– Artichoke – Avocado oil – Kosher salt – Black pepper – Lemons



Preheat your air fryer to 375°F. Cut a lemon into halves. Squeeze one half into a bowl of ice water, and add the lemon half to the bowl and set aside.


Snip the sharp edges of the artichoke leaves with a pair of scissors. Slice off the stem leaving about an inch close to the globe.


Use a serrated peeler to shave off the tough outer parts of the stem. Rub the stem with a lemon wedge immediately to prevent browning.

remove leaves

Remove the tough outer leaves. Starting from where the stem meets the globe, leave about ½ an inch, and slice off the top part of the artichoke.


Slice the part vertically through the stem so you can get two halves. Rub lemon on the part that you're not going to prepare first.

remove fluff

Use a spoon to remove the fluff or the choke and discard. Then, rub some lemon and place it in the lemon water until you prepare the other half.


Remove the artichokes from water and place on a clean kitchen towel. Add the lemon water to a pot and bring the water to boil on high heat. 


Place a steamer basket in the pot and steam the artichoke for about 10-15 minutes. dry the artichokes thoroughly using a kitchen towel.


Place them cut side up on your air fryer tray, and drizzle some avocado oil, salt, and pepper and rub them into the flat side of the artichoke.

Air fry at 375°F for 10 minutes. Then, check every minute for up to 5 more minutes to get to perfect golden brown roasted artichokes.
