the top and sprinkle with some grated Parmesan. Mix everything together and bake in the oven for 30 minutes at 180 degrees.
21. Spinach Artichoke Lasagna
A quick and easy recipe for making lasagne at home. You need a can of chopped artichokes and a tub of low fat ricotta cheese, and you’re ready to go.
This recipe comes together in just 20 minutes, and it makes a perfect light lunch or supper if you’re looking to get a little bit of extra veggie goodness in your diet. It’s also really versatile, so feel free to change the cheese for another kind if you prefer.
22. Tempeh Artichoke Wrap
If you’re looking for a vegetarian option to serve alongside your ramen noodles, then this wrap is the way to go! Just layer some tempeh slices over some spinach leaves and top with your favourite toppings.
I like to add chopped tomatoes and lettuce here, but you could use whatever veg you have available. Just be sure to make the filling a little thinner than the other ingredients to allow room for your sauce.
23. Spinach Artichoke Pasta Salad
Pasta salads are usually a great way to make use of leftovers. This particular recipe is really easy to prepare and will satisfy any veggie-lover in your life.
Just throw together some pasta, baby spinach leaves, canned artichoke hearts, and cherry tomatoes and you’ve got a delicious, filling side dish that will keep your dinner guests satisfied!
24. Lamb with Minty Artichokes
Another one of my favourite go-to meals is lamb with minty artichokes. It’s so simple to make, and it’s always guaranteed to impress your family and friends.
Just chop up your favourite seasonal herbs, slice up some minty artichokes, and serve it all with some freshly cooked lamb.
You can choose from a range of different cuts, but I like to buy some lamb shoulder which has plenty of meat on it, and has lots of flavour packed into a really small amount of space.
25. Spinach and Artichoke Melts
These can be served as a side dish alongside any kind of main, or as a stand alone starter. They’re really easy to make and you can prepare them in advance so you can get straight onto making your main meal!
To make the spinach filling, simply heat up some vegetable oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat, then add the chopped onions and celery. Once the vegetables have softened, add the garlic and cook for a few minutes more. Next, stir in the flour and cook for another couple of minutes.
Finally, pour in the milk and bring the mixture to a boil. Stir well, then take the pan off the heat, and stir in the Parmesan cheese and half the parsley. Once everything is mixed together, spoon it into a bowl and cover with cling film to keep it warm while you make the artichokes.
26. Braised Artichokes with Tomatoes
I love the combination of crunchy bread crumbs with tender artichokes, and this recipe offers just that. It’s so simple to prepare, but the result is delicious and so satisfying!
You’ll need a few different things to complete this dish, including canned artichoke hearts, tomato ketchup, breadcrumbs, olive oil, garlic, parsley, and a little bit of seasoning.
27. Poached Salmon with Artichoke Confit
If you love a good ol’ poached salmon with a hint of lemon, I’ve got the perfect recipe for you! Poaching fish is so simple, and can be done in a variety of ways, such as boiling in a covered pan over a gentle heat, or poaching in an oven for 20-30 minutes at a low temperature.
To ensure that your salmon comes out perfectly cooked, you’ll need to check on it every few minutes to see how it’s going. If you prefer your salmon less flaky, go for a thick fillet, instead of a thin, boneless one.
28. Raw Artichoke, Celery, and Parmesan Salad
A light and healthy salad that will satisfy those with a healthy appetite. You’ll need to make sure that you have plenty of fresh ingredients available, but I’m pretty confident that you’ll find it super tasty! The artichoke hearts are really easy to prepare, and can be bought from your local supermarket.
I like to use the frozen type, which I microwave for 10-15 seconds until they start to thaw, before squeezing them out and chopping them up. The celery is also easily accessible if you’re cooking away from home. Try to eat a raw artichoke once in a while – the flavour is so much more intense when it’s not cooked!
29. Grilled Artichokes With Dipping Sauce
The combination of artichokes and dipping sauce is the perfect match for a summer barbecue or picnic. Artichokes are so easy to prepare and they look really pretty when grilled up, drizzled with a bit of olive oil, and served with a little lemon, a sprinkle of garlic powder, and a pinch of salt and pepper.
To make the dipping sauce, combine one can of artichoke hearts in brine, one can of tomatoes, one can of water, one tablespoon of brown sugar, one teaspoon of mustard, and two teaspoons of soy sauce. Stir well, and then simmer over a low heat for ten minutes.
30. Artichoke Tarts
If you’ve been craving an artichoke tart for ages, then you’re in luck! Making them is really easy, and they’re ready in just 15 minutes.
All you need are some ready-rolled shortcrust pastry sheets, an egg, and a jar of marinated artichokes. Spread the pastry out on to a floured work surface, then add the artichokes.
Roll out the pastry, cut it into strips, and place the strips on a baking tray lined with greaseproof paper. Using a pastry brush, brush the edges of the tart with the egg, and bake in a preheated oven at 180°C for 12-15 minutes.
31. Chicken Stew with Artichoke Hearts
Chicken stew is an easy dinner option that you can make on the fly if you’re in a hurry, and one that works well alongside a variety of side dishes.
It’s a really hearty meal, and if you’re trying to stick to a healthy eating plan, it’s also a great way to get in lots of veggies!
