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 :

Dairy Free Vegan


  • 1 can artichoke hearts, rinsed drained and dried well
  • 1/2 pound pasta, cooked according to package directions
  • 2 tbsp vegan butter
  • 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
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Olive oil for frying
  • Vegan Parmesan, 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.

Just bought the app tonight and made this. OMG it was so good!! My teen son loved it, who normally resists my vegan dishes. I had to tweak on two items. I only had red onion and I used rice cooking wine. I will definitely make this again.

Man oh man, this was SO good! My non-vegan husband said that this recipe was at the top of vegan meals I\'ve made for him! This is a def keeper. Really tasty!! If you\'re thinking about trying it, stop thinking about it and just make it! Thanks for an awesome meal tonight!

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!
