Fried Artichokes over Lemon Butter Pasta [Vegan]

I love artichokes. I grew up eating artichokes made by both my Grandmother or Mother. In fact, I have been eating them so long I don't really remember life without them!

I did the pasta with a lemon butter sauce, but you could experiment with whatever sauce you prefer.

Fried Artichokes over Lemon Butter Pasta [Vegan]

This Recipe is :



  • 1 can artichoke hearts, rinsed drained and dried well
  • 1/2 pound pasta, cooked according to package directions
  • 2 tbsp vegan butter (I used Earth Balance)
  • 2 tbsp finely minced yellow onion
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 4 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp dry white wine
  • 2 tbsp capers
  • 2 tbsp cold vegan butter (I used Earth Balance)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Olive oil for frying
  • Parmela for sprinkling (optional)


  1. Add pasta to boiling salted water. Cook per package directions.
  2. Add about 1/2 inch of olive oil to a shallow pan.  Turn on medium high heat. When oil is hot add the drained and dried artichoke hears.  Allow to cook until golden brown on all sides.  Remove from oil and place on a paper towel to absorb excess oil. Season lightly with salt and pepper.
  3. While pasta and artichokes are cooking add 2 tablespoons of the vegan butter to a saute pan over medium heat.  When butter is melted add the onion, lemon juice and garlic and season with salt and pepper.  Cook for a few minutes until onion begins to soften. Add the wine and continue to cook for a few minutes stirring to incorporate. Once incorporated add the cold butter, re-season with salt and pepper and whisk to emulsify.
  4. When the pasta is finished cooking drain in a colander and when ready, add to the sauce. Toss to coat.
  5. To serve, place pasta in a plate or bowl, top with the artichoke hearts, capers and Parmela if using.

This is fantastic! We love it! We usually add a bit more onions and sometimes sprinkle sun-dried tomatoes over the top or even some little patty-pan squash slices to the artichoke saute. Very flavorful!
